Subject: [idtrust-ms] OASIS IDtrust Member Section Steering Committee
nominations and Elections

OASIS members:
Three seats on the OASIS Identity and Trusted Infrastructure (IDtrust)
Member Section Steering Committee [1] are up for election in April/May.
All IDtrust participants are invited to nominate qualified candidates
and/or serve on the Steering Committee. If you aren't currently active
in IDtrust, now is a great time to join.

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 [2]
and the IDtrust Member Section Rules of Procedure [3]. 

There are five elected members on the IDtrust Steering Committee; each
serve two-year terms. The elections are staggered annually to assure
continuity of leadership. This year, the Member Section will elect two
Steering Committee members to full two-year terms and one member to
serve one year (completing the term of a retiring Steering Committee
member). The two candidates receiving the highest ranked votes will each
serve two-year terms. The candidate receiving the third highest ranked
votes will serve a one-year term. 

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

Each IDtrust Supporting Entity has one Qualified Elector who casts the
single vote on behalf of his/her organization. Unless otherwise
designated, the organization's Primary Rep serves as the Qualified


Nominations will be open 03-April-2008 through 24-April-2008. 

The election will be held 28-April-2008 through 12-May-2008. 

The newly seated Steering Committee will hold its first meeting by
teleconference on 04-June-2008. 


Any IDtrust 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 two-hour teleconference each month, attendance at
two face-to-face meetings annually, additional support activities as

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 the IDtrust Member Section. 


The three new Steering Committee members will be selected by the IDtrust
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 and to eliminate "wasted"  votes. IDtrust Qualified Electors
will be sent detailed voting instructions separately. 

Results will be announced immediately after they are tabulated and

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