Subject: OASIS Emergency Interoperability Member Section Launches; Steering Committee Seated

The consortium is pleased to announce the formation of the OASIS Emergency
Interoperability (EI) Member Section. This new group will work to accelerate
the development, adoption, application, and implementation of emergency
interoperability and communications standards. The Member Section will
represent and serve the needs of all constituents in the marketplace;
practitioners, technology providers, and national, international and
multinational oversight agencies are all strongly encouraged to join this

The EI Member Section will oversee the work of the OASIS Emergency
Management (EM) Technical Committee, which produces information exchange
standards that advance incident preparedness and response to emergency
situations. Founded in January 2003, the TC's accomplishments include the
Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) Distribution Element and the Common
Alerting Protocol (CAP) OASIS Standards, both of which are widely used in
the emergency community. The Member Section also welcomes suggestions for
forming new Committees to address other issues related to emergency

The Steering Committee for the EI Member Section will include David
Lamendsdorf, David Aylward, and Tracy Ryan of the Emergency Interoperability
Consortium, Elysa Jones of Warning Systems (chair of the OASIS EM TC), and
Dr. Donald Ponikvar of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Future
Steering Committee elections will be held annually.

All interested parties are invited to participate in the EI Member Section.
It costs OASIS members nothing extra to get involved in this work. Please
review the MS web site or contact member-services@oasis-open.org for more
