2023 OASIS Sponsor dues announced
Your dues and sponsorship contributions provide the vital support of all OASIS staff and technical operations that make all current collaboration possible. You also help fund the reliable storage and delivery of all OASIS Specifications and Standards created over the years.
Our fiscal responsibility to you and the greater public has 2 facets of equal importance - maximizing your value as a member and ensuring the financial stability of the consortium.
With these responsibilities in mind, The OASIS board of Directors has approved a dues increase for 2023 - effective for all new and renewing memberships and sponsorships effective 1 January 2023. The increase intends to reflect the current inflationary costs on our expenses. The current and upcoming dues are posted at TC Participation Dues and OP Sponsor Dues
Your advance renewal messages and invoicing will reflect the appropriate fee for your member category. Please plan accordingly.
Thank you as always for your support. Your particpation and support are important as we forward the mission of the consortium and advance the work of the TCs and OPs that are important to you.
Please feel free to reach out if we can help you understand your new dues level and benefits or help with paperwork. Your Member Service support team is happy to help! member-services@...

Mary Beth Minto
-Sending on behalf of Gershon Janssen, OASIS Board of Directors Chair-
To OASIS Open Project participants and other interested parties:
I’m happy to announce that Francis Beland is the new Executive Director at OASIS Open.
Francis brings a great deal of enthusiasm and experience as a global thought leader with a passion for disruptive technology and developing large-scale transformational programs with robust commercial leadership. In addition to his background developing innovation programs in healthcare, automotive, biotech, medical devices, governments, oil & gas and energy industries, Francis has held an open innovation advisor role for organizations such as the WHO, WFP, and the European Commission. He previously served as Senior Partner/COO at GAV Conservation Management and as partner at Deloitte/Monitor Group (Los Angeles).
As we begin this next chapter with Francis, I'd like to acknowledge the OASIS Board of Directors for investing their time and consideration in the search and interview process. The number of extremely qualified candidates who applied for the position was evidence of the respect OASIS holds in the international community, which is the direct result of the outstanding work of our members.
The Board and staff are excited to work with Francis, and I’m sure you will share that excitement as you begin to work with him over the coming weeks.
Please join me in welcoming Francis to the OASIS community.

Updates to the OASIS Open Project Rules approved by the Board of Directors
Participants in OASIS Technical Committees and Open Projects,
At its meeting on 06 March 2020, the OASIS Board of Directors approved a set of edits to the OASIS Open Project Rules (https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/open-projects-process).
The changes approved constitute clarifications of the text and do not affect the substance of the rules. You need not change how you are currently working.
Broadly, the changes:
- Clarify when an Entity Contributor License Agreement (ECLA) is required;
- Clarify that an entity may sponsor an Open Project without being required to appoint a representative to the Project Governing board and sign an ECLA;
- Clarify when notice must be given to an Open Project's participants before a required approval action can be taken;
- Clarify that ECLAs are signed for specific Open Projects; and
- Add CC-0 to the list of Applicable Licenses.
The attached redlined file shows these changes in detail.
You can find the new rules posted on the OASIS Policies page (https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/). The changes are effective immediately.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
