Subject: OASIS Media Relations
I don't think the chairs forwarded this note when it was first provided to us. I just saw it go out on the PKI-TC list and it reminded me we also needed to do it. The key item for all TC members is: > Notify your TC members that any company press release referencing OASIS > work must be sent to me for review prior to distribution.

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 ____________________________________________ Carol Geyer Director of Communications OASIS http://www.oasis-open.org email@example.com Voice: +1 978.667.5115 x209 To unsubscribe from this mailing list (and be removed from the roster of the OASIS TC), go to http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/chairs/members/leave_workgroup. php.
