Mr. Eric Muller - For Distribution to the Members of INCITS/L2 (US TAG to JTC 1/SC 2/WG 2)
INCITS Executive Board Members - For Information


Call for Volunteers - Convener, JTC 1/SC 2/WG 2 - Universal Coded Character Set

The term of the current JTC 1/SC 2/WG 2 Convener, Mr. Mike Ksar, will expire following the September 2007 JTC 1/SC 2 Plenary.  This call for volunteers to serve as the US candidate for JTC 1/SC 2/WG 2 Convener is being issued to the members of the US TAG to JTC 1/SC 2 to identify a US candidate for endorsement at the 2007 JTC 1/SC 2 Plenary and will close on March 11, 2007.

Any member of the US 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 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.  This statement must be signed by the candidate's management and submitted on organizational letterhead.

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.

  1. A statement as to whether or not the candidate is a representative of a US domiciled organization.
The statements from candidates wishing to serve in the above referenced position should be sent to the INCITS Secretariat's attention ( no later than March 11, 2007.

Eric –


I have received confirmation from the SC 2 Secretariat that Mike Ksar’s current term as SC 2/WG 2 Convener will expire following the September 2007 SC 2 Plenary.  Please distribute the attached call for volunteers to the members of L2 at your earliest opportunity so that the US can provide an endorsed candidate in time for consideration at the SC 2 Plenary.


I will be in touch after the call has closed on March 11.
