stds-802-16: invitation to join 802.16 Sponsor Ballot Pool
I'd like to remind you about the IEEE Sponsor Ballot process and
invite you to enroll as a member of 802.16's Sponsor Ballot Pool. You
need to act by January 8 if you wish to participate in Sponsor Ballot
of the TG2 draft.
After a draft standard emerges from a Working Group, it must still go
through a "Sponsor Ballot" before it can be approved by the IEEE
Standards Association (IEEE-SA). The voters in the Sponsor Ballot are
the members of the Balloting Group.
To form the Balloting Group, IEEE-SA first forms Balloting Pools of
people who are interested in participating in Balloting Groups in
certain technical areas. Then, when a relevant draft is nearly
completion, IEEE-SA invites (by paper mail) members of relevant
Balloting Pools to join the Balloting Group for that draft.
A list of 802.16 Ballot Pool Members (as of 2 November) is available
There is no fee or membership requirement to join a Balloting Pool.
You simply join using the on-line form:
If you are not an IEEE Member, just ignore the box requesting your
IEEE Membership Number.
However, in order to actually participate in the Balloting Group, you
must be a Member of the IEEE-SA, or pay a Balloting Fee.
With the progress of the TG2 draft, we now expect that document to go
to IEEE Sponsor Ballot in mid-February; the TG1 draft should follow
later in the spring.
If you would like to receive an invitation to join the Ballot Group
for any 802.16 draft, you should use the form to join the Ballot
Pool, specifying your interest in 802.16.
If you are not an IEEE-SA member, you should learn about IEEE-SA
