Nomination open in JCP Special Election

The JCP program office is in the process of holding its' first ever Executive Committee (EC) Special Election. After nine years of conducting an annual elections process for the EC members, this is a first! Intel recently resigned from the Java ME EC (but remains on the Java SE/EE EC), leaving an empty seat with a 2 year term remaining.

So far we have 4 candidates. 2 corporations--Aplix and Cox Communications, and 2 individuals--Shawn Fitzgerald and Marlon Luz. It is shaping up to be an exciting election indeed. Nominations for the open EC seat are being accepted until midnight PST on 16 February; send to JCP-NOMINATIONS@JCP.ORG.

Elections will be held beginning 24 February. You must be a JCP program member to nominate yourself for an EC seat. If you are interested in getting more involved in the JCP, this is your opportunity. You can follow the nominations, view position papers, and participate in an interactive Q&A.

In December 2008 we welcomed 2 new corporations--SpringSource and Ericsson on the SE/EE EC and 2 new individuals--Sean Sheedy on the ME EC and Werner Keil on the SE/EE EC. If you missed the 2008 EC Election results you can view them here.

In the spirit of transparency and openness, another exciting happening in the latter part of 2008 was the decision to make the EC meeting summaries and materials available to the public--materials available from September 2008 onward. Previously summaries (not the materials) were available to JCP program members. More on the program office transparency initiative later...
