[EFM] Meeting Reminder

See the message below forwarded from Dr. Rigsbee.  
Book now, or be sorry. Don't forget that 802.3ah will hold
a meeting on Sunday, 7/7 from 1-6 pm in the Fairmont Hotel
Vancouver.  The topics to be covered at this "interim" meeting are:

1) P2MP Layering and Security motions tabled in Edinburgh
2) FEC baseline proposal review
3) Copper - objectives and the plan for the week

We will also cheat just a little bit and get our normal "802.3ah opening
ceremonies" out of the way on Sunday, even though this will occur
before the official start of the 802 Plenary week meeting.  I hope that no
one objects to this time saving deviation from normal procedure.
I want to make all of Tuesday and Wednesday available for sub-task
force breakout sessions.

Chair, IEEE 802.3ah EFM Task Force

IEEE 802: Meeting Information Update Memo - 5th  Announcement

DATE:   Thursday, June 6, 2002
ATTN:   All IEEE 802 Attendees
SUBJ:   Hyatt Regency is: NOW SOLD OUT !!!

The Hyatt is now Sold-Out and we recommend the Fairmont as the best
choice for an alternate because it is just across the street, so book your
reservation NOW or you may wind up stuck at a HoJo 20 miles away.  July is
HIGH SEASON so once these rooms are gone, it may be very difficult to find
anything else.  You can always cancel/modify without penalty if your plans
should change.

a) The Hyatt Regency Vancouver is the site for the July 2002 IEEE 802
Plenary Meeting as well as Working Groups 802.1, 802.11, 802.15, 802.16,
802.17, and 802.18.  The IEEE 802 Opening Plenary begins Monday, July 8th
at 11:00am and the 802 Working Group Meetings begin at 1:00pm.  Please
note:  Some 802 Working Groups now have scheduled meetings for Friday
morning, July 12th.  Please visit the home web site for your Working Group
for the detailed WG agenda.  The closing Executive Committee meeting is
currently scheduled to be held from 1pm to 6pm on Friday, July 12th. This
meeting will again be a Split-Meeting due to our continued high attendance.
All 802.3 WG meetings will be held at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, so if
you are planning to attend 802.3 all week and are currently booked at the
Hyatt, you should seriously consider switching your hotel reservation.
