Regarding Presentation Requests....

Everyone should be made aware that I have been pushing back on the various presenters to make sure that all the material is germane to the objectives of the July meeting. Specifically, I have been challenging requests for presentations that are not directly tied to proposals for inclusion into draft one of the standard.
Simply stated, I have been looking for two kinds of presentations:
1. I will move to put the following material into the first draft.
2. I support that proposal XYZ be adopted.
Type 1 is pure content.
Type 2 is the "why proposal XYZ meets the objectives and 5 criteria...." Clearly, a Type 2 should be tied directly to a Type 1.
Having these together in one presentation is not a problem.
In some cases I have gotten Type 2's without any associated Type 1. In some cases, I have gotten requests for Type 2a, 2b, 2c....
Would everyone please help me reduce redundancy by working with each other to consolidate material. Let's make the meeting crisp and clean.
