|Same for me - participating in the OGC Technical Committee meeting this week in Dublin.|
Incidentally, I have a conflict today and will not be able to attend the meeting. Please accept my regrets. Ah, good points. Thanks, David. I rescind my request to move to Observer. I will continue as a Member (as I’m certain I have lost my Voting Member status already due to attendance).
Scott, I am not an officer of this ARIP TC but I have experience with roster management in other OASIS TCs, so I hope that the ARIP officers don't mind if I take this ;-)
By not attending meetings (two in a row) you will automatically switch from a Voting Member to Member.
And when you start attending again, you will get your voting rights back by attending two times in a row.
Another thing that you can do is to ask for a Leave of Absence which is being automatically granted once in any rolling 12 months. The roster manager will need to mark you as on Leave of Absence. The leave of absence lasts until you have taken part in a meeting or taken part in a vote.
The advantage of LOA is that your Voting status is not affected during your LOA and you are automatically back with your voting rights when you decide that your LOA is over.
I would advise against switching to Observer. The only way how to do it is to leave the TC as a (Voting) Member and enter again as an Observer.
As Observer you are in "read only" mode, you are not allowed to make any contributions, because your organization is not bound with the TC IPR mode while you are an Observer.
When you decide to join again as a Member, you'd need to leave again as Observer and join again as Member, this new joining would again require approval of your Primary Representative. Again you'd need to attend two meetings in a row to become a Voting Member again.

Regretfully my meeting conflicts and current workload prevent me from being an active contributor to the ARIP TC. As time and duties permit, I will certainly attend meetings and contribute.
At this time, I request to be switched to Observer status.
