[802SEC] Endorsement and affiliation letters

Dear EC list readers

The terms for 802 EC members and WG Vice Chair's terms expire at the end
of the closing plenary session in March 2010 ("close of the first
plenary session of each even numbered year").

Anyone who is is to be confirmed by the Sponsor (WG Chairs and Vice
Chairs, TAG Chairs and Vice Chairs and Sponsor officers) is required to
file a letter of endorsement with the Recording Secretary (i.e., me) for
the upcoming 2 year term.  The letter is to be signed by both "the
Sponsor member and an individual who has management responsibility for
the Sponsor member".  There are specific requirements for the content of
this letter (given below).

An affiliation letter is also required. The affiliation letter is signed
by the Sponsor member.

These can be brought to the meeting, or if you wish, they can be mailed
to me at the address in the EC contact list (provided they arrive prior
to 10 March, 2010).

I have posted sample endorsement and affiliation letters to the 802
website at: in both ODF and Word

total of 5 terms or part terms and are running for another term should

November 2009 plenary meeting). (3.2.1 of the OM)
