The following is from Debbie at INCITS regarding Emeritus members.

I'll put this on the agenda for 182, along with an item to consider
liaison with WG 2.5 and/or 754r.

I have attached the RD-2 procedures for Emeritus Members, please read
this information as there are several criteria in order for an
individual to be nominated.

Since the TC action to nominate an emeritus member is not listed in TC
the voting table, this TC action can be approved a simple majority vote
and recorded in the TC minutes.

Also, the TC action to approve a liaison with an outside group is not
listed in the TC voting table, this TC action can be approved a simple
majority vote and recorded in the TC minutes.

Also, please make sure these items are listed on the J3 2-week meeting
agenda for action.

Attachment Emeritus Members

The Emeritus membership category rewards individuals for their extensive
contribution to standards activities and allows INCITS to call on their
vast history and talent for continuity following their retirement.

INCITS TC, TG or SG for a minimum of 10 years, and shall have made
significant contributions to standards efforts. They must no longer be a
representative of a dues-paying member of the committee.

A nomination for appointment as an Emeritus Member shall be made either
by motion of the sponsoring subgroup or the Secretariat. The
recommendation may be proposed once the individual meets the above

made by the individual. Such recommendations shall be forwarded to the
INCITS Executive Board, which shall consider approval in a regularly

All Emeritus memberships are non-voting, non-dues-paying membership
established in relation to a specific TC, TG or SG. Emeritus Members may
attend meetings, speak, and submit contributions as an individual
subject matter expert. Emeritus members may receive all electronically
available subgroup documents, including meeting notices, draft agendas
and minutes; other documents are not required to be distributed to
Emeritus Members. Emeritus Members shall not have the right to hold any
office in INCITS or to participate in Executive Board activities
(including its subsidiary boards). Individuals appointed as Emeritus
Member shall continue to hold their Emeritus membership as long as all
requirements noted above are met, and as approved by the Executive
Board; an Emeritus Member may resign their position as described in
Section 4.2.5, Resignation of Membership.

Emeritus Members shall not count in any calculations for quorum or
subgroup voting. A subgroup's membership roster shall identify Emeritus
Members. Each subgroup Chairman shall list all Emeritus Members as a
part of the subgroup's Annual Report.
