This works for us...

Subject: [office] TC meeting times during Daylight Savings Time transition

It is that time of the year again.  The US and Europe differ on when to 
change to DST.  And China and South Africa do not change at all. 

(I'm not sure of Brazil.  I think you subtract an hour rather than add 
one, right?  On what date do you change?)

In any case, we currently meet each Monday at the following time:

1500 UTC

0700 Seattle
1000 New York
1200 Sao Paulo
1600 Paris/Hamburg
2300 Beijing

On March 8th, the clocks are set ahead 1 hour in the United States.  In 
the past we have changed the meeting time so the time remains constant in 
the US, but moves 1 hour earlier for the rest of the world.

So starting with the TC meeting of March 9th the meeting time would be:

1400 UTC

0700 Seattle
1000 New York
1100 Sao Paulo
1500 Paris/Hamburg
2200 Beijing

Europe then changes their clocks on the last Sunday in March, so we would 
adjust the meeting time once more, keeping the US times constant, starting 
on April 6th:

1400 GMT

0700 Seattle
1000 New York
1100 Sao Paulo
1600 Paris/Hamburg
2200 Beijing

I assume that members in the US, whose meeting time does not change 
through this process, will have no objections, since nothing changes for 
them.  Beijing should be happy, since the meeting doesn't go until 
midnight now.  But what about the others?  Will this change be a problem 
for anyone?

Please raise any concerns on the list.  We can briefly discuss this on 
next week's call.
