Wecome Bart, Jáchym, Jorge, Gérald to the board. I look forward to
working with you over the next year.
Ian and Michale, thank you for running. You are both very experienced
OSGeo members and I do hope to continue working with you in this forum.
Bart, Jáchym, Jorge, Gérald,
If you haven't already done so, I suggest updating your OSGeo Advocate
profiles to reflect that you are board members.
Peter, Michael, Mark, Jo,
Could you please also update your profiles to reflect that you are now
(This should just be a case of changing the buttons under your name)
It is quite easy for us to collect our Advocate profiles onto the list
of board members here:
If we all agree, I propose that we do so.
