Subject: OASIS Media Relations
Carol Geyer asked all the TC chairs to review the OASIS guidelines for media relations with our TC members. See the email below for the details. I think the main thing you need to notice in the email is: > Notify your TC members that any company press release > referencing OASIS work must be sent to [Carol Geyer] > for review prior to distribution. Carol requests this since she often gets calls about such press releases and wants to be able to respond intelligently. So this is a matter of courtesy that will benefit your company as well as OASIS. Thanks, Steve P.S. Note also that the OASIS TC Process and TC Guidelines were recently revised. The changes were not huge. They're described at http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/change_summary_2003.php -------- Original Message -------- Subject: [chairs] OASIS Media Relations Date: Fri, 5 Sep 2003 14:00:16 -0400 From: "Carol Geyer" <email@example.com> Reply-To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: "TC chairs" <email@example.com> CC: "Patrick Gannon" <firstname.lastname@example.org>,"Karl Best" <email@example.com>,"Jamie Clark" <firstname.lastname@example.org> OASIS TC chairs: Please take a moment to review the "OASIS TC Guidelines for Promoting Your Work" and the "OASIS Media Relations Guidelines" and ask the members of your TC (and their PR representatives) to review these documents as well. http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/guidelines.php#promoting http://www.oasis-open.org/news/media_relations_policy.php It's very important that all OASIS members are aware of the proper methods and opportunities for promoting their work within the Consortium. We're more than happy to have members endorse or announce support for OASIS activities, provided they are accurate and have already been made public on the OASIS web site and/or through an OASIS press release. Notify your TC members that any company press release referencing OASIS work must be sent to me for review prior to distribution. Inform me of any press inquiries you receive in your role as OASIS TC chair, as well as any requests from your TC members to provide quotes or approve press releases. Please appreciate that my concerns go beyond issues of courtesy or turf. Company press releases that mention OASIS TCs result in editors and analysts contacting me with questions. When I am aware of member releases prior to distribution, I am naturally in a better position to respond positively and intelligently. Also, be assured that I will not approve any press releases related to your OASIS TC without your review and approval as TC chair. Thanks for your help, Carol ____________________________________________ Carol Geyer Director of Communications OASIS http://www.oasis-open.org email@example.com Voice: +1 978.667.5115 x209 To unsubscribe from this mailing list (and be removed from the roster of the OASIS TC), go to http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/chairs/members/leave_workgroup.php.
