Subject:CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS - Convener, JTC 1/SC 2/WG 2 - Multiple-Octet Codes

The term of office of the current SC 2/WG 2 Convener will expire following the September 1999 SC 2 Plenary. In order to be prepared to put forth a U.S. candidate for approval at the September 1999 SC 2 Plenary, this accelerated call for volunteers is being issued and will close July 1, 1999.

Any member of the WG TAG meeting the requirements set forth below is welcome to volunteer to serve. Before one considers doing so, however, the commitment in time and responsibilities should be considered. Officers must actively support the administrative structure that ensures due process to all participants, assists in reaching consensus and protects the accreditation of the entire system.

Those willing to make this commitment must submit four written statements in support of their candidacy:

  1. A statement of experience, indicating the volunteer's expertise in the subgroup's program of work, voluntary standards efforts, committee experience and leadership abilities.

  2. A statement indicating that the volunteer's organization is a member in good standing of the associated US WG TAG.
  3. A statement of management support for a three-year term on company letterhead acknowledging the additional workload, financial resources and duties required of an officer over and above that of a technical participant.

    The statement of management support for the three-year term is a good faith commitment, not a legal binding commitment. If future circumstances require the applicant to resign from the office before the term has been fulfilled, this will be accepted without prejudice.

  4. A statement as to whether or not the candidate is a representative of a U.S. domiciled organization.

The statements from candidates wishing to serve in the above referenced position should be sent to the JTC 1 TAG Administrator's attention no later than July 1, 1999.
