Any AMQP MS participant may make nominations to the Steering Committee.

If you aren't currently active in the AMQP Member Section [2], now is a
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.


Nominations will be held 24 August - 14 September 2012
The election will be held 17 September - 1 October 2012

Both the Nomination and Election periods may be extended in order to afford
the broadest participation on the process.  The details may be found in
Section 5.5 of the Member Section Policy [3].


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 an AMQP Member Section Member.

If sufficient candidates are not identified by the nominations closing date,
the nomination period will be extended by two weeks.


The eight new Steering Committee members will be selected by the MS
Qualified Electors, in a closed ballot. The ballot tabulation process and
quorum requirements are detailed in Section 5.5 of the Member Section Policy
[3]. Results will be announced immediately after they are tabulated and
confirmed. 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.

The nomination and election procedures for the Steering Committee are
defined by the OASIS Member Section Policy [3] and the AMQP Member Section
Rules of Procedure [4].

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.
