OASIS Committee membership is held by a person (not an organization), is not transferable, and assumes current membership in the Consortium. When joining a Committee, a person chooses to participate as either an Observer or Committee Member, based on the participation and visibility benefits he or she desires.

A Committee Member automatically gains or loses voting rights based on meeting attendance. Members who do not wish to gain voting rights may request “Persistent Non-Voting” status by written request to the Committee chair and the Committee mailing list.
The Observer role enables you to monitor a Committee’s work without being publicly associated with it. Visibility for Committee Members is based on the level of OASIS membership held by your employer (Foundational Sponsor, Sponsor, or Contributor) or by yourself (Individual or Associate).
