That probably is not
a good indicator because it lags the attendance change. Also, in the past I've
seen many people get the two meetings and then not show up to a third to get
voting status. In 802.3, usually well under half the people on the potential
voters list at a meeting become voters that meeting.
The voters list also
includes people who didn't come to this meeting. Some voters are very regular
attendees and some are more sporatic. After all, they can miss half the meetings
and still be a voter. Since changes in voting membership lag attendance, it may
not be a good indicator of future meeting size. Look at 802.11 attendence and
membership which went very low for a while and now is back at the top of the

Since it takes multiple sessions to establish (and loose)
membership. By tracking how many individuals are within one meeting of
gaining (or losing) membership, we probably could build a fairly accurate
filter for one meeting out! Just a guess.

Dear WG and TAG chairs,
I now have all the membership data. The
summary information is as follows:
It is interesting to note that the total
membership is close to the actual number of plenary session attendees.
There is little correlation, I think, since many attendees do not ever
become members, and some attendees are members of multiple groups.
Hmmm. Maybe 'Membership" is a good long term averaging filter that is
a good predictor of plenary session attendance. I would be interested
to hear your opinions.
Now that we have the current data, I'm curious
as to what you think will happen to the number of your voters versus
time. If any of you are willing to estimate your voting
membership size for each plenary through the November 2005, send it to
me and I collect that information and we could use it as another estimate
tool for our plenary session attendance.
