Subject: Future of the eGovernment Member Section


There have been a lot of discussions going on over the last few months about the future of the eGov Member Section and views on the best way forward have been changing as these discussions have progressed.  Following the latest round of discussions with the Board and OASIS Staff we have concluded that closing the Member Section is not the best way forward and hence your Steering Committee changed its mind and voted against this in the ballot Scott announced below.  At our Committee meeting this week we have agreed to continue, consult all members on the future direction and then develop a new work programme.  If necessary we will seek to re-charter the Member Section.

Following this decision it will be necessary to hold elections for a number of seats on the Steering Committee because the current incumbents have completed their two year terms. A call for nominations will be made shortly and I would urge everyone to consider putting their names forward please.

I apologise on behalf of the Steering Committee for all the confusion on this issue and for the delay in finding the right way forward.  If anyone wishes to raise any questions over any of this please get in touch, either directly to me or via the mailing list.
