3. TF Update:

- John Rhoads indicated updating the TF volume 2 is progressing. With CPs accepted by ballot this will go forward without further ballot. John noted that most changes are not technically substantial.
- Ken noted that the only change is an updated table, removing WCM as a profile. Volume 1 is ready and will be submitted along with volume 2.
- Paul noted that WCM will be adopted by Continua for LAN communication.

4. ADQ, POI Public Comment Update:

- John Rhoads noted the public comment period is open until the 14th. There is a question regarding how best to document the responses – where to place the record. John will locate the URL, likely a Google Doc.

5. Co-chair elections:

- John Rhoads invited additional volunteers.
- John Garguilo will serve another term if elected and Monroe has volunteered to run for the PC co-chair.

6. October F2F:

- Co-chairs selected the hotel in Boca Raton, Manny to make arrangements with the hotel.

6. Standards Coordination:

- John Garguilo will participate in IEEE’s announcement that the nomenclature used in the RTMMS will be publically available.
- Ken noted that there’s an effort to coordinate with IEEE 802 WG. The concern is that this same WG is working on PAN, Bluetooth, Zigbee for wireless. The concern is to make sure the PCD documents permit flexibility.

7. Action Item Review:

- Deferred.

8. Next and Recent Meetings:

- The PC has suggested reducing the number of meetings, moving to one a month except when business requires more (e.g., when developing the profile proposals). John Rhoads noted that this is more than most committees meet.
- The TC will meet the week before and the week after the PC.

9. Announcements and other business:

- John Garguilo asked about PCIM. John Rhoads responded that we may have some trial testing not a part of the Connectathon.



- Manny to publicize the change in PC, TC meeting schedule.
