Subject: Re: [opencsa-ms] SCA/SDO Market Awareness Road-show

   AFAIK, this sort of activity is most definitely allowed. It is in  
fact one of the reasons why we formed a Member Section. That said,  
the SC will have to discuss and decide if it wants the MS to engage/ 
support this activity.

   I'm not exactly sure of the mechanism, we'll need some help/input  
from OASIS staff on that. It is also possible some of these  
activities could be integrated into the OASIS Information Days that  
OASIS runs as part of its promotional activities.
