Subject: Special Board of Directors Elections - Nominations Open

OASIS Members,


On behalf of the entire OASIS organization, I am pleased to announce a Special Election to fill 3 newly-created OASIS Board of Director seats.


The recent written ballot by members of OASIS modified the Bylaws such that we will now have eleven Directors on the Board, including one Appointed Director position held by the currently serving President.  This is an increase over the eight previous Directors, all elected, to enable a wider representation of the globally and technically diverse OASIS membership.


By Resolution of the Board, these three available seats will be filled through a special election by the OASIS membership. 


In order to integrate the new Board members as quickly as possible, the following schedule has been adopted:



26 September - 9 October 2003


Candidate Review and Balloting:

14 - 27 October 2003 


Election Results Announcement to Members

29 October 2003


New Board Members Seated:

25 November 2003



See http://www.oasis-open.org/private/bod_spec_elections_2003.php for a detailed description of the Special Election process and schedule; and the transition plan for moving to an 11 seat Board.


We encourage all interested nominees to submit their nomination documentation as soon as possible.  To help our members know the candidates, all nominees will have the option to provide their reply to the member questions we used during our most recent election.  Nominee-submitted  documentation and  any replies to member questions will be available to all members during the  Candidate Review and Balloting period.


We are pleased to provide these additional Board seats to our members, and therefore look forward to your active participation  in this Special Election .


Please  let us know if you have any questions about  the Special Election process or transitioning to an 11 seat Board.
