Ooooo Tony,  This seems a very precise and unambiguous statement of WG membership rules. 
Might I suggest you submit it to our rules drafting committee to consider as a possible prototype for a revised section on membership. 
Clarity is GOODNESS when it comes to rules.    :-)  

Thanx,  Buzz

Subject: [802.1] Membership update

a  definition of the current membership rules. As those of you that were present in July will know, the current 802 rules on membership are somewhat in need of some minor clarification, i.e., major re-writing; however, the following reflects current (and historical) practice within 802.1 with regard to achieving, maintaining, and losing voting membership:

- 802.1 holds two kinds of working sessions; Plenary sessions (in conjunction with the Plenary sessions of 802 as a whole), in March, July, and November of each year, and Interim sessions, scheduled as needed between Plenary sessions.

- Each working session consists of a number of meetings; a meeting is a contiguous period of time during which the working group (or its task groups) meet to do business. Typically a meeting consists of a morning or an afternoon during a Plenary or Interim session; there are therefore typically 4 or more meetings held during a session.

- Participants in 802.1 working sessions can claim attendance credit by signing the signup sheets circulated during each meeting. By signing the sheet, you are indicating that, by the end of that meeting, you will have been present for the majority of the time allocated for that meeting. (This last point is significant, as it is not legitimate to claim attendance at a meeting of two different working groups that occupy the same time period.)

- If a participant claims attendance credit for 75% or more of the meetings scheduled for an 802.1 session, then they have achieved qualifying attendance at that session.

- If a participant has qualifying attendance at two out of the last four Plenary sessions of 802.1, then they can claim voting membership at the next Plenary session they attend, PROVIDED THAT they have indicated to the WG Chair that they have the intention to become a voting member of the working group. Qualifying attendance at one properly constituted 802.1 Interim session that occurred during the span of the four Plenary sessions can be substituted for one of the two qualifying Plenary session attendances.

- Voting membership is maintained by qualifying attendance at two out of the last four Plenary sessions of 802.1, and by responding to 2 out of the last 3 Working Group ballots. Again, qualifying attendance at one properly constituted 802.1 Interim session that occurred during the span of the four Plenary sessions can be substituted for one of the two qualifying Plenary session attendances.

- Voting membership, and all attendance credit achieved up to that date, can be lost by a participant failing to meet their financial obligations to IEEE 802 or to the sponsors of an Interim meeting, i.e., by failing to pay any attendance fees or dues that may be owing to IEEE 802 or to a meeting sponsor.

If you are planning to gain voting rights in 802.1, please bear in mind that you should regard voting membership as an obligation, rather than a privilege. By gaining voting rights, you are signing up to active participation in the work of the WG, and in particular, to active participation in WG ballots. If you do not feel able to commit to doing that work, please reconsider whether it is appropriate to become a voter. In order for our work to progress, we are required to gain a 75% voter response rate in WG ballots, so the last thing we need is voting members that cannot or will not carry out their obligations.
