Re: [802SEC] +++ 10-day EC Email Ballot +++ Definition of hotel stay
My vote is DISAPPROVE
To my mind, the wording of the original motion is clear.
The motion is an attempt to make the motion what some want it to mean
instead of what it says.
When we take this issue up again "for real" to further refine hotel stay
(as I believe we will) I believe that we need to cover (at least) the
- Multiple persons in a room (e.g. what constitutes proof, a room
key or does it take one's name on the registration, will the hotel put
multiple names on the registration, etc.)
- How many nights do you have to stay if you are only at the
Plenary for a day? How do we specify this?

Dear 802 EC members
Paul Nikolich has delegated the conduct of the EC electronic ballot on
the following motion to me.
In the November 2009 meeting, the EC passed the following motion:
"IEEE-802 Registration Procedures will be effective for the March 2010
meeting as follows:
1) We will advance the registration cut-off date by 2-weeks, from
17-days prior to the meeting, to 31-days prior to the meeting.
2) We will advance the hotel room-block cut-off by the same amount so
that both occur on the same date.
3) We will adjust the Session Registration Fees to the following
o Web Early-Registration Fee (prior to 31-day cut-off) will remain
o Web Registration Fee (after the Early-Registration cut-off but at
least 7-days before start of session (Monday) will now be $500.US
o Late Web or On-site Registration (less than 7-days before or
during the session) will now be $600.US
4) A $300.US surcharge will be added to the registration fee for
those attendees not booking and staying in the 802-contracted hotel.
Proof of hotel stay will be required to prevent the surcharge."
The purpose of this motion is to clarify what a "hotel stay" means.
Accordingly, the motion is as follows:
Moved that "In order to avoid paying the $300 US surcharge on the
registration, a hotel stay is defined as at least two nights booking
and staying in the 802 contracted hotel. The effect of voting no on
this motion is that a hotel stay is defined as at least one night
booking and staying in the 802 contracted hotel." Effective beginning
with the November 2010 meeting.
Note that although I am moving the motion for the purpose of resolving
this issue, I will be voting no as I believe that the original motion
is clear that only a single night is required by the wording.
