Re: [802SEC] 802 Chair/Tresurer response to SASB: 11 June 2015 SASB Resolution
Would it be possible to consider starting the EC meeting15 minutes early?
Then we could end on time (or even early maybe)

Dear EC members,
This weekend Clint and I worked on a response to the draft resolution and
sent to the SASB Chair and Treasurer for review and acceptance, it is the
[bracketed highlighted text] in the attached document. I will place
an item on the opening EC agenda for discussion of the issue at the
upcoming 802 plenary session. My preference is not to have an
executive session. However if one is required, I suggest we reserve the
last 15 minutes of the opening EC meeting for it, with the understanding
we may need to go a little past (later than 10:15) the 10AM scheduled
end-of-meeting time, depending on how quickly we make it through the
earlier agenda items.

This email is sent from the 802 Executive Committee email reflector. This

Dear EC members,
The SASB met this week and produced a resolution as shown below, on
the failure of the LMSC to provide its
financial reports in a timely manner. 802 EC members were
excluded from the meeting that approved this resolution,
although we (Paul, Clint, Steve, Jon, Andrew, â?¦) were present for some
of the discussion, up to the point where they
realized they should deem us conflicted.
I believe being cited by the SASB as failing in our duty warrants an
agenda item in the EC to discuss corrective actions,
and this item may need to be held in executive session. I
therefore ask for such an item to go on the agenda at some time
during the week.
The resolution is at:
IEEE-SA STANDARDS BOARD RESOLUTIONS
11 June 2015
The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) has failed in its duty as
a Sponsor to complete the 2014 LMSC annual financial report in a timely
manner. Therefore, the following corrective actions are approved by the
1. IEEE-SA staff is instructed to set up
requested departments in NetSuite and to keep the NetSuite database
unlocked until Wednesday, 17 June 2015.
2. The LMSC Chair and the LMSC Treasurer shall
complete the 2014 LMSC annual financial report and certify that the
reported financial data is materially correct on or before Wednesday, 17
June 2015. All audit material shall be made available to the auditors by
30 June 2015.
3. The LMSC Chair and the LMSC Treasurer are
instructed to provide a plan to meet the schedule shown in item 4. This
plan shall be submitted by 30 June 2015 and shall be acceptable to
IEEE-SA staff and IEEE-SA Treasurer.
4. After completing the 2014 LMSC financial
reporting as outlined in item 2 above, the 2015 LMSC financial data shall
be entered in NetSuite with the following timeline:
o For Q1 and Q2 2015, the financial data of LMSC shall
be submitted through NetSuite by 31 July 2015 and 31 August 2015
o For Q3 2015, the financial data of LMSC shall be
submitted through NetSuite by 15 November 2015;
o For Q4 2015, the financial data of LMSC shall be
submitted through NetSuite by 15 February 2016.
o Complete certified 2015 financial data for LMSC shall
be available in NetSuite no later than 15 February 2016.
5. If the SASB determines that the LMSC Chair and
the LMSC Treasurer have failed to satisfactorily execute their duties for
the 2014 and/or 2015 LMSC annual financial reporting per the schedule
outlined above, the SASB reserves the right to pursue any and all
additional actions that it deems necessary to bring the LMSC annual
financial reporting into compliance with its operating procedures. Such
actions may include removal of specific LMSC Officers and/or suspension
of all LMSC Sponsor activities (potentially including, but not limited
to, new and modified PAR approvals, Sponsor balloting, approval of
standards, meetings, etc.) as described in IEEE-SA Standards Board
Operations Manual 5.3.6.
