Subject: CGM Open StC election announcement

OASIS CGM Open Member Section --

The CGM Open (CGMO) Member Section (MS) is currently seeking to fill two seats on the Steering Committee (StC). One seat will serve a one year term due to a vacancy, and the other seat will serve the customary two year term. The CGMO Member Section Steering Committee consists of three seats, two of which are elected and third of which is allocated to the CGMO Program Director. 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 CGMO 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].

By joining the CGMO Member Section, a portion of your dues is allocated to the CGMO MS budget as described in [1] and [2].
