[802SEC] Fw: IEEE SA Standards Development Remote Meetings Platform offer

Dear EC Members,

Below is information regarding additional remote meeting platform access from the Standards Association.  

Regardless of this offer, which we should take advantage of as appropriate, I believe we should maintain the remote meeting platform licenses licenses we have budgeted and paid for through at least the next 12 months.

Subject: IEEE SA Standards Development Remote Meetings Platform - WebEx

03 April 2020


Due to the current pandemic, the IEEE SA is accelerating a change of our standards development communities remote meeting platform. Effective immediately, IEEE SA is offering WebEx accounts to its standards committees and working group officers.


We will continue to provide our current teleconference software, JoinMe, until contract termination on 03 May 2020. If you have regularly scheduled meetings, don’t worry: Meetings will be available until the end of the contract.


If you choose to use the IEEE SA-provided WebEx account prior to the JoinMe contract end date, you may do so, as it will not negatively affect your current JoinMe account. If you do, please remember to update your meeting invitations with the correct WebEx access information.


We would like to thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to your IEEE standards development efforts and, hopefully, this change in teleconference software will make remote participation more productive.


Implementation Details:


The IEEE SA shall provide accounts to any existing JoinMe user account that has been used within the last 12 months. Automated notices will be sent out by WebEx, so please be on the lookout for those.


If you do not receive a notice and still need a WebEx account for your working group please access the following link:


Once you have accessed the link, your request will be verified by IEEE staff and an account should be provided within 3 to 5 business days.


Note that verification includes ensuring that the requestor is an officer of a current IEEE SA working group or other related activity.


Details about WebEx:


The WebEx service that will be provided is similar to JoinMe. Accessing the WebEx service will be via International Toll and VoIP only.


WebEx Training Details:


The following website will take you directly to the training area for WebEx. If you have difficulty or would like a walk-through, please contact your IEEE SA Program Manager. If you are unsure of who that may be, please send an e-mail to the following address and an IEEE SA staff member will reach out to you as soon as possible:
