Subject: OASIS memberships for ebXML participants

ebXML Participants:

As you may be aware, work on ebXML will continue as a coordinated activity
between members of UN/CEFACT and OASIS. As announced at the Vienna ebXML
meeting, ongoing maintenance of ebXML infrastructure (messaging,
registry/repository, security and collaborative partners work) will be
conducted within the OASIS technical process because of the Consortium's
expertise in XML standards development, and ongoing maintenance of ebXML
business content (core components and messages, and business process models)
will be continued within UN/CEFACT because of its experience in UN/EDIFACT
EDI standards.

Participation in OASIS technical activities requires that the person be an
OASIS member, either through their employer or individually. While many
ebXML participants are employees of OASIS member organizations, many are
not. So to allow active ebXML participants to continue their work within
OASIS, the Consortium is offering a free one-year Individual OASIS
memberships to any ebXML participant who attended at least two of the last
three ebXML meetings (Tokyo, Vancouver or Vienna) and who is not already an
employee of an OASIS member organization.

To obtain this free membership, you must sign up at
http://www.oasis-open.org/join/ebxml.shtml before 30 June 2001. Note that
you must sign up for OASIS membership to become eligible to participate in
OASIS technical committees.

If you did not attend two of the last three ebXML meetings you can still
participate in ebXML infrastructure work by joining OASIS. Individual
memberships are 250 USD per year. With an Individual OASIS membership, a
person can participate in any/all of the OASIS technical committees--not
just ebXML. The membership is non-transferrable.

Contributor and Sponsor memberships are also available for organizations.
For organizations that want to have multiple employees participate in OASIS
technical work, at least a Contributor level membership is required. For
organizations that also want to take advantage of OASIS promotional benefits
(being featured in press releases, on the OASIS website, etc.) a Sponsor
level membership is required.

For any of these membership levels, please see
http://www.oasis-open.org/join/index.shtml for more information and an
online application.

Please contact me if you have any questions on OASIS technical committees,
our technical process or our plans for future ebXML work. Contact Scott
McGrath, the OASIS Member Services Manager  (scott.mcgrath@oasis-open.org)
with any questions on OASIS membership.

We look forward to advancing the ebXML infrastructure work with all of you.
