Re: [802SEC] Updated files for Telecon on June 5th 10am ET
Dear James, a
Yes, this is true, and maybe the example is not a good one, but lets look at another. Once at a venue, all contracts signed, capacity and wireless systems are promised
to take care of the needs of a meeting. Some partners and Chairs arrive early to get things going, at an interim this may not include all voting EC members. And, as has happened
before, what is needed is not what is provided putting in jeopardy the wireless abilities for the meeting. The partnership of 802 members/ and the for profit business trusted
partner goes into action to make things right, get the venues contractors there to tell them how to rectify the situation. But alas, not all the equipment
is available instantaneously, and some things need to be bought on the spot, paid back by the venue, yet at any amount, who is there should it be ahead of time
or it is an interim to authorize anything? Contingencies do happen, so at the least, One of the Chairs that arrives early enough to authorize
such expenses, even to be paid back or deducted by the venue has to happen, has happened, and luckily the Chair who was there took care of the situation
with the trusted for profit partner. Where to put this in the Chairs rules at an interim or otherwise?
No one expects these things…but they do, on occasion happen. OF course the EC would approve after the fact, it is the after the fact that worries me.
But I will yield to your judgement.

I would also suggest that we explicitly approve any future sites (including those already scheduled) at our next meeting (or earlier, if Clint needs to approve money for them). The EC Treasurer can then keep track of when each meeting venue was approved by the EC.
