Later today I will open a ballot for election of the Steering Committee. I have approval from the current Steering Committee to reduce the size of the Steering Committee to 3 members. This is permitted under our Rules of Procedure, so long as we keep an odd number of members. For those 3 seats we have 4 very qualified candidates. I'm including below, in alphabetical sequence, the information forwarded by the candidates to introduce themselves and to describe their qualifications, motivations, ideas, etc. If you carry the vote for your organization, please watch your email for the ballot, and follow the link to vote for the 3 candidates you think best qualified to lead our Member Section. Thanks much.

"I believe a registry is a critical ingredient of an effective service-oriented architecture, providing standards-based approach to advertising, discovering and reusing services. UDDI.org will play a key role in ensuring that users appreciate and understand how the registry can be effectively deployed, and the associated technical, architectural, and business process issues. Prospective users need a clear rationale for adopting UDDI, and evidence that the registry can provide business = value. Using case studies, business outreach and by actively enrolling the = support of existing users, analysts, and the media, UDDI.org is well positioned = to show this value and accelerate adoption." "This is an exciting opportunity. My goals for the Member Section would be:
Significantly extend and grow active membership and involvement in the Member Section Develop UDDI.org into a destination site and resource center for
adopters, contributors, journalists and analysts interested in learning about and furthering the development of UDDI
Develop an integrated marketing campaign and outreach to:
- Users of the specification - vendors, enterprise architects and senior IT management who are beginning the process of creating or deploying a = UDDI registry - Prospective adopters of the standard who are grappling with how to architect and deploy an effective SOA - Journalists & Analysts interested in understanding the role and value of UDDI and the progress, support and state-of-adoption of the standard The overall goal will be to significantly raise awareness of UDDI and effectively communicate the standard's importance and centrality for creating a SOA."
