About OASIS:
OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information 
Standards) is a not-for-profit, international consortium that drives 
the development, convergence, and adoption of e-business standards. The 
consortium produces more Web services standards than any other 
organization along with standards for security, e-business, and 
standardization efforts in the public sector and for 
application-specific markets. Founded in 1993, OASIS has more than 
5,000 participants representing over 600 organizations and individual 
members in 100 countries.

OASIS is distinguished by its transparent governance and operating 
procedures. Members themselves set the OASIS technical agenda, using a 
lightweight process expressly designed to promote industry consensus 
and unite disparate efforts. Completed work is ratified by open ballot. 
Governance is accountable and unrestricted. Officers of both the OASIS 
Board of Directors and Technical Advisory Board are chosen by 
democratic election to serve two-year terms. Consortium leadership is 
based on individual merit and is not tied to financial contribution, 
corporate standing, or special appointment.
