Re: [802SEC] +++ 10-day EC Email Ballot +++ Definition of hotel stay
I would like to call an early close to this ballot. I believe that
sufficient responses (14 out of 17) have been received to clearly decide
The vote tally that I have is as follows:
Vote categories: APP DIS ABS DNV
VC Pat Thaler DNV
VC Mat Sherman DIS
ES Jon Rosdahl DIS
RS James Gilb DIS
TR John Hawkins APP
01 Tony Jeffree DIS
03 David Law DIS

16 Roger Marks DIS
17 John Lemon DNV
18 Mike Lynch ABS
19 Steve Shellhammer DIS
20 Mark Klerer DIS
21 Subir Das DIS
22 Apurva Mody ABS
23 Geoff Thompson DIS
17 TOTALS result 01 11 02 03
The motion fails. As specified in the motion, this means that "a hotel
stay is defined as at least one night booking and staying in the 802
contracted hotel." for at least the November meeting.
I expect we will have lively discussion on this issue in Dallas.
Please send me any corrections to the tally, I will post and updated
result in 24 hours if there are any changes.

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 formula:
o Web Early-Registration Fee (prior to 31-day cut-off) will remain at
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.
