If a Motion to Suspend is made, we'll conduct an EC email ballot with
early close provision. If the motion passes in time, we will hold
the teleconference meeting. If not, we will delay action until at
least 30 days from now.

Please refer to our procedures:
Sponsor meetings may be conducted either exclusively in-person or
in-person with one or more participants contributing via electronic
means, or exclusively via electronic means. Sponsor meetings shall be
held, as decided by the Sponsor Chair, or by petition of 5 or more voting
members, to conduct business such as making assignments, receiving
reports of work, progressing draft standards, resolving differences among
subgroups, and considering views and objections from any source. A
meeting notice shall be distributed to all members at least 30 days in
advance of the meeting. A meeting agenda shall be distributed to all
members at least 14 days in advance of the meeting. Meetings of subgroups
may be held as decided upon by the members or Chair of the
subgroup. Notification of the potential for action shall be
included on any distributed agendas for meetings.
Note that all IEEE Standards development meetings are open to anyone who
has a material interest and wishes to attend, however some meetings may
occur in Executive Session (see Clause 6.3).
Your request for a meeting does not meet the notice requirement (N.B.
"shall" not "should").

Dear EC members,----------

I want to convene an 802 Executive Committee telecon meeting Tuesday 30
April from noon-12:30 in executive session. The agenda is one item:
decide on the Meeting Manager Services Agreement.
We will hold the telecon meeting in executive session (instead of having
a private EC email ballot) because of the concerns I've heard from some
EC members regarding the best way to make a formal, yet non-public, EC
decision because of the confidential nature of the Services
All 802 EC members are invited to participate. Within the next day,
I will send a private email to each 802 EC member with the teleconference
details. Jon do the same with the latest revision of the Meeting
Manager Service Agreement.
Since we've spent a fair amount of time on this topic I expect we will
reach a decision at the teleconference quickly. I've budgeted 30
minutes, but expect that the meeting will be shorter.
I realize this is short notice, thank you for your flexibility on the
timing of this meeting.
p.s. Please let me know (by reply email) that you are able to participate
in the meeting (or not) within the next day. If we are unable to
reach quorum I will reschedule.
