Subject: [Fwd: [sca-j] Leave of Absence requests]

Please note the rules regarding leave of absence as noted by the SCA J 
TC co-chair.

I was not aware of these rules and the TC had not been following them 
until now. I would like to start using these rules. Please make a note 
of these rules especially since vacation season will start soon.

The rules governing a Leave of Absence request are specified by the TC Process and are as follows:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Every Voting Member of an OASIS TC shall be entitled to at least one Leave of Absence during any one twelve month period. During a Leave of Absence, a Voting Member shall be exempt from the participation criteria specified in Section 2.4. A first Leave of Absence during any one twelve month period shall be obtained automatically upon application to the Chair of the TC. The Chair must notify the TC of all Leaves of Absence by reporting them in the minutes of the TC's next meeting.

A Voting Member who has already been granted a Leave of Absence during any twelve month period may apply for a maximum of one additional Leave of Absence during the same twelve month period, but a second Leave of Absence during any twelve month period shall be granted only upon formal Resolution of the TC.

A Voting Member of a TC who has been granted a Leave of Absence shall not have voting rights in the TC and all of its subcommittees for the duration of the Leave; voting rights shall resume immediately upon the person returning from Leave.

The length of a Leave of Absence shall be specified in advance by the Voting Member requesting it and shall not exceed 45 days. A Leave of Absence shall begin no earlier than seven days after the date upon which the request was delivered to the Chair of the TC and shall end on the date specified, or at the beginning of the first TC meeting or subcommittee meeting attended after the Leave begins, or upon transmittal of the first mail ballot returned after the Leave begins, whichever comes first. Time allocated for a Leave of Absence but not used due to early resumption of participation cannot be carried over into another Leave.

I would like to draw the attention of TC members to the following aspects of the above.

1. There is a maximum of two leaves of absence in any 12 month period.

2. The second leave of absence in any 12 month period requires a formal resolution of the TC.

3. A leave of absence cannot exceed 45 days.

4. At least 7 days notice must be given to the chair before the start date of the leave of absence.

5. The length of a leave of absence must be specified when making the request.

Would all TC members please note the above rules.  In particular, when making a request for a leave of absence, it must specify a start date (at least 7 days in advance of the request), and an end date.  Any requests for a leave of absence that don't comply with these rules will not be granted.
