RE: stds-802-16: Election of 802.16 Chair, and Chair's Appointments

[Notice: It is the policy of 802.16 to treat messages posted here as non-confidential.]


802.16 should a consider a co-vice-chair position.  802.11 has a co-vice chair
position to help out with the plenary sessions, and to assist the chair in the
event that either the vice-chair or secretary is absent or cannot attend the
entire session.  In addition, each of the chair positions for 802.11 must have
their company sponsor them in this capacity.  For example 802.11 requires each
officer, to file a signed letter to 802.11 from their employer (sponsor)
,stating that this position requires their employee, in this capacity, to attend
>75%  of the sessions and cover the travel expenses interim and plenary
meetings. This is make sure that the working group's officers are committed to
the process and their employers understand their commitment.  

- Al Petrick 802.11 Vice-Chair

	According to 802 rules:

	"LMSC Working Group Chairs and Vice Chairs shall be elected by the
Working Group and confirmed by the LMSC Executive Committee. Terms shall end at
the end of the first Plenary session of the next even numbered year."

	"Initial appointments, and temporary appointments to fill vacancies due
to resignations or removals for cause, may be made by the Chair of the LMSC, and
shall be valid until the end of the next Plenary session."

	In other words, I am the 802.16 Chair through the end of next week's
Plenary session, scheduled to end at noon on Friday with the conclusion of the
802 Closing Plenary. 

	Before we adjourn next Thursday, we need to elect a Chair to serve from
noon on July 9 through noon on March 10, 2000.

	I will schedule an election to be held during our Closing Plenary. Since
I will be a candidate for election, I will turn the floor over to the 802.16
Secretary (Scott Marin, <mailto:smarin@boschtelecominc.com>) to conduct it. If
you intend to run, please notify Mr. Marin no later than Tuesday; this
information will aid in scheduling the Closing Plenary.

	Also, I remind your that "the Working Group Chair has the authority to
assign/unassign subtasks and task leaders or executors, e.g. secretary, subgroup
chair, etc." I will leave it to the newly-elected Chair to make such
appointments and will schedule a period on the agenda for this topic after the
election. I encourage you all to volunteer yourself for a position. I encourage
those interested in the 802.16 Chairmanship or in any appointed position to
attend the 802.16 Leadership Meeting (Monday, July 5, 3-6 pm, in the Duluth
Room). If you cannot attend, I would still be pleased to hear of your interest.

	   *802.16 Vice Chair
	   *802.16 Secretary
	   *Liaison, ETSI BRAN
