Thank you for pointing this out to me, Pat.
That it's in the rules doesn't make it right. Executive committee is the term used by other sponsors when a
subset of the sponsor is involved. In our case, executive committee should mean the officers of the sponsor.
It's no big deal - I just wondered if there was a historic reason.

Because our rules say that is the name. See 5.1 of the LMSC P&P. "The LMSC organization consists of the Executive Committee (Sponsor), WGs, Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs), and Executive Committee Study Groups (ECSGs)."
LMSC stands for LAN/MAN Standards Committee. If we called ourselves Sponsor Committee and the acronym SC was used, it would be ambiguous whether it stood for Sponsor Committee or Executive Committee. There are no occurrences of "Sponsor Committee" in the LMSC P&P and the LMSC OM. The baseline sponsor P&P doesn't have the term Sponsor Committee either. It does mention Executive Committees as one of the types of administrative subgroups a sponsor might have.

Dear 802 EC,
The question is a simple one. Why is the EC called the EC (and sometimes the SEC)?
The implication of that name is that the EC is an executive subset of the Sponsor Committee. However, the EC
comprises all the members of the LAN/MAN Sponsor Committee, so its separate identification is nugatory.
