Subject: OASIS AMQP Member Section Steering Committee Nominations Now Open

OASIS members:

Five seats serving a one-year term on the OASIS Advanced Message Queuing
Protocol (AMQP) Member Section (MS) [1] Steering Committee are open for
nomination recommendations. Any AMQP MS participant may nominate or be
nominated as a candidate for the Steering Committee. Candidates employed by
organizations already represented on the AMQP MS [2] are not eligible. If
you aren't currently active in the AMQP Member Section [3], now is a great
time to join. The process to join is simple but it must be completed during
the nomination period. Send an email to member-services@oasis-open.org
stating your intent to join the AMQP MS.

The AMQP Member Section facilitates work relating to AMQP (an open
internet-scale infrastructure-level messaging protocol) through coordination
of the Technical Committee(s) affiliated with the Member Section and
associated adoption activities.

The nomination and election procedures for the  Steering Committee are
defined by the OASIS Member Section Policy [4] and the AMQP Member Section
Rules of Procedure [5].

Each AMQP MS Supporting Entity has one Qualified Elector who casts the
single vote on behalf of his/her organization. Unless otherwise designated,
the organization's Primary Representative serves as the Qualified Elector.
The Primary Representative may defer the voting member role to another
employee member by sending an email to member-services@oasis-open.org; any
such change should be in place before the ballot is cast.


Nominations will be held 12 August - 21 September 2011
The election will be held 23 September - 7 October 2011


 Any AMQP MS participant may nominate a candidate via email to:
 nominations@oasis-open.org; please state 'AMQP SC nomination' in the
subject line.

 Prior to being confirmed as a candidate, each nominee must:

1. Accept the nomination

2. Confirm his/her ability to meet the time commitments of the position
(participation in a one hour teleconference each week, promote the work of
the Member Section, additional outreach activities as needed);

3. Provide background information and a position statement describing
his/her qualifications and motivations for serving on the Steering
Committee; and

4. Be a participant in the AMQP Member Section.


The five new Steering Committee members will be selected by the MS
Qualified Electors, using the Single Transferable Voting (STV) process -
Scottish  Method [6]. STV considers each voter's ranked preference for
candidates, in order to more accurately reflect the wishes of the
electorate. Results will be announced immediately after they are  tabulated
and confirmed.

We encourage all AMQP MS participants to consider serving on the  Steering
Committee. Please contact (member-services@oasis-open.org) with any
questions you might have regarding this process.
