Re: [802SEC] Proposed rule changes for July meeting


That would be OK, if we define what "alternates" are. For example, I do not have an alternate for my position (and I don't think I should have one).

Implicit in you choice is that we do not require non-voting members to show financial support for their position nor require them to act and vote as an individual and a professional. There is some justification for this, we would simply be saying that the non-voting members are not necessary to the continuing function of the EC and hence their absence from plenary (and potentially, the lack of time to support the work away from meetings) will not impede the operation of the EC.

I can see it either way and would look forward to other EC member's opinion.

PS: Of course, if we take this tack, then we can't harass you for letters in 2014, which would lower the entertainment value of the March 2014 meeting. :)

In the interest of getting the P&P changes onto AudCom's agenda, I
would like to start discussion of the proposed changes by email so
that we can have some level of consensus by the Sunday night rules
meeting that will lead to a successful motion on Monday morning.

Accordingly, I would like to take up discussion of one of the proposed
changes on this email in search of feedback.

Every 2 years, the Recording secretary asks for letters of endorsement
from potential EC members.  Currently the rule states "Any person to
be confirmed by the Sponsor shall ...".  I had produced two suggestions:

 a) "All members of the Sponsor shall ..."
 b) "All voting members of the Sponsor shall ..."

However, I have noticed that this leaves out WG and TAG Vice Chairs,
who are not members of the Sponsor, but can vote (under the newly
modified rules) and are confirmed by the sponsor.

It turns out that there is no central place that lists all the persons
that are to be confirmed by the Sponsor.

So 2 questions:
 1) Should non-voting members of the Sponsor be required to file
letters of affiliation including the statement regarding how to vote?
 2) Should we add a list of the persons to be confirmed by the Sponsor?
