Subject: OASIS Telecom Member Section Steering Committee 'Special Election' Schedule

OASIS Telecom Member Section Members,
One seat on the OASIS Telecom Member Section Steering Committee (SC) is
now open for nomination and election. The current SC consists of six
members and does not comply with the Rules of Procedure, 'The SC shall
consist of seven members,' http://www.oasis-telecom.org/RoP, therefore, a
Special Election will be held.   

The Member Section will nominate and elect 'one' Steering Committee Member
to serve a 'one' year term.

The nomination and election procedures for the Steering Committee members is
defined by the OASIS Member Section Policy [1] and the Telecom Member
Section Rules of Procedure [2]. Any Telecom participant may nominate or
be nominated as a candidate for the Steering Committee. (Any OASIS member
may join the Telecom MS at no additional cost [3].) 

Each Telecom 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. 

***Please note, if you are the Primary Representative for your organization
and unable to vote during the designated time period, please 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 open 31-July-2008 through 14-August-2008. 

The election will be held 14-August-2008 through 28-August-2008. 


Any Telecom MS participant may nominate a candidate via email to:

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 teleconference bi-monthly, additional support
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 Telecom Member Section. 


The 'one' new Steering Committee members will be selected by the Telecom
Qualified Electors, using the Single Transferable Voting (STV) process -
Scottish  Method [4]. 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 Telecom 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.
