From: Jennifer T. Garner, for the NCITS Secretariat
Subject: CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS - Chairman - NCITS/L2, Codes and Character Sets
The current NCITS/L2 Chairman, Mr. Arnold Winkler, has notified the NCITS Secretariat that he must relinquish his officer position at the end of 2001. In order to allow all members of NCITS/L2 an opportunity to serve in this capacity, we are issuing this call for volunteers to close on November 26, 2001.
Any member of the NCITS Subgroup 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. [There is no limit to the number of terms an individual may serve. There is a rule prohibiting one individual from being appointed to two or more offices of the same committee simultaneously.]
The NCITS/SD-2, Organization, Rules and Procedures of NCITS, generally describes officers' responsibilities, and a more detailed list of duties has been compiled in the NCITS/SD-8, Officers'Reference Manual.
Those willing to make this commitment must submit three written statements in support of their candidacy:
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.
Any supplemental materials will be forwarded along with the advisory ballot to NCITS, which appoints all NCITS Subgroup officers. The statements from candidates wishing to serve in the above referenced position on the NCITS Subgroup should be sent to the attention of Jennifer Garner no later than November 26, 2001.
