Call for Candidates Submission Deadline: 11:59 PM EST, November 8, 2016

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 2016 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 Organization

The OTM SIG Board positions include:

  • Seven (7) Americas Client positions, Three (3) Americas Partner/Consultancy positions
  • Six (6) APAC/EMEA Client positions, Two (2) APAC/EMEA Partner/Consultancy positions
  • One (1) Oracle APAC/EMEA Liaison
  • A Board Chair for Americas and EMEA/APAC is elected by the OTM SIG board following each election. Preference will be given to a board member that has served at least one year. In the best interest of the OTM SIG and in order to maintain the focus of the user-based community, the chair role is limited to client candidates.
  • APAC/EMEA positions will focus on outreach in the APAC/EMEA regions in order to gain a global presence with the OTM SIG.

OTM SIG Board Openings for the 2016 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.

  • Americas – four (4) client seats open
  • Americas – one (1) consulting seat open
  • APAC/EMEA – three (3) client seats open
  • APAC/EMEA Partner/Consultancy Board Members – one (1) consulting seat

Election Guidelines

Several changes have been made to the electoral process to ensure that the OTM SIG remains an independent, user-driven board. The following voting requirements have been implemented to ensure that the election is fair and not skewed by any single company:

  • Voting shall be restricted to individuals that meet the following guidelines:
    • Registered OTM SIG member at the time the election begins (11:59 PM November 14, 2016)
    • Employee of a company that is designated as a current or future end user of Oracle Transportation Management. Consulting companies, including Oracle, and Software Providers will be ineligible to vote.
  • Ballots will be sent to email addresses of individuals that are current OTM SIG members and will include a voting key. Voting keys are a unique identifier that ensures only you can vote and that the vote can only be submitted once.
  • Based on the honor system, the first question asked on the ballot will be "Is your company a current or future end user of OTM?", a no answer will be our flag to eliminate the vote from the tally.
  • Voters will enter their name/company/and email address on the ballot, when the election is closed, those who answered no to the end user question will be thrown out. Board members will also review the results and have the right to throw out votes that do not meet the guidelines.

We look forward to receiving your response. Please contact Molly Whobrey, OAUG Geo/SIG Manager, at geo-sig@oaug.org if you have any questions.
