Subject: OASIS IDtrust Member Section Steering Committee Nominations Extended to 30 July 2010!

OASIS members:


 Two seats serving two-year terms on the OASIS Identity and Trusted

 Infrastructure (IDtrust) Member Section (MS) Steering Committee [1] are

 open for nomination recommendations. Any IDtrust MS participant may

 nominate or be nominated as a candidate for the Steering Committee.  If

 you aren't currently active in the IDtrust Member Section, now is a

 great time to join [2]. The process to join is simple but it must be

 completed during the nomination period.


 The IDtrust Steering Committee provides guidance to help the Member

 Section achieve its goal of promoting greater understanding and

 adoption of standards-based identity and trusted infrastructure technologies,

 policies, and practices. The nomination and election procedures for the

 Steering Committee are defined by the OASIS Member Section Policy [3]

 and the IDtrust Member Section Rules of Procedure [4].


 Each IDtrust 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 held 11 June - 30 July 2010.


 The election will be held 2 August- 17 August 2010.





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




 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

 (participation in a one hour teleconference each month, promote the

 work of the Member Section, additional outreach activities as needed);


 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 IDtrust Member Section.





 The two new Steering Committee members will be selected by the 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. Results will be announced immediately after they are


 and confirmed.


 We encourage all IDtrust MS participants to consider serving on the

 Steering Committee. Please contact (member-services@oasis-open.org)


 any questions you might have regarding this process.
