Re: [802SEC] +++Motion to amend March 2009 venue from Rome IT to Vancouver BC+++urgent--please cast your vote quickly+++open: 26NOV07
I'm not wanting to start another string of comments on this.
In my ITU-R work I have a very clear view of the value of IEEE 802 (and
IEEE in general) being seen as a truly international SDO. At least in
ITU-R we seem to be making progress in communicating that to others and
having nNA plenary sessions is, in my view, a necessary part of that
Like some others I do not think Vancouver should have been an option if
we were really looking for a nNA venue. Unlike some others I do not have
totally pleasant memories of our last meeting there.
Rome I expected to be expensive. I've attend ITU-R and EMTEL/WGET
meetings there; nothing cheap about it. The hotel seems to have issues
but last time I checked Rome was a nNA venue.
Which brings me to my vote. At this point in time I cannot be
enthusiastic about either location so I abstain.

Dear EC members,
Since LMSC does not have any commitments that are impossible to undo
the below motion is in order. Buzz requested a quick resolution to this
ballot (under 3 days) because the potential venues need a commitment
from 802 soon, please cast your ballot as quickly as possible.
The ballot opens 2pm ET Monday 26NOV 2007 and closes the earlier of 2pm
ET 6DEC 2007 or 24 hours after all eligible EC members have cast a vote.
The motion under consideration:
Moved Thaler, Second Grow: Motion to amend the "previously adopted
to replace "Rome" with "Vancouver".
"the previously adopted motion" = "Motion to approve the selection of
Rome, Italy as the venue for the March 2009 Plenary Session", 8/6/1
Passed (this is from item 10.02 nNA Plenary venue survey results and
final venue selection at the closing EC meeting.)
Therefore the text under consideration is:
"Motion to approve the selection of Vancouver, B.C. Canada as the venue
for the March 2009 Plenary Session"*.
*note: I replaced the word "Italy" with "B.C. Canada" as an editorial
correction to the motion to amend
