Hi Jody,

the MoU between the OGC and OSGeo is still active and "automatically 
renewed on an annual basis until terminated in writing by either Party". 

We might need to update the original "Alternate Liaisons", I will take 
care of this. Who would take this role from the OSGeo side?

As you need an OGC logo, please check at the following website, there 
you can find the necessary logos. If you need more or different input, 
please contact my colleague Simon Chester, OGC's Communication 
Coordinator (in cc) - 

I will be in Paris at the FOSS4G-Europe and my colleague Luis Bermudez 
will attend and present at the FOSS4G in Boston. We will have plenty of 
opportunities to catch up in person with the OSGeo Board and community, 
if there are any additional and open questions. Otherwise we also can 
set up a phone call to discuss any additional ideas.

Bye and sunny greetings,

Athina Trakas
