OTM SIG Board Elections 2018: Call for Candidates

Help Lead Your Industry as a Board Member for the Oracle Transportation Management Special Interest Group (OTM SIG)

Call for Candidates Submission Deadline: 11:59 p.m. EDT, October 30, 2017

The OTM SIG invites you to join your colleagues and contemporaries to represent a collective membership of professionals dedicated to promoting, shaping and leading the future of Oracle Transportation Management. As an OTM SIG Board Member, you join a dedicated team of professionals working together to:

  • Help promote the ideals and activities of the OAUG in the region
  • Enable communication with Oracle on direction and strategy
  • Share information and experiences among users, managers, and IT professionals
  • Be a conduit for recommended enhancements to Oracle products or processes
  • Provide feedback to Oracle from the user community
  • Facilitate conferences, training and education among the user community
  • Provide representation for the OTM SIG at national and local events

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
  • Three (3) APAC/EMEA Client positions, One (1) APAC/EMEA Partner/Consultancy position
