Thanks Victoria

I’ve made some tweaks to the OSGeo Africa slide. I’ll be at the AGM but only for the first hour so probably won’t be able to present that slide.

Enock, Msilikale, how about one of you presenting it? Or another volunteer?

Msilikale do you want to add something about plans for the next FOSS4G Africa?

We need a volunteer also to take the mantle of leading the OSGeo Africa community and to finally take it through the process of formal registration with OSGeo.  


PS: This community also has a Telegram channel https://t.me/osgeoafrica that was started around FOSS4G 2018 in Dar es Salaam.
