Eli and Conference Committee,

We are very closely approaching making a decision on the location for the
2016 FOSS4G North America  event. As many of you may have noticed, we have
limited our choices to Raleigh, NC, and Philadelphia, PA. We are now at the
point in the process where we are trying to finalize contract negotiations
with the venues before we are able to announce the 2016 location. We are
hoping to be able to complete this process by August 7th barring any
significant issues arising but this may well take until the 14th.

We have been thrilled by the overwhelming excitement that we have seen from
both the Raleigh and the Philly communities in bringing the North America
event to their communities and would like to make sure that they have the
ability to come together to put together an LOI should they wish for the
International event in 2017.

The FOSS4G North America selection committee would like to ask that the
date for LOI's for the 2017 international event be pushed back to August
21st in order that either city can have time to create an LOI in the event
that they are not selected for the 2016 NA event.

We are extremely excited to have such a strong group of candidates for all
these events! Please feel free to ask Andrew Ross or myself if you have any
questions regarding the FOSS4GNA process.


David (OSGeo Conference Committee and FOSS4GNA Selection Committee member)
