        Dear Trustees and LC,<br>
        <br>
        I bring your attention to <a href="http://open-stand.org" target="_blank">open-stand.org</a> which
        summarized as a statement of principles (<a href="http://open-stand.org/principles/" target="_blank">http://open-stand.org/principles/</a>)
        of a modern paradigm for standards development.&nbsp; <br>
        <ul>
          <li><strong>Due process.</strong>&nbsp;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.</li>
          <li><strong>Broad consensus.</strong>&nbsp;Processes allow for all
            views to be considered and addressed, such that agreement
            can be found across a range of interests.</li>
          <li><strong>Transparency.</strong> 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.</li>
          <li><strong>Balance.</strong> Standards activities are not
            exclusively dominated by any particular person, company or
            interest group.</li>
          <li><strong>Openness.</strong>&nbsp;Standards processes are open to
            all interested and informed parties.</li>
        </ul>
        As an agenda item I'd like to ask both the Trustees and LC to
        discuss the OpenStand and to consider Kantara support (<a href="http://open-stand.org/stand-with-us/" target="_blank">http://open-stand.org/stand-with-us/</a>)
        for this movement.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; <br>
        <br>
        Please consider the above at each groups earliest opportunity. <br>
        <br>
        Best Regards,<br clear="all">
