Who is eligible to vote in the IC elections?

Any Gold or Platinum OCP Corporate Member in good standing. 

Why we are extending the process

We are in the final stages of rolling out our new tiered membership process and we don’t want to rush through the election process or miss any member organization who qualifies for nomination or a voting key.  We are in the process of checking the qualification contributions and will email all our members in the next two weeks.  We will keep the nomination phase open until all members have been contacted.

This also allows us to time both the Project Lead and IC Elections in such a way that these elections are always after the OCP Summit and do not conflict with one another.

Thank you so much for you patience and understanding.  We are working hard to include our members and community.  Stay tuned for more information on the election process and tiered membership throughout the coming weeks.
