Greetings:
 
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.
 
Many   thanks.
 
Bill  Wagner/ Acting Secretary PWG.
