Subject: Nomination recommendation period begins for OASIS IDtrust Member Section Steering Committee

OASIS members:

Two seats serving two-year terms on the OASIS Identity and Trusted
Infrastructure (IDtrust) Member Section (MS) Steering Committee [1] are open
for nomination recommendations. Any IDtrust MS participant may
nominate or be nominated as a candidate for the Steering Committee.  If
you aren't currently active in the IDtrust Member Section, now is a
great time to join [2]. The process to join is simple but it must be
completed during the nomination period.

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 [3]
 and the IDtrust Member Section Rules of Procedure [4].

Each IDtrust 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 Rep 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.


 Nominations will be held 2 August - 16 August 2012

 The election will be held 17 August - 7 September 2012


 Any IDtrust MS 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 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 participant in the IDtrust Member Section.


The two new Steering Committee members will be selected by the MS
Qualified Electors, using the Single Transferable Voting (STV) process [6].
STV considers each voter's ranked preference for candidates, in order to
more accurately reflect the wishes of the electorate. Results will be
announced immediately after they are tabulated and confirmed.

 We encourage all IDtrust 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.
