At the Printer Working Group Plenary Meeting on 8 October, it was pointed out that the PWG is presently operating in violation of its bylaws. The the positions of chairman, vice chair and secretary must be filled but the terms of the previous officers expired on September 1. There has not been an election because we do not have a full roster of candidates although there was a call for nominations at the June Portland meeting and in the minutes of that meeting.
The terms of the current PWG officers expire in September 2003. The organization requires that the offices of chairman, vice chairman and secretary must be filled. The duties of these officers are listed in the PWG Process document. Although this document is currently under revision, definition of duties is quite similar in both versions. Nominations are open and should be submitted to the current chairman or the secretary. (The secretary does not intend to run for re-election.)
The current version of the process document (which outlines the bylaws and the description of officers' duties) is at:
It is regarded as necessary that, for the organizations continued viability, properly elected officers be installed at the December Face-to-Face (Dec 1). This means that nominations for candidates for the three officers must be received by 14 November, with the roster of candidates published and the election starting 15 November. This will allow a 10 business day voting period prior to the next face-to-face meeting on 2 December.
The PWG constituent working groups continue to develop standards and procedures critical to the advancement of imaging. The organization continues to act as a liaison with other standards groups to provide adequate supporting for imaging services within a larger context. The PWG remains an important part of the industry. I urge the members to offer nominations for each of the offices to me (acting-secretary) or Harry Lewis (acting-Chairman). A brief professional bio of the candidate would also be helpful.
Bill Wagner/ Acting Secretary PWG.
