[10GBT] FW: [802.3] Nashua meeting

Dear Task Force members,
If you have not booked your room for the September interim meeting, please do so as soon as possible as the hotel has extended the room block until Wednesday, August 17th.  I would like to encourage all those planning to attend the meeting to book into the Nashua Crowne Plaza as the meeting room costs are being waived based upon the number of hotel rooms being rented.  If you have booked a room at another hotel, please cancel that room and book into the Crowne Plaza.  Booking into the Crowne Plaza helps ensure that the costs for the meeting are offset by the number of room nights, and permits Texas Instruments (our host) to not require a meeting fee from you.  Your support is greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

Brad Booth
Chair, IEEE P802.3an Task Force

I regret to say that there have been numerous issues with the hotel reservation system.  Let me assure you that there are still plenty of rooms at the conference hotel and that there is no need to stay offsite as yet, nor should there be a need at all.  Should anyone be told, either via the web or via a phone call that there are no rooms please contact me immediately.   Today at least it would appear that the system is functioning.


If you have taken a room elsewhere due to the reservation issues I would request that you try to change your arrangements to the conference hotel in order to support the meeting.  There is no meeting fee for this event as it is being hosted by Texas Instruments; however, the meeting rooms are being comped by the hotel with an expectation that there will be sufficient hotel rooms rented by guest to make it worth the hotel’s while.  With all the issues in the reservation system the hotel has extended the block to August 17.


The Sue O’Donnell (+1 603 886 1200) of the Nashau Crowne Plaza has asked that should anyone have an issue getting the TXI rate to please also contact her and she will manually process the reservation.  Hopefully it will not come to the need for personal intervention, but please contact her (as well as me) should any issue arise in the future.


Again, I regret the issues with the hotel bookings and would ask that any failure to get a room be reported to me, that you try to stay at the conference hotel and, most of all, that these reservation issues would just go away.
