It's party time!

During the period of July to September 2015,  802.11 will be celebrating its 25th anniversary.  The first meeting of 802.11 was its study group in September 1990.  We are holding a celebration event at our July 2015 802.11 session in Waikoloa, Hawai'i,  and there will be a press campaign simultaneous with the September 2015 802.11 session in Bangkok.
