[802SEC] +++ 5-day EC Straw Poll +++ Plenary Session Snack Break Times
Colleagues, After reviewing the inputs on the Snack Break straw poll
we don't quite have a clear winner yet. Can we get a few more votes to put
us over the top ???
If we are approved we will run the test for this session, and if we are not
we will leave all the Break times as they are. J

Whereas: It has been observed that our current afternoon 2-hour snack break
window (2-4pm) can be disruptive to the meetings in progress since it causes
attendees to leave the meeting in progress to get snacks, which can then
inspire other attendees to do the same, so it has been proposed that the
interval for snacks be shortened to just (3-4pm) to reduce this problem.
And Whereas: It has also been observed that the current 2-hour window
permits more flexibility in when breaks are taken to accommodate the
completion of topics under discussion without interruption.
Therefore: After due consideration it has been proposed that we ask the EC
to vote on whether we should shorten the snack interval to 1-hour instead of
the current 2-hours, i.e. (3-4pm) instead of (2-4pm).
To approve reduction of the IEEE-802 Plenary Session snack time from 2-hours
to 1-hour, i.e. (3-4pm). Coffee & Tea will continue to be available for the
full 2-hours, i.e. (9-11am) and (2-4pm).
