Re: [802SEC] +++10 Day EC Email Ballot+++Geneva Site Visit Authorization
So, it's my understanding that a repeated network services site visit would be covered neither by this motion nor by the network services contract. Therefore, it would require an additional EC approval.
With that understanding, I vote Approve.

>> •IEEE 802 July 2013 Plenary Session – Geneva, Switzerland
>> •Why Face To Face Events should conduct a site inspection to Geneva?
>> •A properly conducted site inspection is a significant factor in ensuring a successful session. In particular when planning an event in a venue and location not previously used by the IEEE 802, the site inspection will accurately highlight both the positive and the negative aspects of a selected location that cannot be quantified by reviewing a facility's sales literature or meeting contracts alone.
>> •Traveling to Geneva and meeting with the local ITU/CCIG/CCV representatives, will provide Face to Face Events the opportunity to evaluate all of the ITU/CICG/CCV facilities and services. The site inspection would include all the meeting space, meeting room layouts, network capabilities, AV/power requirements, F&B specifications, security, staffing( including special name badges coordination) , shipment arrangements and any other session considerations, including pricing and billing procedures.
>> •By conducting meetings with facility representatives face to face we will be able to develop relationships that will be beneficial during final contract negotiations and onsite logistics as well as pinpoint potential problems and resolve them well ahead of the session, saving time and money.
>> •Our site inspection experience and expertise act as invaluable tool in planning all aspects of the July 2013 IEEE 802 Plenary Session, we appreciate your keen consideration of this matter.
