Dear EC members,

This is a 10 day SEC email ballot to make a determination by EC motion to
approve the attached Press Release.  Please note I have placed a modifier
on the closing time of the ballot  such that it may close no later than 10
days after the start of the email ballot or as soon 24 hours after every
member of the EC casts a definitive ballot (APP, DIS or ABS).  The reason
for the modifier is to allow the press release, if it is approved, to be
issued as quickly as possible.

The LMSC executive committee approves of the attached press release on the
ratification of the IEEE 802.3ak Type 10GBASE-CX4 ammendment by the
Standards Board.

Moved by :        Bob Grow
Seconded by:    Roger Marks

The email ballot opens on Wednesday February 11 2004 3PM EST and closes the
of  February 21 3PM EST or 24 hours after every member of the EC has cast a
ballot, whichever comes

Please direct your responses to the EC reflector with a CC directly to me

Chairman, IEEE 802 LMSC
