  • Help Lead as a Board Member for the Oracle Transportation Management Special Interest Group (OTM)

    Call for Candidates Submission Deadline: Midnight EST, November 1st, 2022

    The OTM SIG invites you to join your colleagues and contemporaries to represent a collective membership of professionals dedicated to promoting, shaping and leading the future of Oracle Transportation Management.  As an OTM SIG Board Member, you join a dedicated team of professionals working together to:

    • Help promote the ideals and activities of the OATUG in the region
    • Enable communication with Oracle on direction and strategy
    • Share information and experiences among users, managers, and IT professionals
    • Be a conduit for recommended enhancements to Oracle products or processes
    • Provide feedback to Oracle from the user community
    • Facilitate conferences, training and education among the user community
    • Provide representation for the OTM SIG at national and local events

    The Call for Candidates

    The OTM SIG bylaws authorize 18 client voting members, 6 partner non-voting members, 1 Oracle liaison, and 2 Technology positions on the Board of Directors. 

    To ensure continuity of the OTM SIG direction and strategy, we do not replace our entire board of directors at the same time.  Rather, every year a portion of the board is re-elected.  The 2022 election will fill 10 open seats:  3 Clients for Americas, 3 Clients for Regional, 1 Partner Americas, 1 Partner Regional, 1 Technology Partner Americas, and 1 Technology Partner Regional.

    OTM SIG Board Organization

    The OTM SIG Board positions include:

    • 9 Americas Client positions, 3 Americas Partner/Consultancy positions, 1 Technology position
    • 9 Regional Client positions, 3 Regional Partner/Consultancy positions, 1 Technology position
    • 1 Oracle Liaison

    A Board Chair for Americas and Regional is elected by the OTM SIG board following each election.  Preference will be given to a director who has served at least one year.  In the best interest of the OTM SIG and to maintain the focus of the user-based community, the chair role is limited to client candidates.

    Regional positions will focus on outreach in the APAC/EMEA regions to gain a global presence with the OTM SIG.

    The individuals elected to the Americas and Regional Technology positions will be members who work for companies with software or technology tools which interface or extend off the OTM / GTM software.  Technology members must be an Oracle Partner and sell their solutions through Oracle Cloud Marketplace.

    Expectations of OTM SIG Board Members

    Regular participation in quarterly conference calls is required, as well as weekly board meetings and more frequent meetings leading up to our annual conference.  This averages approximately 4-12 volunteer hours per month (depending on Conference planning activities) and is essential for the board to function properly and to be successful in all of its endeavors.  The board may have one in-person annual planning meeting per year prior to the OTM Conference.

    Election Guidelines

     Several changes have been made to the electoral process to ensure that the OTM SIG remains an independent, user-driven board.  The following voting requirements have been implemented to ensure that the election is fair and not skewed by any single company:

    Voting shall be restricted to individuals that meet the following guidelines:

    • Registered OTM SIG member by Midnight November 7, 2022.
    • Employee of a company that is designated as a current or future end user of Oracle Transportation Management.  Employees of consulting companies, including Oracle, and Software Providers will be ineligible to vote.

    Ballots will be sent to email addresses of individuals that are current OTM SIG members and 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.

    Based on the honor system, the first question asked on the ballot will be "Is your company a current or future end user of OTM?”, and a no answer will be our flag to eliminate the vote from the tally.

    Voters will enter their name/company/and email address on the ballot, when the election is closed, those who answered no to the end user question will be thrown out.  Board members will also review the results and have the right to throw out votes that do not meet the guidelines.

     We look forward to receiving your response.  Please contact OATUG staff at or +1 404.760.4248 if you have any questions.
