Subject: Nominations are open for the OASIS Blue Member Section Steering Committee

OASIS Members,

Two seats on the OASIS Blue Member Section (MS) Steering Committee [1] are
open for nominations. One seat will be held for two years, one for one year.
All Blue MS participants are invited to nominate qualified candidates and/or
serve on the Steering Committee. If you aren't currently active in the Blue
Member Section, now is a great time to join.

The OASIS Blue Member Section advances open standards for smart energy grids
and intelligent buildings. OASIS Blue is committed to leveraging the
innovation and advances of eCommerce standards and the power of the Internet
to achieve meaningful sustainability.

The nomination and election procedures for the Steering Committee are
defined by the OASIS Member Section Policy [2] and the Blue Member Section
Rules of Procedure [3].

Any Blue MS participant [4] may nominate or be nominated as a candidate for
the Steering Committee. Any OASIS member may join the Blue MS [5]. The
process to join is simple but it must be completed during the nomination

Each Blue 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 Rep 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.


Nominations will be accepted 6 - 30 November 2009.

The election will be held 2 - 18 December 2009.


Any Blue MS participant may nominate a candidate via email to:

Prior to being confirmed as a candidate, each nominee must:
1. Accept the nomination by email to nominations@oasis-open.org 2. Confirm
his/her ability to meet the time commitments of the position (participation
in a two-hour teleconference each month, promote the work of the Member
Section); 3. **Provide background information and a position statement
describing his/her qualifications and motivations for serving on the
Steering Committee; and 4. Be a participant in the Blue Member Section.


The two new Steering Committee members will be selected by the Blue MS
Qualified Electors, using the Single Transferable Voting (STV) process -
Scottish  Method [6]. STV considers each voter's ranked preference for
candidates, in order to more accurately reflect the wishes of the
electorate. The candidate receiving the highest preference will win the two
year seat.  The candidate with the highest preference, with the two year
winner removed from consideration, will win the one year seat.   Blue MS
Qualified Electors will be sent detailed voting instructions separately.

Results will be announced immediately after they are tabulated and

We encourage all Blue 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.

Thanks for your participation in this process.  Please feel welcome to ask
any questions.
