OASIS members:

I would like to remind you of this call for nominations, and that the
deadline for submitting nominations is 29 March. This is a great
opportunity for OASIS members to have input into our technical work.

Please feel free to contact Una Kearns (ukearns@documentum.com) or
myself if you have any questions about the TAB.

> Board
> OASIS Members,
> OASIS is unique among standards groups in that our technical agenda is
> driven by our members themselves. The recent growth of OASIS TCs is a
> testament to the success of our open technical process. We now have 25
> TCs with more on the way, and increasing numbers of standards
> bodies and
> industry groups are seeking liaisons with us.
> With that growth has come the need for OASIS to provide a coordinated
> vision for the industry and to offer guidance on technical
> direction for
> our members. To that end, the Consortium is pleased to announce the
> formation of the OASIS Technical Advisory Board, an elected group of
> industry experts who will provide input to the OASIS Board of
> Directors
> on technical topics meriting member consideration.
> The OASIS Technical Advisory Board will anticipate growth and envisage
> future direction for the Consortium. Its members will identify
> interoperability issues and encourage the formation of TCs to address
> those issues. They will seek convergence wherever possible, helping to
> coordinate OASIS work with that of other standards-setting bodies.
> Acting as stewards of the OASIS technical agenda, Technical Advisory
> Board members will provide guidance on issues related to strategy,
> process, interoperability, and scope. They will support the growth of
> technical work within OASIS by identifying topics for standardization
> that will be beneficial for the industry. They will recommend areas of
> collaboration within and between OASIS TCs. The OASIS
> Technical Advisory
> Board Charter
> http://www.oasis-open.org/nominations_tab/tab_charter.pdf
> provides additional details on the activities of this group.
> The OASIS Technical Advisory Board will be comprised of ten voting
> members. Four members are elected by the OASIS membership, and four
> appointed by the Board. An OASIS staff member and a Board
> representative
> will also serve. OASIS Technical Advisory Board Members will
> commit to a
> term of two years, with staggered one-year elections/appointments.
> All member companies are strongly encouraged to nominate
> representatives
> for the OASIS Technical Advisory Board. To be considered, applicants
> must submit a biography and a letter to the OASIS membership
> describing
> their interest in serving, as well as their qualifications. The letter
> may also include opinions on future directions for OASIS and ideas for
> technical activities. Members will review these materials via
> the OASIS
> website and vote for those individuals they believe most capable of
> providing technical guidance to the organization. Applicants should be
> willing to commit to monthly meetings, but otherwise required time and
> travel should be at a minimum.
> Applications for the OASIS Technical Advisory Board should be
> submitted
> to nominations@oasis-open.org on or before 29 March. Elections will be
> held 1-30 April. The first meeting of the TAB will be in May 2002.
> Be assured, the OASIS Technical Advisory Board will not
> affect the open
> technical process of OASIS. The Technical Advisory Board will
> act in an
> advisory capacity and will not create TCs or restrict TC activities.
> We ask that all members give serious consideration to serving on the
> OASIS Technical Advisory Board or encouraging a qualified expert to
> serve. If you have any questions, please contact me or any
> other member
> of the OASIS Board of Directors.
