Subject: OpenCSA Member Section Steering Committee Nomination Now Open

OASIS OpenCSA members:

Four seats on the OASIS Open CSA Member Section Steering Committee [1] 
are up for election in May. All Open CSA participants are invited to 
nominate qualified candidates and/or serve on the Steering Committee. 
If you aren't currently active in Open CSA, now is a great time to join.

The Open CSA Steering Committee provides guidance to help the Member 
Section achieve its goal to advance open standards that simplify SOA 
application development. The nomination and election procedures for 
the Steering Committee is defined by the OASIS Member Section Policy [2] 
and the Open CSA Member Section Rules of Procedure [3]. 

There are seven elected members on the Open CSA Steering Committee; each 
serve two-year terms. The elections are staggered annually to assure 
continuity of leadership. This year, the Member Section will elect four 
Steering Committee members to full two-year terms.

Any Open CSA participant [4] may nominate or be nominated as a candidate 
for the Steering Committee. (Any OASIS member may join the Open CSA Member 
Section at no additional cost additional cost [5].) 

Each Open CSA 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. 


Nominations will be open 17-May-2010 through 31-May-2010. 

The election will be held 01-June-2010 through 15-June-2010. 

These elected seats will be effective June 16th, 2010. The Open CSA Steering

Committee has regularly scheduled teleconference meetings on the second

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 two-hour teleconference each month, attendance at two
  face-to-face meetings annually, additional support 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 Open CSA Member Section. 


The four new Steering Committee members will be selected by the Open CSA
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. Open CSA Qualified Electors will be sent detailed voting
instructions separately. 

Results will be announced immediately after they are tabulated and

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