The Call for Candidates
The OTM SIG bylaws authorize 13 voting members, five (5) non-voting members, and one (1) Oracle liaison on the Board of Directors. OTM SIG members elect 18 representatives to the Board of Directors from a slate of current, active members. The 2017 election will contain nine (9) open seats. Directors serve staggered, two-year terms. Directors represent the OTM SIG membership at large on policy issues, relations with Oracle Corporation, conference planning and overall user affairs.
OTM SIG Board Openings for the 2017 Election
To ensure continuity of the OTM SIG direction and strategy, we do not replace our entire board membership at the same time. Rather, every year a portion of the board is re-elected. Regular participation in quarterly conference calls is required as well attendance at weekly board meetings and more frequent meetings leading up to our annual conference. This averages to approximately 4-6 volunteer hours per month and is essential for the board to function properly and to be successful in all of its endeavors. The board may have one annual planning meeting per year prior to the OTM Conference.
- Three (3) Americas Client positions, Two (2) Americas Partner/Consultancy position
