We made it! OCP is now in the Testimonial Phase of the Incubation Committee (IC) election process. The nomination phase of this election lasted longer than we expected due to the Tiered Membership Program though we are now ready to start the next phase of elections.
Tiered Membership has now been rolled out and all members have been contacted and given the opportunity to sign the new membership agreement and update their membership levels. If you have questions about your membership level please email us with your questions.
The Foundation would like to thank those who have been nominated for their patience and willingness to sit on the OCP Incubation Committee(IC). For some this will be a first time opportunity and for others this will be a continuation of their commitment to OCP. Regardless, we extend our appreciation and thanks!

- Aaron Sullivan - Compliance and Interoperability Seat
