Join the JCP at JavaOne 2013!

We published a new article on JCP.org this week, detailing some highlights of the JCP related events and happenings during the week of JavaOne, San Francisco (there's still time to register).  Learn what's happening with the JCP program, JCP.Next, the Adopt-a-JSR program, meet the 11th Annual JCP Award nominees and potential new JCP Executive Committee (EC) members (remember all ratified and elected terms expire this year so it will be an exciting election in 2013). As I mentioned, these are just the highlights--I'll be posting a more complete list of conference sessions as we get closer to JavaOne.

There will be plenty of opportunities on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during JavaOne 2013. We will start with the public JCP EC/Community Meeting on Sunday, and the annual JCP party on Monday evening at the top of the Hilton Hotel (CityScape room)--we will also announce the winners of the annual awards at the party--see below for details.   New this year... we will be holding some Meet the Expert sessions in the OTN Lounge (2:30-3:00 pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday--stop by to say hello!) and hosting a Meet and Greet for JCP ‪affectionado‬s on Wednesday afternoon in the Hilton.

Can you believe we will be meeting together in just three weeks!  The countdown begins!

2013 EC Elections Process Set to Start

Calling anyone interested in running for a JCP Executive Committee seat!   This year will be an exciting election since the current EC Members and any prospective new EC Members will run for election--24 EC seats will be ratified or elected by the JCP Program Membership (specific details on this below).  Now is the time to prepare your nomination! The official nomination period begins 13 September.  Exact details for nomination submissions are available on the JCP EC Elections page.

JCP 2.9 with a Merged EC Took Effect in November 2012. The final step in implementing JCP 2.9 concludes with the 2013 Fall Executive Committee Elections, starting in September. This year, as defined in the Appendix B of the JCP 2.9 Process Document, all of the elected and ratified seats are up for re-election. Three Ratified and two Elected Seats will be eliminated, reducing the EC to a total of 25 members - 16 Ratified Seats, 8 Elected Seats and one permanent seat held by Oracle America, Inc.

JCP 2.9 defines EC seats will have two year term cycles (instead of three year term cycles). Members elected in 2013 will be ranked to determine whether their initial term will be one or two years. The 50% of Ratified and 50% of Elected members who receive the most votes will serve an initial two-year term, while all others will serve an initial one year term.  All members elected in 2014 and subsequently will serve a two-year term.

The nomination period of the Elections will begin on 13 September. The JCP will accept self-nominations for the 8 Elected Seats through 26 September.  JCP Members (JSPA 2 Primary Contacts) will receive messages with instructions for nominating and their login credentials via email on 13 September. You will need this credential information to login and complete the nomination.
The ballot with nominees for Ratified and Elected seats will be open from 15 October until 28 October. The results will be available on jcp.org on 29 October.

For now, prepare your materials and plan to attend the JCP BoF session at JavaOne as well as the Meet the Candidates call on Thursday, 10 October at 9:30 AM PDT.  As a nominee to the Executive Committee, you are encouraged to attend the "Meet the JCP Executive Committee Candidates" (Session ID: BOF4672) at JavaOne the week of 22 September at the Hilton in San Francisco (JavaOne Conference pass required).

These are great opportunities to present your qualification statements to the eligible voters. Please notify us if you plan to attend: pmo at jcp.org.
