On behalf of the board, we accept your resignation.

I know this is difficult for you, but I also know that I speak for the whole community in thanking you for your work over the years and in looking forward to more good things from you in the future.

> Hello everyone,

> I have also resigned from the Conference Committee (email:

> let FOSS4G continue to be the great event that it is.
> I feel positive that OSGeo and FOSS4G will continue to grow (we can see
> that now as many other FOSS4G events are starting around the globe).
> Personally, I will continue to focus my work and passion on a few
> specific OSGeo software: mostly MapServer.  I plan on continuing my hard

> So I may not be a visible OSGeo leader in the future, but I'll still be

> Thank you for letting me be a part of the Board since 2009, it has been
