Any OSLC MS participant may make nominations to the Steering Committee. However, only Member Section Members may be a candidate and nominees employed by organizations already represented on the OSLC Steering Committee are not eligible.

If you aren't currently active in the OSLC Member Section [2], now is a great time to join. The

Steering Committee. Please contact (member-services@oasis-open.org)
