This is a reminder to vote on the revised charter of the PWG Semantic Model Workgroup.  Participation in this workgroup has been declining to the point that little had been accomplished on most of the previously identified projects. This effort to re-charter the workgroup is intended to clearly define the mission of the workgroup, and to provide a firm basis on which to consider further projects.  We encourage all voting PWG members to either confirm or object to the proposed charter by voting as instructed below. Insufficient votes would  suggest that there is insufficient interest in the Semantic Model to justify maintaining an active workgroup, in which case it appears that IPP would be the only remaining active PWG workgroup.

Thank you.
Bill Wagner, Proposed Secretary, Semantic Model Workgroup
