Additional meeting information –


The 802.3 Opening Plenary starts Monday at 1pm, and is typically completed by 6pm.

The 802.3 Closing Plenary starts Thursday at 1pm.


Individuals eligible to become 802.3 voters are reminded that they must be at one of these two meetings to request voting rights.


As a reminder to the group, we are a contribution driven organization, and we do have a fairly large project underway.  It should not be assumed by anyone that work will just get done without contributions to drive it.  Areas not moving forward will be brought to the attention of the Task Force for consideration on how to address; as such issues can not be allowed to threaten the overall project schedule. 


I look forward to seeing everyone in Dallas!


 Best Regards,


John D’Ambrosia
