Discussion to TSC (was: TD) Deliverations
The chair discussed the approval last week by the HL7 Board of all four recommendations from the T3F in regards to the "Technical Directorate". As previously communicated, these were approved with modest changes:
- The name was changed to Technical Steering Committee from "Technical Directorate", and thus becomes recommendations for restructuring the TSC rather than a new group.
- Recommendations that the TSC Chiar be named an ex officio voting Board member are being advanced by the Structure and Governance Task Force.
- Elections should allow 30-day periods (accomplished by overlapping SD elections and Affiliate nominations)
- Announcement to be by several venues and coordinated by HQ
The "Board Decision Summary" from the T3F was revised and circulated. This includes the new election schedule.
The primary document has been updated and is being maintained as Revised HL7 Technical Steering Committee on the Wiki.
During discussion we discussed whether the Affiliate votes for TSC representatives would be one vote per affiliate or cast by the number of votes listed in the by-laws by affiliate size. It was the T3F consensus that the latter process should be followed.
We agreed to tackle the issues of communications with the T3F (now) and TSC (future) at as the primary topic on next weeks call.
