Subject: OASIS IDtrust Member Section Steering Committee Nominations Now Open

OASIS members:

Two seats serving two-year terms on the OASIS Identity and Trusted
Infrastructure (IDtrust) Member Section (MS) Steering Committee [1] are
open for nomination recommendations. Any IDtrust MS participant may
nominate or be nominated as a candidate for the Steering Committee.  If
you aren't currently active in the IDtrust Member Section, now is a great
time to join [2]. The process to join is simple but it must be completed
during the nomination period.

The IDtrust Steering Committee provides guidance to help the Member
Section achieve its goal of promoting greater understanding and adoption
of standards-based identity and trusted infrastructure technologies,
policies, and practices. The nomination and election procedures for the
Steering Committee are defined by the OASIS Member Section Policy [3] and
the IDtrust Member Section Rules of Procedure [4].

Each IDtrust MS Supporting Entity has one Qualified Elector who casts the
single vote on behalf of his/her organization. Unless otherwise
designated, the organization's Primary Representative serves as the
Qualified Elector.
The Primary Rep may defer the voting member role to another employee
member by sending an email to member-services@oasis-open.org; any such
change should be in place before the ballot is cast.


Nominations will be held 11 June - 1 July 2010.

The election will be held 5 July - 19 July 2010.


Any IDtrust MS participant may nominate a candidate via email to:


Prior to being confirmed as a candidate, each nominee must:

1. Accept the nomination

2. Confirm his/her ability to meet the time commitments of the position
(participation in a one hour teleconference each month, promote the work
of the Member Section, additional outreach activities as needed);

3. Provide background information and a position statement describing
his/her qualifications and motivations for serving on the Steering
Committee; and

4. Be a participant in the IDtrust Member Section.


The two new Steering Committee members will be selected by the MS
Qualified Electors, using the Single Transferable Voting (STV) process -
Scottish  Method [6]. STV considers each voter's ranked preference for
candidates, in order to more accurately reflect the wishes of the
electorate. Results will be announced immediately after they are tabulated
and confirmed.

We encourage all IDtrust MS participants to consider serving on the
Steering Committee. Please contact (member-services@oasis-open.org) with
any questions you might have regarding this process.
