Re: [802SEC] IEEE-SA Policy and Procedures (P&P) Changes - January 2017 - Important - Please read


Actually, according to the SA P&P, the formal purpose of a PAR is to satisfy the public notice requirement. 
That is why the approval of PARs is reported to ANSI and published by them in their newsletter.
OTOH, I think that mechanism (while fulfilling legal requirements) doesn't work for generating the kind of participation we want.
Thus, I agree, we should issue press releases when we create a study group as a matter of policy.

Hello Pat and all,

One thing I think we should also give thought to is on issuing press releases related to study groups.   Some groups do this
routinely,  and others (including 802.11) hardly at all.   IMHO one of the purpose of study groups is to attract those with
an interest in the topic,  including from outside the existing WG.
Best Regards,

Adrian Stephens
