Article 14: TP and WG election of Chair and Vice Chair(s)

a) TP elections

Regular elections shall be held every two years.

The Chairs and Vice Chair(s) shall be elected by the TP from amongst the Members or Partners Type 2 representatives. The TP shall have a maximum of three Vice Chairs. The Chair and Vice Chair(s) of the TP shall be confirmed by the SC. An endeavor shall be made to maintain Partner, Member and regional balance in the election of the Chair and Vice Chairs.

A candidate for election shall provide a letter of support from the Members or Partners Type 2 that he/she represents. The deadline for nominations is 14 days prior to the point when an election takes place.

If a Chair or Vice Chair changes the Member or Partners Type 2 that he/she represents (e.g., job change, merger or acquisition) during his/her term of office, a new letter of support shall be provided. If the change of company affiliation is due to a move to another company, then the decision for the Chair or Vice Chair to continue in office under the same terms of election shall be made by consensus of the TP. If consensus cannot be achieved, an election shall be held for the office.

The Chair and Vice Chair(s) shall be elected for a two-year term of office. The Chair and Vice Chair(s) may offer themselves for election for a second consecutive term. Exceptionally, they may offer themselves for further consecutive terms, subject to the following:

- A two week deadline that expires at noon UTC on the Friday which falls between 20 and 14 days prior to the first day of the meeting at which elections are due to be held shall be established.

- A Chair is not permitted to stand for another consecutive term if another candidate is announced via the oneM2M web site or via the relevant oneM2M email reflector prior to this deadline.

- A Chair is permitted to stand for another consecutive term only after this deadline if another candidate has not been announced.

- A Vice Chair is not permitted to stand for another consecutive term in a Vice Chair position for which there is a candidate announced via the oneM2M web site or via the relevant oneM2M email reflector prior to this deadline.

- A Vice Chair is permitted to stand for another consecutive term only after this deadline if the number of candidatures is less than the number of Vice Chair positions.

There is no restriction on a Vice Chair whose term of office is due to expire offering himself for the position of Chair; neither is there any restriction on a Chair whose term of office is due to expire offering himself as a Vice Chair.

Should a TP Chair or Vice Chair be absent for six consecutive months, or 3 consecutive TP meetings, whichever is the longer period, they shall be deemed to have resigned their position, and that position shall be declared vacant and elections shall be initiated to take place at the next TP meeting.

Should a TP Chair or Vice Chair position become vacant for reasons other than expiration of term of office, an election shall be conducted to fill the unexpired term. This election shall be conducted at a meeting of the TP, and shall be announced in the agenda according to the provisions of Article 22.

When such an election is held to fill the office of Chair, and one or more of the group’s Vice Chairs intend to stand for election to that position, the announcement shall also indicate that there will be an election to fill the position of Vice Chair(s) in the event that a Vice Chair be elected to the office of Chair. If, at the election, the Vice Chair is elected to the office of Chair, that individual shall become Chair immediately, and the position of Vice Chair thus being vacant, an election shall be held for the office of Vice Chair.

When such an election is held to fill the office of a Vice Chair and the Chair of the group intends to stand for election to that position, the announcement shall also indicate that there will be an election to fill the position of the Chair in the event that the Chair be elected to the office of the Vice Chair. If, at the election, the Chair is elected to the office of Vice Chair, the position of Chair thus being vacant; an election shall be held for the office of the Chair.

The term of office for a Chair or Vice Chair elected at an election is a partial term lasting until the end of the current term. A partial term of office does not count towards the two consecutive term limit.

Following election by the TP, the TP Chair and Vice Chair shall be appointed by the SC on the recommendation of the TP.

b) WG elections

The provisions concerning the election of WG Chair and Vice Chair shall be as for TP Chair and Vice Chair as defined in a) above, with the following differences:

• Each WG shall have a maximum of two Vice Chairs;

• WG elections shall be held when the corresponding terms of office expire or when an existing Chair or Vice Chair resigns;

• WG elections need not be synchronized within the WG (i.e., elections for Chair and each Vice Chair may occur at different times), across different WGs, or with the regular TP elections;

• WG Chair and Vice Chair(s) are elected for a period of two years, or the lifespan of the WG; whichever is shorter (and not, as is the case with elections in TP, for the unexpired period of the present term of office).

Note: For this reason, elections for WG Chair and Vice Chairs are likely to become spread over a period of time, rather than being grouped like the TP regular elections.

When a new WG is established, the TP is responsible for appointing a convener for the first two meetings.

Following election by the WG, the WG Chair and Vice Chair should be confirmed by the TP on the recommendation of the WG.
