2009 Election Time Line


Election process

Because there was no qurom at last Board of Directors, the Board could not make a negotiated decision with regard to the election and therefore required that we strictly apply the bylaws: only Members in good standing can participate in the election, i.e. vote or be candidate for a seat on the Board or for the Chairperson seat. This means that Individual Members must return their fully executed (signed) membership agreements and Strategic and Corporate Members must settle their call for dues for 2009.

As a consequence we have rescheduled the election process so as to allow members who want to vote or be candidate to clarify their memberships.


Based on the current number of Strategic Members, Corporate Members will vote to elect 14 representatioves and Individual Members will vote to elect one representative. Strategic Members do not vote. The new schedule is as follows:

  • April 6-20: membership validation period
  • April 21-30: candidates campaign
  • May 1-10: online vote
  • May 12: results
  • May 15: Board meeting and Chairperson election.
(All periods end 12pm CET.)

Only Corporate Members having fully paid their Membership fees, or duely informed the Management Office, can be candidates and are eligible to participate in OW2 Elections and Board Meetings votes.

For Candidate registration, as usual now, you must use the following template (candidatures will be published on the OW2 Web site):
Subject: Candidature from (personal name) (organization name) to the OW2 board

The Chairperson is a member of the Board and is elected by the members of the Board. The schedule for the 2009 election is as follows:

  • April 16-21: Registration of Candidates
  • April 21-30: Candidates campaign: Q&A with the applicants on the mailing list
  • May 01-15: Vote: online or face-to-face during a board meeting
  • May 15: Result of Chairperson election
(All periods end 12pm CET.)


The 2009 General Assembly of the OW2 Consortium will be held on April 1, 8:30 – 10:00 just before the opening session of the OW2 Annual Conference. It will take place in the OW2 Conference Center set up within the Solution Linux trade show, in Paris, Porte de Versailles.

The draft Agenda of the General Assembly is as follows:

  • Report of the Management Office -Financial, General- (20' incl. Q&A)
