Re: [802SEC] Proposed Rules Change for ballot on WG Membership

Mat, I have one proposed change to your "proposed rules" based on the scenario of someone "coming out of retirement" to chair a new WG.  If we look at the present situation for 802.20, your rules could bar Ken Alonge, the chair of the hibernating 802.10 from becoming the 802.20 chair because he would be "unlikely to have sufficient familiarity with the Policies and Procedures of IEEE 802, as well as the IEEE 802 Standards Association (IEEE-SA), and IEEE Computer Society."  Obviously, that would not be the case for Ken. 
My recommendation would be to change the words "who is not a member in good standing in IEEE 802,..." to "who has never established membership or is not presently a member in good standing in IEEE 802,..."  or words to this effect.
Best regards,

Subject: [802SEC] Proposed Rules Change for ballot on WG Membership



In light of recent events, I feel it necessary to introduce an emergency request for a rules change ballot concerning establishing membership during the formation of a new Working Group.


Bob O’Hara, since this has never been discussed before, please allow 20 minutes for this topic on tomorrow’s agenda if possible.  Everyone should feel free to provide comments on the proposed rules change to me, and I will do my best to incorporate suggestions provided prior to the start of the SEC meeting tomorrow.


Thanks to all,
