1 Background IEEE SA requested IEEE 802 to provide feedback on a Proposed Spectrum Position Statement. IEEE / RR-TAG reviewed the document and have suggested updates and comments. We did re-title it to Additional Spectrum Needed from Contiguous Allocated Spectrum. The revisions were approved in the RR_TAG: Vote: 15 Y / 1 N / 1 A The marked up document:

2 EC Motion Motion: Approve as 802 feedback on the proposed IEEE-SA Spectrum Position Statement and send to IEEE-Standards Association Strategic Planning Coordination Committee on or before 13 November 2017, granting the IEEE LMSC chair (or his delegate) editorial license. Moved by: Jay Holcomb Seconded by: Steve Shellhammer Discussion? Vote: ___Y / ___ N / ___ A

3 Further Background Why – to comply with the IEEE Bylaws I-311 on Public Policy Position Statements. See below.

4 IEEE Public Policy Position Statement Bylaw

5 IEEE Public Policy Objectives (Bylaws I-311)
IEEE’s Bylaws (Section I-311) outline the following objectives for conduct of public policy-related activities by the organization and its entities: IEEE and its organizational units will engage in coordinated public policy-related activities that advance its mission. IEEE’s public policy activities at all levels will be guided by such general principles and public policy position statements as have been approved by the IEEE Board of Directors. In conducting public policy-related activities, IEEE will be nonpartisan, will seek and respect diverse opinions, and will promote balanced, evidence-based viewpoints. IEEE will inform policy-makers, IEEE members, and the public of the benefits, risks, and social implications of technology and effective strategies for accelerating the development and widespread deployment of beneficial technologies.

6 IEEE Public Policy Objectives (Bylaws I-311)
IEEE will promote discussion of technology-related public policies, through such means as organizing fora and publishing public policy-related research, analysis, and opinion. IEEE will be an advocate for the organization, its members and communities, and the public, developing and communicating Public Policy Positions on matters related to technology within its fields of expertise and the needs of stakeholders; these policies may be local, national, regional, or global in nature. IEEE will establish and maintain programs that encourage member awareness and participation in public policy-related activities; this may include direct participation in the development of technology-related public policies through service in government agencies and technical advisory committees. As appropriate, IEEE will work with other organizations in the development and conduct of public policy-related programs. All official IEEE and IEEE Organizational Unit Position Statements and Policy Communications shall be freely available to members and to the public.

7 IEEE’s Global Public Policy Committee
IEEE’s Global Public Policy activities seek to leverage the knowledge and insights of our community to provide governments, NGOs, other public and private organizations, and the public-at-large with accurate information and recommendations to address technology-related public policy issues from a global perspective. A broader statement of purposes and guiding principles for IEEE global public activities is outlined in IEEE Bylaw I IEEE position statements are approved on behalf of our global membership by the IEEE Board of Directors. IEEE also empowers subordinate organizational units to issue public policy statements and communications within their geographic, technical or mission scope, as long as they are not inconsistent with IEEE approved policy positions. Oversight of the process is provided by the IEEE Global Public Policy Committee (GPPC), which serves in an advisory role to the IEEE President and Board of Directors. Its charter provides that the GPPC “shall encourage, assist, coordinate, and oversee public policy activities throughout IEEE with the goal of enhancing and sustaining IEEE’s reputation as a globally-relevant resource of high-quality, balanced and effective advice, information and advocacy on public policy issues within IEEE’s sphere of technical competence and professional interest.” Global Public Policy Committee (2017) Gordon W. Day, Chair; Paul Cunningham, David Alan Grier, Christopher James, Latif Ladid, Russell Lefevre, John McDonald, Chris Brantley (Staff)

8 IEEE SA OM 6.5 Position statements
As stated in the IEEE Policies, IEEE recognizes the need for public statements on topics within the scope and purposes of IEEE. The IEEE-SA BOG shall be the sole organizational unit to approve position statements representing the IEEE Standards Association. The BOG may request that another IEEE organizational unit (as defined in Section 15 of the IEEE Policies) offer a position statement on a standards matter. The rules in Section 15 of the IEEE Policies shall be followed in developing position statements. In addition, the BOG will accept for review and action any position statement presented to it by another body for issuance as an IEEE-SA position statement.

9 IEEE SA OM 6.5 Position statements
Any position statements representing the IEEE Standards Association shall be approved by either the IEEE-SA BOG or the IEEE-SA BOG ad-hoc council. The IEEE-SA President shall determine if usage of the IEEE-SA BOG ad-hoc council is warranted (see ). Oversight for the preparation of IEEE-SA position statements resides in the SPCC. The IEEE-SA BOG may call upon such expertise as may be required to draft a position statement. The Secretary of the IEEE-SA BOG shall forward any approved IEEE Standards Association position statements to the target recipient of the position statement and to appropriate organizational units within IEEE. A consolidated listing of all such position statements shall be maintained on the IEEE Standards website.

10 IEEE SA OM 5.6 (SPCC) Strategic Planning Coordination Committee
5.6 Strategic Planning Coordination Committee (SPCC) This committee shall -- Identify and evaluate matters of a strategic nature -- Report to the BOG the status of the strategic plan and other strategic issues -- Monitor the execution of the strategic plan -- Recommend revisions to the strategic plan -- Provide oversight of the preparation of IEEE-SA external position statements prior to BOG approval -- Ensure strong partnership between volunteers and professional staff -- Invite participation by subject matter experts as needed to address topics of interest This committee shall consist of the IEEE-SA President (BOG Chair) who will serve as Conveyor, the IEEE-SA Past President/IEEE-SA President Elect, the CAG Chair, the SASB Chair, and the IEEE-SA Managing Director; and will be supported by a staff liaison. BOG members who are not part of the SPCC may attend SPCC meetings as observers.

11 5.6.1 Strategic Planning Coordination Committee agenda
A preliminary agenda for each Strategic Planning Coordination Committee meeting shall be prepared and made available to Committee members and to the BOG prior to the start of the meeting. The agenda preparation should be a joint task between the IEEE-SA President and the IEEE-SA Managing Director, which includes the general coordination of the meetings. The general preparation and coordination should be done by staff under the Managing Director’s responsibility. The meeting structure and discussion in the meetings should be facilitated by the IEEE-SA President. It is also not required that the SPCC meetings align with existing IEEE-SA or IEEE Board meetings. The IEEE-SA President will function as the Conveyor of the SPCC, where they will serve as the link to the BOG, regarding both input (e.g., strategic questions posed at BOG level first) and output (recommendations from SPCC to be communicated to BOG). The Conveyor would receive appropriate staff liaison support.
