Subject: Reminder Re: OASIS CGM Open Steering Committee Election

OASIS CGM Open Member Section Members,

If you haven't already done so, please take a minute to vote on the Steering Committee ballot. 

It's simple this year, as there are two candidates for two seats (1 yr. and 2 yr.), and you have two votes (priority ranked).  Still, we value your participation, and it determines who gets which seat -- please vote.

See 4th-from-end paragraph, below, for email voting instructions.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

-Lofton Henderson
CGMO Program Director

========== original election announcement ==========

The election process to select 'two' CGM Open Member Section Steering Committee Members is now open. One seat will serve a one year term due to a vacancy, and the other seat will serve the customary two year term. The nominee receiving the most votes will serve a two-year term on the StC and the second nominee will serve a one year term.
The nomination and election procedures for the CGM Open Steering Committee are defined collectively by two documents, the OASIS Member Section Policy [1] and the CGM Open Member Section Rules of Procedure (RoP) [2].

[1] http://www.oasis-open.org/who/ms_policy.php
[2] http://www.cgmopen.org/governance/rop.php

Each CGM Open Supporting Entity has one Qualified Elector who casts the single vote on behalf of his/her organization. A CGM Open Member Section Qualified Elector is a single Eligible Person who is an employee or designee of an organizational Member Section Supporting Entity, and who is a Member of that Member Section.


The election will be held from 23-December-2011 through 14-January-2011.


The CGM Open Steering Committee Candidates are Dieter Weidenbrueck and Stuart Galt of Boeing.

The candidate bios can be found at:

http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/cgmopen-ms/documents.php .

The two new Steering Committee members will be selected by the MS Qualified Electors, using the Single Transferable Voting (STV) process -- Scottish Method, http://www.stv.govt.nz/stv/how.htm .  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.

Cast your vote by email to sc-election@oasis-open.org -- please specify "CGM Open StC election" in your email's "Subject". Your message should contain your ranked preference for two of the candidates. Start with 1, your first priority choice, and continue with 2, your second priority choice.

1. First Choice Candidate name
2. Second Choice Candidate name

Your candidates, listed alphabetically, are Stuart Galt of Boeing and Dieter Weidenbrueck.

Questions about the mission and responsibilities of the CGM Open Member Section and its Steering Committee can be directed to cgmopen-sc@lists.oasis-open.org.

Best regards,
Lofton Henderson
CGM Open Program Director
