Subject: eGov Member Section Steering Committee Nominations and Election Process Now Open

OASIS members:

Five seats serving two-year terms each on the OASIS eGovernment (eGov)
Member Section (MS) [1] Steering Committee are open for nomination. Three
seats are to be filled by current or past employees of governmental or
public administration entities that are OASIS AGA members and two seats will
be filled by any member of the Member Section. 

The OASIS eGovernment Member Section (eGov MS) serves as a focal point for
discussions of governmental and public administration requirements for
e-business standardization. Bringing together representatives from global,
regional, national and local government agencies, the eGov MS provides a
platform for those who share a common interest in directing and
understanding the impact of open standards on the public sector.

Any eGov MS participant may make nominations to the Steering Committee. If
you aren't currently active in the eGov Member Section [2], now is a great
time to join. The process to join is simple but it must be completed during
the nomination period. Send an email to member-services@oasis-open.org
stating your intent to join the eGov MS.


Nominations will be held 7 March - 21 March 2013. 

The election will be held 22 March - 5 April 2013.

Both the Nomination and Election periods may be extended in order to afford
the broadest participation on the process.  The details may be found in
Section 5.5 of the Member Section Policy [3].


Any eGov MS participant may nominate a candidate via email to:
nominations@oasis-open.org; please state eGov SC nomination in the subject

 Prior to being confirmed as a candidate, each nominee must:

1. Accept the nomination

2. Confirm his/her ability to meet the time commitments of the position:

~ Participate in 2-3 hours per month in meetings 
~ Prepare and review related document
~ Participate actively in marketing and outreach for the eGov MS 
~ Represent the Member Section at relevant meetings and events 

3. Provide background information and a position statement describing
his/her qualifications and motivations for serving on the Steering
Committee; and

4. Be an eGov Member Section Member.

If sufficient candidates are not identified by the nominations closing date,
the nomination period will be extended by two weeks.


The five new Steering Committee members will be selected by the MS Qualified
Electors, in a closed ballot. The ballot tabulation process and quorum
requirements are detailed in Section 5.5 of the Member Section Policy [3].
Results will be announced immediately after they are tabulated and
confirmed. Each eGov MS Supporting Entity has one Qualified Elector who
casts the single vote on behalf of his/her organization.

Unless otherwise designated, the organization's Primary Representative
serves as the Qualified Elector. The Primary Representative may defer the
voting member role to another employee member by sending an email to:
member-services@oasis-open.org; any such change should be in place before
the ballot is cast.

The nomination and election procedures for the Steering Committee are
defined by the OASIS Member Section Policy [3] and the eGov Member Section
Rules of Procedure [4].

We encourage all eGov MS participants to consider serving on the Steering
Committee. Please contact (member-services@oasis-open.org) with any
questions you might have regarding this process.
