[802SEC] Indemnification policy update

Dear EC members,
I spoke with Karen Kenney yesterday (Monday Nov 24) on the indemnification matter.  Karen informed me that a meeting has been scheduled among IEEE management and counsel on December 19th to begin resolution of the matter.  The meeting will include the IEEE corporate participants (Executive Director of the IEEE (Dan Senese), IEEE legal counsel (Bob Dwyer),  IEEE Staff Director-Financial Services (Tom Lynch)), and IEEE-SA staff participants (Pam Deese, Judy Gorman, Karen Kenney and ML Neilson).  It appears this matter is being taken very seriously by IEEE management and they are trying to address it in a timely manner.  I expressed my concern and our need to have a revised interpretation prepared no later than the January interim session, or else  volunteer leadership may resign as a result of a poorly interpreted, poorly understood policy that is of critical importance to all our volunteers.
I will continue to work closely with Karen to ensure this matter is satifactorily resolved as quickly as possible.
