Subject: Election for OASIS Board of Directors: What are folks thinking?

The deadline to cast votes is next week, 29 June

I'd be very interested in hearing what candidates other DITA TC members would support.

You can find information about the candidates here:

Consider reading the candidates' profiles and communicating your preferences with the voting member for your company.

Here are the voting members for the companies that are represented on the DITA TC (or have regularly attending folks):

Bluestream: Jim Tivy
Comtech: JoAnn Hackos
Eberlein Consulting LLC: Kris Eberlein
IBM: Dave Ings
IXIASOFT: Keith Schengli-Roberts
Just Systems: Tom Magliery
Oberon Technologies: Tim Allen
PTC: Dave Helfinstine

If you are not the voting member of the TC, there is a link at above URL that will tell you who your company rep is.

It's interesting to read the platforms for the various candidates. They include such items as:
  • Provide valuable continuity to the Board at a time of considerable change.
  • Making the TC process more agile and iterative, while still assuring quality
  • Improving OASIS tooling and increasing geographic diversity of membership
  • Promoting women in the digital world
  • Launching the new OASIS Open Repository program - the forthcoming capability to develop an OASIS standard alongside an affiliated open source project
  • Driving specification development and open source implementation projects in tandem
  • Extend the work of the OASIS Privacy Management Reference Model (PMRM) to include children's privacy and delegated consent
  • Represent the needs of IT startups as well as enterprise and government customers
