Subject: CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: At-Large Steering Committee Members
Dear OASIS LegalXML Member Section:
The Rules of Procedure for the OASIS LegalXML Member Section require that there be an annual election of at-large representatives to the Steering Committee. Those persons serve on that committee along with the representatives of the Member Section's respective technical committees. The election last year was held later than it should have been-it is preferable that the at-large representatives be seated in January.
Accordingly, nominations for three at-large OASIS LegalXML Member Section Steering Committee members are now open. Nominations will be closed at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday, December 5, 2005.
Do not assume that the person(s) you want to serve on the Steering Committee will be nominated by others! Self-nominations will also be accepted.
The Member Section Rules provide that the election is by "the set of all members of all OASIS LegalXML Technical Committees who are also OASIS LegalXML Member Section members (those who have requested OASIS LegalXML Member Section membership upon joining or renewing their OASIS membership) or employees of such members."
Nominations should be sent to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org by 10:00 a.m. Eastern time on Monday, December 5. A KAVI vote will be taken soon thereafter. The KAVI vote would be closed on Monday, December 19, 2005, at 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
PLEASE NOTE: If you REPLY to this email, your message will go to the entire Member Section mailing list. Send your nomination message to email@example.com unless you want everyone to see it.
Upon receipt of a nomination, I will ask the person named whether she or he is agreeable to stand for election. Those who agree to be nominated will be asked to prepare a brief statement to be published for the Member Section in conjunction with the election.
Thank you for your attention to this. I look forward to receiving your nominations for at-large representatives to the Member Section Steering Committee.
