RE: [802SEC] Wednesday deadline for 802 News Bulletin info

Bob Grow and SEC members,

Using the WG chairs closing reports is an excellent idea.  Unfortunately,
those are not forthcoming either.  So far Bob O'Hara has received reports
from 802.1, 802.3 and 802.16.

How about it 802.11, 802.15 and 802.17 WG Chairs (and/or vice chairs in the
case of those over-loaded WG chairs)???--Assemble your reports and send them
to Bob O'Hara so he can complete the plenary session minutes and Roger Marks
so he can use them as input to the PR process?

This will only take a small amount of time.  You will be fulfilling your WG
chair duties and 802 should be able to get a reasonable amount of PR out of
the material.

As previously mentioned, 802.3 has an alternative PR arm (the various
alliances).  With PR already covered, being two weeks behind on email, a
very heavy personal workload ... then, writing a "no news blurb" for the
meeting assumes very low priority.

If staff wants to build this function they need to drive it.  Why isn't the
chair's closing report the basis for staff writing the PR piece, which they
then request the chair review?

The response to the call for summary info from the WGs is disappointing.
Why are 802.3, 802.11, 802.15 and 802.17 not responding?  What can be done
to improve the process?

It would be beneficial for 802 to publicize an 802-wide summary and promote
what we've accomplished at our plenary session.  From that summary, pointers
can be made to WG web sites detailing the specific accomplishments.

Let's make a more concerted effort to provide the summary information to
Karen McCabe.

Here is an update on the 802 News Bulletin:

*The deadlines of last Monday and last Wednesday are well behind us.
*To me knowledge, only 802.1 and 802.16 have contributed 802 News
Bulletin input.
*No one else has said anything (e.g., "I'll send something"; "I won't
send something", ...)
*802.15 identified Jim Meyer the Working Grop point of contact.
