Dear Members of the IEEE 802.3ah EFM Task Force,

Due to our current volume of work, we will hold an
interim meeting on Sunday, July 7th in Vancouver, BC,
at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, from 1 to 6 pm.  This
email message serves as the official notice of this meeting,
and complies with the notification requirements of our
operating rules.

Note that this is the venue for the next meeting of  the
IEEE 802.3 Working Group. However, although
IEEE 802.3ah will also be meeting on  Tuesday, Wednesday,
and Thursday of the week, as regularly scheduled, the meeting
on Sunday must, according to our rules, be considered an
"interim" meeting of one day duration.  Therefore, attendance
at the Sunday meeting will not accrue towards the requirements
for obtaining voting rights.

Please read the message from the conference organizers as
included below.  Please make your reservations at the Fairmont
Hotel Vancouver immediately, as the deadline is May 31st, after
which, rooms may not be available.

An agenda for the Sunday meeting will be made available shortly.
I intend to use the time for a general session of the IEEE 802.3ah
EFM Task Force to address issues that were left unresolved at
the end of our meeting in Edinburgh, particularly those issues
pertaining to P2MP, FEC, and Copper.  Regular sub task force
breakout sessions will begin first thing Tuesday morning, July 9th..

The previously announced deadlines and instructions for the submittal
of presentation materials remain unchanged. The deadline for
submittal of materials is Friday, June 28th, and you must contact
one of the sub task force chairs or editors no later than Friday, June
14th to coordinate your presentation.  See my email of May 29th
for complete instructions.

Chair, IEEE P802.3ah EFM Task Force
