The TMF Reference Model Steering Committee comprises 14 people who are elected* by registered members of the Reference Model Project Team. Steering Committee members serve three-year terms which are set-up so that around a third of the Committee stand down each year. The Steering Committee is governed by the Steering Committee Charter.
Current members of the Committee are:
|Name||Company||Member Type||Term Expires|
|Dorte Frejwald Christiansen||NNIT||Vendor||31-Mar-2018|
|Jane Twitchen||Biogen Idec||Biopharma||31-Mar-2018|
|Eldin Rammell||Rammell Consulting||Consultant||31-Mar-2019|
|Jamie Toth||Daiichi Sankyo||Biopharma||31-Mar-2020|
|Scott McCulloch||BioMarin Pharmaceuticals||Biopharma||31-Mar-2020|
|Fran Ross||Paragon Consulting||Vendor||31-Mar-2020|
|Lisa Mulcahy||Mulcahy Consulting||Consultant||31-Mar-2020|
*Elections are conducted on a ‘first past the post‘ basis, with candidates receiving the most votes filling the vacancies available. However, the Charter limits the committee member composition for any one sector or voting block (e.g. BioPharma, CRO, Vendor, Consultant) to no more than 50% of the committee. If voting results in this 50% limit being reached, any further candidates from that block will be unable to take up a position irrespective of the number of votes cast for them. In these circumstances, candidates from other blocks with the next highest number of votes cast will join the committee.
