[OSGeo-Conf] FOSS4G Discount for Charter Members proposal

>From the beginning of the foundation, one of the main tenants of membership
was that the only additional benefit to Charter Membership was the ability
to vote for Board Members and new Charter Members. Other than that Charter
Members should (as things exist currently) not receive any other perks not
available to the general membership.

I am not opposed to trying to find ways to make it easier for active OSGeo
members to receive discounts to FOSS4G, but unless we really change the
nature of what a Charter Member is supposed to be, I don't think this is
the right avenue. One place to start that is common in almost every
conference is discounts for presenters.
