Subject: OASIS Board Election
I want to take just a moment of your time to do two things in regard to the OASIS Board of Directors Special Election that opened on Monday March 15th:
1 – The most important point – I ask you to vote. Organizations such as OASIS succeed when members participate and regardless of who you vote for, I encourage your participation. The link for direct access to the ballot is http://tools.oasis-open.org/election/2010/special/
2 – As a relative outsider to the OASIS Board of Directors, I feel that it is important to explain why I am asking for your vote in this election. I have actively participated on the Board of the IJIS Institute, a more industry specific non-profit providing technical leadership, expertise, and standards development to support system integration among justice agencies. I found the challenges of being on the Board of Directors and serving as President of the Board both exciting and meaningful. Quite simply, I want to continue addressing those challenges with an organization that I also care about – OASIS – and making meaningful contributions. At IJIS, I have seen how adding a member from outside of the Board of Director’s circle invigorates the Board and opens thinking beyond norms. Thus, with my Board level experience and my external perspective, I offer a great deal to OASIS and its future.
My statement and biography are available at http://www.oasis-open.org/private/elections/2010special/kaelin.php If you are interested in any specific discussions, please email or call, I welcome all inquiries.
