Volunteers

We ask interest volunteers to please join the marketing committee. We would like to have a healthy mix of representatives from across the OSGeo community take part in this outreach exercise.

April Callout: We would like to explicitly ask for a member of the GeoForAll community to join this outreach activity. GeoForAll is our educational outreach initiative performed in collaboration with our partners at ICA, ISPRS and UN-GIS.

April Callout: We are also in need of a representative for OSGeo Local Chapters who provide the all important personal touch for our community outreach efforts.

Finally there may be an opportunity to help with content migration (to the new website or the wiki as appropriate).

Initiative Sponsors

OSGeo would like to thank the following sponsors for their support:

Sponsorship

OSGeo projects and initiatives may be sponsored directly, the marketing committee would love your support of this rebranding/website exercise; we cannot think of a better way to assist in the growth of the OSGeo community. We feel that it is important to role out the new website for the FOSS4G 2017 Boston event. To meet this goal we have set a very aggressive schedule outlined in the EOI. While the OSGeo board has committed funds to this exercise, they have set us a solid fundraising target of $20,000 USD which we intend to meet with sponsorship.

The marketing committee would like to offer sponsors:

  • Key Sponsors supporting this activity with $2000 USD or more will be thanked in each blog post, status update and presentation sent to the community.
    • geocat.net
    • boundlessgeo.com
  • Sponsors providing $1000 USD or more will have their name and logo used in for the creation of wireframes and mock ups by the vendor. This is a high-visibility placement for your brand, as the deliverable is of great interest to OSGeo members (reviewed in detail by enthusiasts world wide.)
    • www.gaia3d.com
  • Supporters providing $500 USD or more are acknowledged in a monthly blog post and in final presentation to the community.
