I fully support the concept of using existing policy to enforce meeting fees for virtual meetings. The fees should not be very high anyway because no cookies are included. 😊
You raised the issue of individuals ‘ghosting’ the meeting not paying a meeting fee. I don’t have a problem with such people. Indeed, I like the idea of lots of observers because they may become participants in the future.
However, I would prefer that they registered their attendance in IMAT so that we know who is observing. Maybe we specify that observers
In the context of the rules, the registration policy for observers would be “no fee”
As suggested by David at the last meeting, and with his help, I think that we should consider just using the existing policy for enforcing virtual meeting fees. The existing policy can be found in subclause 5.4 of the IEEE 802 Operations Manual <https://mentor.ieee.org/802-ec/dcn/17/ec-17-0090-24-0PNP-ieee-802-lmsc-operations-manual.pdf#page=13 >.
The policy itself is a variation on the ‘no attendance credit and no voting’, where ethe voting rights would be revoked after the meeting (and period to cure). The policy also allows for the Treasurer and Executive Secretary to implement, and I believe we could allow for a reasonable grace period for individuals to pay.
There is the corner case of individuals ‘ghosting’ the meeting by not logging into IMAT, voting or otherwise, but then again, they are not getting attendance credit or exercising voting rights anyways. It’s probably not worth spending a huge amount of effort on these ‘observers’.
Please look at the existing policy in preparation for our discussion at the next EC meeting.
