[802SEC] +++ EC Email Ballot: (early close) Motion to ease anti-commercialization rules for Plenary Sponsor for the Beijing meeting
Dear EC members
The Sponsor Chair has delegated the conduct of an EC electronic ballot
on the following motion to me.
PURPOSE OF THE MOTION
One time "softening" of anti-commercialization rules for Plenary
Sponsor for the March 2014 Beijing meeting.
Guidelines for the March 2014 Beijing Plenary Meeting should be aligned
to the current guidelines for the IETF* with respect to allowable
commercial presence and activities at a Plenary by a major meeting
sponsor/underwriter. Details of implementation are left to the
discretion of the 802 Chair or his designated representative.
*Sponsor Benefits such as:
- Meeting Program Listing
- Meeting signage (e.g. at breaks there will be signs out that say
this break was sponsored by ...)
- Logo on meeting announcements for that plenary
- Logo on Meeting Web page (with link to corporate web page?)
- Badge lanyards and/or sponsor logo on badges (we do this for
- Sponsor Literature/Visual Display area
(e. g. a few tables set up, usually somewhere near the
registration area where the sponsors can hand out some corporate
literature and/or they some trinkets with their logo)
Start of ballot: 20 August 2013
Close of ballot: 30 August, 2013, 21:00 PDT
Early close: As stated in the "Voting rules" subclause of the IEEE LMSC
OM, "For urgent matters once sufficient response is received to clearly
decide a matter, the ballot may be closed early."
As our plenary meeting in March 2014 is fast approaching, this is an
urgent matter as we seek to find Sponsors to offset the cost of this
