Next OAB elections - process and timeline

07 Nov 2017
Groups audience: 

Dear all,
Today the updated process for the next OAB has been fixed (see excerpt from the minutes below).
All current OAB members should express their interest for reelection by the 17th of November
All new candidates should submit their nominations along with a motivation statement and two seconding statements from OA members by the end of November.
(Note that the seconding statement should be a simple “I second the nomination of ‘full name’ as OAB member).
All requests should be sent to ***@***.***-alliance.org
Looking forward to your expressions of interest/nominations.
Best wishes,
Fotis

    Hi
    I won't be standing for re-election next year. I have a couple of new
    programs of work that will take up all my time in 2018 and, unfortunately,
    I have to free up some time/commitments and won't be able to give the OAB
    role the attention it deserves.

    Thanks Malcolm,
    We will certainly miss you from OAB, but you can always join us as OA member when you have time (OAB calls are open to all OA members!)
    A kind reminder for the rest of the OAB members whose term is ending at the next plenary, namely:
    Amy, Fabrizio, Kevin, and Raphael
    @Kevin, you already declared your interest during the call to stand for reelection, but it would be good to confirm this.
    Thanks in advance to all,
    Kind regards,
    Fotis

    Hi Fotis, this reminds me to share with you and the rest of the OAB that BSC regretfully is not continuing with membership in the OAB. Following an in detail review of our financial engaments in RDA we decided that we could not justify any longer this investment. I would be happy to continue serving till the next plenary in March 2018 or step down earlier as you think is more appropriate. Obviously I am not standing for re-election.
    Apologies and best regards,
