Coordinating Community Sessions

At the Coordinating community sessions, you will have the opportunity to actively influence the focus and direction of the community, as well as have the opportunity to elect the Pre-Award Community leader for the next two years.

Isabella Rapisarda, the current Pre-Award CC Leader is available to continue for the next term of two years, but the call for other candidates is open should others have the motivation and possibility to raise their candidacy. The Election process and the call for candidacy will be sent to all official OpenPEPPOL member representatives as well as pre-Award community members, and can be obtained by other member representatives by contacting the Community leader directly.

General Assembly

One of the major activities at the General Assembly is the election of two members of the management board and approval of one coordinating community leader.

Open for re-election is Niels Pagh-Rasmussen representing Service Providers, and Scott BELL representing government organizations and end users. They are both available to continue for the next term of two years, but the call for other candidates is open should other member representatives have the motivation and possibility to raise their candidacy.

As described above the CC leader will be elected at the CC parallel session and will then be formally approved at the General Assembly. Election criteria as well as the call for candidacy will be sent out to the Pre-Award CC members separately.

In addition to the approval of the CC leader, and electing the two additional MC members, the General Assembly will also provide you with an overview of the following:

  • Main activities and achievements in 2015
  • Strategy and work plan for 2016 and beyond
  • Accounting results of 2015 and budget for 2016.

We look forward to welcoming you in Brussels.
