Re: [802SEC] Responses on venue for March 2009 - Please VOTE Now !!!
An extra fee for those attendees was suggested by Buzz when I raised the
concern about room pick-up given the availability of lower priced hotels
in Rome. I believe that the recent Seoul meeting of 802.3 had an extra
fee for those not staying in the hotel. If Buzz can put forward a plan
where it isn't necessary, than I'm fine with that but it is an option
I'm willing to accept.
