Call for Board Candidates is open!
The OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG invites you to join four (4) of your fellow colleagues and contemporaries to represent a collective membership of over 500 companies dedicated to promoting, shaping and leading the future of the Oracle family of applications. As an OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG board member, you join a dedicated team of professional users working together to:
- facilitate training, education, and networking among the user community
- influence Oracle on product direction and strategy
- be a conduit for recommended enhancements to Oracle products or processes
- provide feedback to Oracle from the user community
The OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG is seeking four (4) diligent, resourceful and dedicated professionals to help lead our association into the future. Each board member is elected for a 2-year term and will join four (4) other current board members who will be serving their remaining terms. To ensure continuity of the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG's direction and strategy, we do not replace our entire board membership at the same time. Rather, every 2 years a portion of the board is re-elected. Regular participation in conference calls is required as well as attendance at board meetings and more frequent meetings leading up to meetings like COLLABORATE. This averages to approximately 2 to 4 volunteer hours per month and is essential for the board to function properly and to be successful in all of its endeavors. As a board member, one needs to support the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG goals by taking an enthusiastic role in the activities that help continually provide value to the Oracle user community. Giving a presentation at OAUG COLLABORATE annual conferences, mentoring new members and encouraging other users to participate in the EPM/Hyperion SIG and the OAUG are just a few ways that board members can display leadership to the greater EPM/Hyperion SIG membership and contribute to the user group’s growth and success.
Application Process: If you would like to help shape the future direction of the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG, please include the following information in an e-mail or Word document and submit via e-mail to Geo/SIG Manager at no later than Monday, June 25, 2018.

Special Notes / Requirements / Qualifications* Elections are for individual volunteers, not the companies that employ them. The person elected will be a board member. It is recommended that individuals seek employer approval to run before submitting themselves as a candidate.
* No more than one person per company may serve on the board at the same time.
* In order to help maintain an independent forum, Oracle employees are not eligible for board membership, (but the board does work closely with several Oracle Employees).
* While the companies are not elected, candidates, or the company they are employed with, must be OAUG members in good standing in order to be elected.
* Ballots will be sent to email addresses of individuals who are members of the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG and meet the above requirements. This will include a voting key. Voting keys are a unique identifier that ensures only you can vote and that the vote can only be submitted once. If a voting key is used more than once, all votes will be discarded.
* Elections will end on July 11, 2018. The OAUG will tally all votes and provide information about the newly elected board members to the OAUG EPM/Hyperion SIG by July 23, 2018. Results will be announced to membership July 25, 2018. We look forward to receiving your response. Please contact Janelle Daniels, OAUG Geo/SIG Manager, at , or 404-789-3167 if you have any questions.
