[802SEC] Proposed change to the Chair's Guideline - section 2.4 Tutorials

I request the following 4 changes be considered for the 2017 March Plenary:
Suggested change in  "IEEE 802 LMSC Chair's Guidelines, v24, effective 11 November 2016"

   Section 2.4 Tutorials:
     3) Mechanics of Tutorials
f) Schedule is provided on IEEE 802 website with abstracts 7 days before the meeting.
g) The final PDF version of the presentations shall be filed with the recording secretary at least 24 hours before the tutorial, or the tutorial may be postponed.
h) Held Monday, 6:00 pm–7:30 pm, 7:30 pm– 9:00 pm, 9:00 pm–10:30 pm, and are held on Tuesday only on an optional basis (i.e., concurrent WG meetings are allowed)

#1: Change f) from 7 days to 15 days

Rationale - the form requesting the tutorial has a 45 day deadline, then there is 10 days to resolve issues and the schedule has to be posted 30 days in advance. The form has the abstract, so posting the abstract 15 days prior to the meeting should be easily doable.

#2: Change the filing deadline in "g)" of the final PDF to 7 days prior to meeting.  (change "24 hours" to "7 days")

Rationale - This would give attendees more time for planning to attend or not.  to have questions prepared etc and it gives the Recording secretary an opportunity to have a deadline for "posting time" 

#3 Add a posting deadline for the Recording Secretary - Suggestion is 5 days.

Rationale - we should include in "g)" the expectation of when it should be posted.

#4: Change the times stated in h) from "6:00 pm–7:30 pm, 7:30 pm– 9:00 pm, 9:00 pm–10:30 pm"
to  "6:00 pm–7:20 pm, 7:30 pm– 8:50 pm, 9:00 pm–10:30 pm"

Rationale - we cannot swap tutorial speakers instantaneously, giving a 10 minute swap time allows for the next tutorial to start on time.

I would expect to discuss this during the Sunday night Rules meeting.
