Dear Trustees and LC,

I bring your attention to open-stand.org<http://open-stand.org> which summarized as a statement of principles (http://open-stand.org/principles/) of a modern paradigm for standards development.

  *   Due process. Decisions are made with equity and fairness among participants. No one party dominates or guides standards development. Standards processes are transparent and opportunities exist to appeal decisions. Processes for periodic standards review and updating are well defined.
  *   Broad consensus. Processes allow for all views to be considered and addressed, such that agreement can be found across a range of interests.
  *   Transparency. Standards organizations provide advance public notice of proposed standards development activities, the scope of work to be undertaken, and conditions for participation. Easily accessible records of decisions and the materials used in reaching those decisions are provided. Public comment periods are provided before final standards approval and adoption.
  *   Balance. Standards activities are not exclusively dominated by any particular person, company or interest group.
  *   Openness. Standards processes are open to all interested and informed parties.
As an agenda item I'd like to ask both the Trustees and LC to discuss the OpenStand and to consider Kantara support (http://open-stand.org/stand-with-us/) for this movement.  This is not a monetary commitment but a statement of support for the principles. While Kantara Initiative is not a Standards body, organizations like Kantara, industry groups, user groups ,ect depend upon the consensus based and transparent development of open standards.

Please consider the above at each groups earliest opportunity.

Best Regards,

Joni Brennan
