stds-802-16: 802.15 Sponsor Ballot Pool

This email is being sent to solicit your interest in joining the 
802.15 Sponsor Ballot pool. 802.15 is currently working on a draft 
standard based on the Bluetooth specification.

For those of you who are not familiar with the IEEE Standards 
process,  once a draft standard has been approved by the Working 
Group,  it is forwarded to the 802 Executive Committee for approval 
and to begin the Sponsor Ballot process.  The participants in the 
Sponsor Ballot are invited to join from people who are members of the 
Sponsor Ballot pool. The goal is to achieve a Sponsor Ballot Group 
which is a balanced representation of people having interest in 
Wireless Personal Area Networks and allow this group the ability to 
continue to ballot on the technical validity of the proposed 
standard-post working group.  In order to be eligible to participate 
in the Sponsor Ballot, you must become a member of the Sponsor Ballot 
pool.  The form to join can be found at 
http://standards.ieee.org/db/balloting/ballotform.html .  Be sure to
