Subject: 2006 Board and TAB election details.
Voting Reps, As you know, the OASIS Board of Directors and Technical Advisory Board ballots are now open. Your participation in these ballots is important, the winning candidates will be representing you and all members for the next two years in the Board and TAB. The ballot is scheduled to close 26 June. The members of OASIS have nominated a very impressive slate of candidates from which you can choose. The candidates provide a great variety of perspectives from Professor to CEO, candidates for reelection and candidates with new points of view. We have candidates from several continents, with equally diverse technical expertise. All the candidates deserve your review and consideration. You may review the Board candidates at http://www.oasis-open.org/private/elections/2006board/ and the TAB candidates at http://www.oasis-open.org/private/elections/2006tab/ The ballots are found at http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/voting/ballot.php?id=1040 and http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/voting/ballot.php?id=1039 In the coming weeks, you will receive some email via this list from the candidates who want you to know more about them. This list is now open to all members' posting, but we expect all postings to this Voting list to be specific to the open ballots. We will also have the firstname.lastname@example.org list available for general member dialogue about the candidates and election process. Looking at the ballot, the list of voting member organizations will show, by default, the Primary Contact for each organization. Alternate Voters have access to the ballot, but are not shown unless they cast their organization's vote. In this way we preserve the representation of one vote per member organization. Lastly, we are asking you to make some tough decisions between many very qualified candidates. Therefore, Board and TAB ballots are private, so you can vote freely. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions as we move through this year's elections. Your participation is important and we are here to help you through that.
