Re: [802SEC] +++ 10-day EC Email Ballot +++ Exec Secretary March T&L Funding

Dear John

I vote Disapprove for the following reasons:

1) We do not have a procedure for approving "reasonable and customary
expenses" or a policy that determines what is "reasonable and
customary".  Who will review and approve the expenses?  Are there any
limits to the type of expenses that are covered (e.g., laundry, fitness
room fees, airfare, taxi, rental car, hotel, meals, etc.).  Is there are
per diem limit for meals?  Before we embark on this path, we need to
have policies in place to handle this.

2) The 802 EC has not developed a policy on which members should have
expenses reimbursed.  Is there a reason that one member has their
expenses partially covered and others do not?

3) All EC members have current endorsement letters promising to cover
all expenses through the March 2010 meeting.  One purpose of the letter
is so that the Sponsor knows that it will not be required to cover any
of those expenses.  If we want to create a new policy going forward,
then we should discuss that in the March meeting.
