We are pleased to welcome the new OSGeo President Angelos Tzotsos.
Angelos is well known in the community and active in many projects. He
is part of the OSGeo Board since 2016 and he served as OSGeo
Vice-President since 2018. His leadership will be an asset going forward
We decided to accompany the OSGeo President with four Vice-Presidents to
share all the commitments an OSGeo President has to satisfy and
represent OSGeo at events all over the world; we therefore also welcome
Helena Mitasova, Vicky Vergara, Victoria Rautenbach and Codrina Maria
Ilie as Vice-Presidents of OSGeo.
The Board would like to thank Michael Smith for again volunteering for
the role of OSGeo treasurer for another year and continuing to help
OSGeo with financial matters.
The Board would also like to thank Astrid Emde for again volunteering
for the role of OSGeo Secretary.
Till Adams volunteered to act as Chair of the Board. This is a
non-executive position helping the board follow up on decisions,
schedule meetings and keeping the board on track.

OSGeo Board who all have contributed their time and efforts to help
build up this amazing community.
