Subject: Reconfirming the TC charter and reappointing chairs as required by revised policies

Hi all,


As you probably already know, the latest revisions to the TC Process and the OASIS Committee Operations Process include new requirements to periodically confirm each of the OASIS TC charter and appoint or reappoint the TCâs chair(s). Please refer to: https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/members/202011/msg00011.html


Reconfirming our Charter



Section 1.10 TC Vitality of the TC Process (https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/tc-process-2017-05-26/#tcVitality) states:


"... every 4 years from the date of the first meeting of the TC or the first meeting after a recharter, the TC must decide one on the following actions by Full Majority vote:

- Continue the TC with its current charter;

- Continue the TC through a charter clarification (Section 1.8);

- Recharter the TC (Section 1.9); or

- Close the TC."


The purpose of section 1.10 is to "ensure the TC charter continues to align with the activities of the TC." Basically, it is an effort to encourage TCs to periodically consider whether the charter still reflects the work actually being done.


I am including this in the agenda of our next TC monthly meeting on March 31, 2020 at 1pm EDT.


The key sections of the charter to review are the statement of purpose, the scope of work, and the deliverables. Note that the IPR Mode cannot be changed so it does not need to be reviewed.


Note that the revisions to the TC Process allow you to run an electronic ballot using the TC's balloting facility during the meeting. You may open and close the electronic ballot during the meeting. A ballot opened as part of a meeting is not required to remain open for 7 days.


Reappointing the TC Chair(s)



Sect. 1.4 Chairs of the OASIS Committee Operations Process (https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/oasis-committee-operations-process/#chairs) states:


"Every two years a Committee must re-appoint its chair(s)."


The purpose of the new addition to section 1.4 is to allow committees to reconfirm the desire of the existing Chair(s) to continue in their role or to provide a graceful way for them to step back and allow other members to take on the role.


I am happy and honored to be considered to continue as chair. However, we have a good opportunity for anyone on the TC to become a co-chair and/or elect a new chair.


Please send an email to the TC  (csaf@lists.oasis-open.org) if you are interested and would like to be nominated as a TC chair candidate.


Note that Committee Chairs are elected by Full Majority Vote. (See definition at https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/oasis-defined-terms-2018-05-22#dFullMajority).  


Thank you!
