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.



P.S. Note also that the OASIS TC Process and TC Guidelines
were recently revised. The changes were not huge. They're
described at

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.

It's very important that all OASIS members are aware of the proper
methods and opportunities for promoting their work within the

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 Geyer
Director of Communications
