RE: E-Mail Registration Process

Bob,  We always provide the meeting information to Howard Frazier 
(who does the actual posting) in MS Word format.  Howard seems to 
have a major dislike for all things Microsoft, so he always converts 
the document to PDF before posting.  We have asked (more than 
once) that BOTH versions be posted for exactly the reasons which 
you have mentioned, but you can see the result.   Perhaps an SEC 
motion to that effect is in order?   But HTML format is generally a 
problem because of all the differences the type-of-browser-used 
introduces making several of our forms unreadable or unprintable.  
I would think that MS Word & PDF versions would be sufficient.  

We have provided reg slots for SG's in the past, but because of their 
transitory nature the data is difficult to track through the data base 
and we wind up with a conversion process when the SG later 
becomes a WG.  We're open to suggestion though if you think it is 
important.  We have never been able to use the preference data to 
allocate meeting space because so much of it comes in so late and 
we still have lots of folks who just show up at the meeting.  We rely 
instead on the chair's estimates for space requirements.  

Hope this helps.  

Thanx,  Buzz
