  4. Homework
    • Proposed changes to GOM from ArB:
    09.01 The Technical Steering Committee (TSC)
    A Technical Steering Committee (TSC) shall be established to facilitate the coordination and activities of the Working Group. It shall be comprised of the Co-Chairs from each of the four Steering Divisions (SD), two Affiliate representatives, and appropriate HL7 staff. The SD Co-Chairs shall share a single vote at the TSC for the purposes of formal motions; but otherwise both will be fully participating members of the TSC. The Chief Technology Officer (CTO) as well as the ARB Chair and Vice Chair Co-Chairs of the Architecture Review Board (ARB) shall be ex officio members with vote. The ARB Chair and Vice Chair ARB Co-Chairs shall share a single vote on formal motions.
    09.03.01 Composition
    The ARB shall have a Chair and Vice Chair two Co-Chairs, who shall continue the business of the ARB in the Chair’s absence, appointed by the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) with the approval of the TSC. The ARB shall have such additional members as deemed appropriate by the CTO, ARB Chair and Vice Chair ARB Co-Chairs to support productivity and task load based on the availability of willing candidates with appropriate skill sets subject to TSC approval.
    There shall be no formal constraints or requirements for representation of any Work Group, Steering Division, or Organizational or Affiliate member. ARB candidates shall be chosen by the CTO, ARB Chair and Vice Chair ARB Co-Chairs. The TSC shall ensure that appointments to the ARB are consistent with the goals and objectives currently defined for the ARB and best serve the interests and responsibilities of HL7. While it is desirable that the ARB be representative of all the various communities involved in HL7, the CTO and TSC formally acknowledge that the primary criteria for ARB membership are qualifications and commitment of time and effort.
    The ARB may, at its discretion, solicit the contribution of specific expertise in support of its activities by inviting select individuals to participate as ad hoc members with vote for the term of the specific activity or project.
    09.03.02 Criteria for Membership Qualifications
    Candidates for membership in the ARB must recognize the importance of, and have a commitment to, enterprise architecture as a critical success factor for HL7. They must be current members of HL7 or an HL7 Affiliate with strong written and verbal communication skills and expertise in at least one, but preferably both, of the following areas as assessed by the CTO:
    1. Large scale enterprise-level architecture contexts with a focus on achieving working interoperability between software components/interfaces in both intra- and inter-enterprise contexts. Interoperability contexts include both traditional “messaging” exchanges of static semantics as well as more complex, multi-component scenarios involving both static semantics and dynamic behavioral interactions.
    2. HL7 “core infrastructure” components including complex data types, vocabulary binding, structured documents, methodology and modeling, infrastructure and messaging, implementation and conformance, etc. Commitment
    Candidates shall provide documentation of support for their participation on the ARB from their employers or a like statement of their personal commitment if individual members of HL7. Members of the ARB are expected to:
    a. participate in 75% of weekly conference calls
    a. Attend a majority of weekly conference calls.
    b. dedicate 6 - 10 hours each week, in addition to conference calls, to ArB deliverables
    b. demonstrate active participation through some combination of the following:
    Meaningful contribution to deliverables through authoring , modeling or review.
    Individuals provide expertise that can be drawn upon when needed.
    c. attend at least two of the three Working Group Meetings each year
    The CTO of HL7 may, at his/her discretion, grant a waiver of the WGM attendance requirement to any ARB member in good standing who has encountered hardship (e.g. lack of funding) in attending Working Group meetings provided either or are met. Trial Participation
    Candidates wishing to be considered for full membership in the ARB may be expected or invited to participate in ARB discussions as ad hoc individuals prior to becoming a full member to ensure their ability to meet the expected commitments and demonstrate the appropriate qualifications. This will allow ‘new’ HL7 members to fully participate in the ARB and contribute to the work even if they are not yet personally known by the CTO, ARB Chair or Vice Chair ARB Co-Chairs.
    09.03.03 Term of Membership
    The CTO, ARB Chair and Vice Chair ARB Co-Chairs shall consider staggering appointments to the ARB to ensure continuity of knowledge of recent history and ongoing goals and objectives of the ARB.
    ' ARB Chair and Vice Chair ARB Co-Chairs'
    There shall be no limit on the duration of service of the ARB Chair and Vice Chair ARB Co-Chairs subject to the approval of the TSC. Other Members
    All members of the ARB shall serve a two year term from date of appointment, without term limits, subject to renewal at the discretion of the CTO, ARB Chair and Vice Chair ARB Co-Chairs with the approval of the TSC. Notification of Renewal
    The CTO shall provide two months’ notice to the HL7 membership and HL7 Affiliates when certain ARB appointments are subject to renewal. Comments relevant to the renewal action may be submitted during this period for consideration by the CTO, ARB Chair and Vice Chair ARB Co-Chairs prior to making their recommendations on renewal to the TSC.
    09.03.05 Removal of Member
    Any ARB member who – in the opinion of the CTO, ARB Chair or Vice Chair or ARB Co-Chairs -- is unable to satisfy the expected commitment based on both meeting attendance records and general effectiveness of participation may, with approval by the TSC, be removed from the ARB at any point during their term.
    09.03.06 Conduct of Meetings
    All ARB meetings shall be open to any interested party. Minutes shall be taken at all meetings and posted on the ARB wiki. HL7 and the SDO community in general are free to comment, criticize, or raise additional issues.
