>> Ah, those pesky technical details...
>> I am now an alternate to Kernelyze, whose principal is Tom Knox. Tom joined
>> J3 and attended his first meeting last October. Neither Tom nor I attended
>> the February meeting, and INCITS rules require that a new member is
>> "provisional" until they have attended two meetings. Only full members can
>> volunteer for the convenor position. INCITS set the deadline for applications
>> as June 5, but the next meeting isn't until June 26.
>> No problem! We'll just hold an impromptu telephone meeting in advance,
>> which Tom can attend, and then we'll be all set. Right? Um, not so fast...
>> INCITS rules require four week advance notice for such meetings.
>> As of June 1, that changes to two weeks, but neither one helps. So that idea
>> is right out.
>> Jennifer Garner of INCITS tells me that if nobody from J3 (PL22.3 in
>> INCITS-speak) volunteers by June 5, she'll put out a second call with a due
>> date of sometime in July. Simply attending a meeting isn't sufficient - INCITS
>> has to receive and process the minutes of the meeting, listing attendees,
>> before the status can change.
>> The plan now is to let the first call expire, we'll hold the regular meeting in
>> Garching (Tom and I will both be there), and then I'll encourage/bribe Lorri
>> to be prompt at sending in the minutes sufficiently in advance of the second
>> call deadline to get the status changed. Then and only then am I allowed to
>> volunteer!
>> Isn't this fun?
>> Steve
