New name, branding plan, a interoperability testing status, and N+I Tokyo were the highlights. Jim Meyer presented a brief introduction to WiMedia, an industry organization to promote certain based products. Discussed Marketing Communication procedures with IEEE staff. This led to discussion of how to better communicate with trade press and industry analysts. Consensus is that a conference call following each /.15 session would be highly beneficial. This will be proposed to the.11/.15 WG Chairs. Key to better external communications is getting accurate and timely summary reports from TG Chairs. Remainder of meeting was spent generating a list of questions the TG Chairs should try to answer in their Closing summary reports. At the IEEE /.15 interim session in September the PC plans to prepare for and coordinate the first Trade Press/Analyst Briefing Conference Call.
