Charter Membership Elections

News Date: 
4 Nov 2011

OSGeo Community,

It is time to once again nominate new OSGeo charter members. We need you to pick out the folks you think would bring energy and interest to the OSGeo mission and bring their names forward!

Only OSGeo members can vote for OSGeo directors, and only OSGeo members can be OSGeo directors, so membership is a necessary gateway to more official involvement in the organization.

The process for Member selection is outlined here:

This year we are adding 20 new charter members and the deadline for nominations is November 17, 2010.

Please confirm with the nominated person first and send your nominations to cro at, outlining the name and contact e-mail of your nominee(s) and and paragraph describing why you are recommending this person as a Charter Member.

Please also feel free to cc: the nomination to the OSGeo discussion list - discuss at - so the community can be nudged along and have a sense of what is going on.

The new Member election will be held in the succeeding week and close on November 27. The results will be announced two days after that.

OSGeo Chief Returning Officer, 2011
