Subject: RE: [ws-i-ms] Re: WS-I Steering Committee nominations open



This automatic extension of the nomination period is nonsense and a waste of everyone’s time. (Especially yours!).

What has to be done to change this in the future?

Nomination correction and update:


Previous emails incorrectly reported five seats available for nomination  On 2/26/2013 The Steering Committee voted to reduce the size of the Steering Committee to eight seats, making four seats available for this nomination period.


Nominations closed yesterday with all four expiring SC members seeking reelection.  The Member Section Policy requires extending nominations one time when nominations do not create a contested ballot.  Therefore nomination will be extended until 28 January to accommodate any other members who wish to join the process.


the nomination process is described below.


The Steering committee ballot will open on 29 January without further delay.

OASIS members:

 Five seats serving a two-year term on the OASIS WS-I Member Section
(MS) [1] Steering Committee are open for nomination. The seats
expiring this year are held by MikeDeNicola (Fujitsu), Doug Davis
(IBM), and Micah Hainline (AsynchronySolutions) and Gershon Janssen
The winners of this election will join Joel Fleck (HP), Anish
Karmarkar (Oracle), Prasad Yendluri (Software
AG), and Ram Jeyaraman(Microsoft) and will hold their seats until
December 2015.

Any WS-I MS participant may make nominations to the Steering
Committee. However, only Member Section Members may be a candidate and
nominees employed by organizations already represented on the WS-I
Steering Committee are not eligible.

If you aren't currently active in the WS-I Member Section [2], now is
a great time to join. The
process to join is simple but it must be completed during the
nomination period. Send an email to member-services@oasis-open.org
stating your intent to join the WS-I MS.


Nominations will be held 30 December - 14 January 2014

The election will be held 15 January - 29 January 2014

Both the Nomination and Election periods may be extended in order to
afford the broadest participation on the process.  The details may be
found in Section 5.5 of the Member Section Policy [3].


 Any WS-I MS participant may nominate a candidate via email
to:nominations@oasis-open.org; please state WS-I SC nomination' in the
subject line.

  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 one hour teleconference each month,
promote the work of the Member Section, additional outreach 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 WS-I Member Section Member.


 The five new Steering Committee members will be selected by the MS
Qualified Electors, in a closed ballot. The ballot tabulation process
and quorum requirements are detailed in Section 5.5 of the Member
Section Policy [3].

Results will be announced immediately after they are tabulated and
confirmed. Each WS-I MS 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. The Primary Representative may defer the
voting member role to another employee member by sending an email to
member-services@oasis-open.org; any such change should be in place
before the ballot is cast.

 The nomination and election procedures for the Steering Committee are
defined by the OASIS Member Section Policy [3] and the WS-I Member
Section Rules of Procedure [4].

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