and activities for the international standards consortium.

OASIS Board of Directors Special Election Ends Soon

OASIS Board of Directors. Five candidates were nominated for the position
including Winston Bumpus of Dell, Bob Glushko of the University of
California at Berkley, Ron Lake of Galdos Systems, Paul Lipton of Computer
Associates, and Claus Von Riegen of SAP AG. Each member is encouraged to
review the candidates bios, and encourage his or her Primary Contact to cast
a ballot.



Sponsor OASIS Symposium

Duel sponsorship opportunities are still available for the upcoming
OASIS Symposium and OASIS Adoption Forum. OASIS relies on these
sponsorships to provide funding necessary to maintain affordable meeting
fees, ensuring the widest possible level of participation. Sponsors also
underwrite the cost of OASIS Committee meetings, allowing members to
collaborate face-to-face and Committees to interact with one another. If
you are able to support OASIS as a Dual Event Sponsor, please contact
dee.schur@oasis-open.org or complete the online OASIS Event Sponsorship
Request Form.


Posting Company News to XML.org

One of the benefits of OASIS Sponsor membership is the ability to distribute
company news and announcements via the XML.org web site. Press releases and
other information sent by Sponsors to the OASIS "announce" mailing list will
be automatically posted on the XML.org homepage, linked to the member's web
site. Members must be subscribed to the OASIS PR Group to post to announce.
