Subject: Emergency Management TC IPR Transition Ballot

To: Those OASIS member voting representatives and individual members who are
voting "TC Qualified Members" for the Emergency Management TC
   As you probably know, OASIS adopted revisions to our IPR Policy effective on
15 April 2005.[1] TCs formed before that date continue to operate under the old
("legacy") policy. However, they may convert to the new policy by making a
"transition" under the terms of the OASIS IPR Transition Policy [2], by the
specific voting procedure described in the transition policy.
   The OASIS Emergency Management TC has notified OASIS staff that it
successfully conducted a Transition Request vote under the IPR Transition
Policy, to select the "RF/RAND" IPR Mode. Accordingly, I am opening a Transition
Approval Ballot, in which the primary representatives of all voting members of
the committee may cast a ballot. A list of the current TC voting members, as of
the date of the Transition Request, is attached. In this ballot, which will run
for 14 days, the TC Qualified Members [3] each may cast only a single vote. The
ballot will allow for YES, NO, or ABSTAIN votes. Approval of a Transition
Approval Ballot requires:
   (i) a minimum of 50% of all TC Qualified Members to vote,
   (ii) no NO votes cast, and
   (iii) one or more YES votes.
   The ballot has opened and can be seen at [4]. Please note, for organizational
members, it is the primary OASIS representative who votes, so if you are not a
TC member, you may wish to consult your organization's active TC members
regarding this vote.
   We will notify the Emergency Management TC list and the voting "TC Qualified
Members" of the results.

   In the transition policy, the "TC Qualified Members" who may vote in this
ballot are defined as: "either a TC Individual Voting Member or an OASIS
Organizational Member that has at least one voting member in the TC at the time
