Subject: OASIS IDtrust Member Section Steering Committee Nominations Now Open

OASIS members:

 Three 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
 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 July - 1 August 2011

 The election will be held 2 August - 16 August 2011


 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
 tabulated and confirmed.

 We encourage all IDtrust 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.
