Announcement & Agenda


OASIS LegalXML- Legislative 1-day Face-To-Face Workshop

September 7, 2004 – WYNDHAM Hotel – Burlington, Vermont

Collocated with National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) –

National Association of Legislative Information Technology (NALIT)

& Legal Services Staff Section Professional Development Seminars


OASIS LegalXML invites you to join the current members of the Legislative Documents Technical Committee for the first in a series of periodic face-to-face working sessions. This meeting is open to all Originators, Distributors and Consumers of Legislative and Regulatory Information!


In this first workshop, we will identify the various needs for Data Standards in the Legislative and Regulatory Community and prioritize our work in addressing those needs, with the following specific objectives:

  • refine the goals of the Technical Committee
  • define a roadmap of committee deliverables
  • begin & set the next steps for getting to our first destination


In this upcoming session, we will be expanding our outreach to the community in an interactive participatory workshop. The workshop will target incorporating the diverse needs and objectives from the various constituents in the legislative and regulatory continuum into the Technical Committee's goals and prioritizing the work of the technical committee in accordance with the goals and the specific near term needs of these constituents.

The format of the workshop is designed to engage all the participants in both in the identification and prioritization of this effort and to expose potential members to one of the more effective workshop methods used in the XML Standards Community.

In order to foster rapid and effective implementation and adoption, standards must recognize and account for the diverse viewpoints in its conceptualization and design. Once goals and requirements are accounted for, prioritization and planning can be done effectively. Please join us in giving this effort a solid start.
