Subject: 2006 OASIS Board of Directors and Technical Advisory Board Election Schedule

OASIS Members,

The 2006 Board of Directors and Technical Advisory Board election schedule
has been posted to http://www.oasis-open.org/who/election_process.php You
play an important role in this process, so please 

OASIS is a unique organization in that its Board of Directors and Technical
Advisory Board are openly selected by the member organizations of OASIS.
This provides all members the opportunity to share in the leadership and to
know that the leadership is representative of the entire marketplace.  We
look forward to the selection of a Board of Directors and Technical Advisory
Board that continues to provide the unique leadership and market
representation that has made OASIS a global success.  We encourage all
member organizations to consider making a nomination(s) to ensure their
vision of our future is properly represented on the TAB and BoD

OASIS elections for the Board of Directors and Technical Advisory
Board occur concurrently to maximize the benefit of the time commitment made
by members to properly participate in the candidate review and selection
process. The process and candidate requirements differ slightly between the
BoD and TAB, so please review the following carefully. 


The OASIS Board of Directors is comprised of top-level executives
experienced in managing growth and who are dedicated to advancing open
standards for interoperability. By serving on the OASIS Board, directors
exercise a major impact on the strategic direction of the consortium and on
development and implementation of XML-based standards and specifications.
Recognized for their contributions by both the technology and user
communities, the directors guide OASIS in its mission to drive the
development, convergence and adoption of open e-business standards.

The OASIS Board is comprised of 10 elected directors, serving two-year
terms. The terms are staggered annually to preserve management continuity.
Additionally, the OASIS president holds a seat at the Board.  See
http://www.oasis-open.org/who/bod.php for details.

This year, the following Board of Directors' seats expire:

Edward Cobb, BEA

Mike DeNicola, Fujitsu Software 

Bob Glushko, Center for Document Engineering, U-California Berkeley

Frederick Hirsch, Nokia

Jeff Mischkinsky, Oracle Corporation


The OASIS TAB serves a variety of roles for OASIS. The TAB identifies
opportunities and areas for standardization within the consortium that are
beneficial for the entire community. TAB members advise the OASIS Board of
Directors on the OASIS consortium's technical agenda and on interoperability
and alignment issues: they also, and encourage activities to address those

OASIS TAB members have the technical understanding to articulate
relationships between the wide range of current technologies and the
strategic vision to help map the future technical direction.

The TAB consists of 10 voting members, eight of whom are "at-large"
representatives elected by the OASIS membership for two year terms, with
staggered terms for consistency.  These are in addition to 2 members
representing the Board of Directors and staff. See

This year, the following TAB seats expire:
