Sorry for the delay - I missed the original email in my inbox.

Yes, we should be able to address this request.  Per the Memorandum of
Understanding signed between OGC and OSGEO, we can issue up to six one year
OGC Individual Memberships on a complimentary basis to OSGEO members.  There
are only three conditions that need to be met here, and only one of them is
your responsibility.

1.  OSGEO must approve the nomination of an OSGEO member to receive an OGC
Individual membership (Arnulf has essentially confirmed his support per his
email below)
2.  There can be no more than six complementary Individual memberships
related to the OGC / OSGEO at any one time (I believe we have slots
available -- I'll confirm this today)
3.  You meet the conditions of the OGC Individual membership as described on
our website. Please visit:


If you have any questions after reviewing this material, please contact me
directly.  Otherwise, please fill out the application, and send it to our
Wayland office.  Make a note on the application that your "Individual
Membership in the OGC is complimentary per the OGC/OSGEO MOU"
