IEEE 802 LMSC Status Update - 22 Apr 2020

Dear IEEE 802 LMSC Participants,

Please remember face to face meetings scheduled for May 2020 have been cancelled. Furthermore, the IEEE 802 Executive Committee (EC) decided to cancel face to face meetings scheduled for July 2020 at the 21 April 2020 EC meeting due to the ongoing pandemic. The face to face meetings may be replaced by virtual meetings as appropriate.

In partnership with the Standards Association Standards Board, the IEEE 802 EC leadership is continuing to finalize revisions to our policies to ensure that groups can continue to work and make decisions in a productive manner. The revisions are expected to be formally adopted in June 2020.

As we take these necessary steps during these challenging times, the EC appreciates your patience. I hope you and your families continue to be as well as possible in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Stay safe and be well.
