Unless anyone in the Conference Committee has any objections , may i request the OSGeo Board to have a discussion item on FOSS4G South America and endorse ( but no finance support) Lima team to run FOSS4G South America in 2018 and build up momentum for  annual regional event in South America modelling FOSS4G-Europe, FOSS4G-NA, FOSS4G-Asia etc. I  really hope from 2018, we will have regional events around the world and having South America and Africa starting regional events will be great to accelerate OSGeo around the world.

Maybe OSGeo Board can also provide a laison contact from Conference Commitee to give some direction to Lima team on this?

Let us make sure that the efforts put in by the Lima team is given opportunity in some form to accelerate OSGeo in South America.

Best wishes,

There is also FOSS4G Asia, which is very successfully and attracts many local (continental) people. I suggest you to contact them as well. And well,  for anything you need, contact me (chair of FOSS4G Europe 2015).

FOSS4G Lima team,

While you have not been selected for the international FOSS4G event,
please don't be discouraged. I suggest you (and the rest of South and
Central America) consider running an annual South/Central America
FOSS4G, similar to the very successful FOSS4G-North America and
FOSS4G-Europe, which run in parallel with the International FOSS4G.

It could rotate between South/Central American cities.

I think there is a great opportunity to make this happen.

Warm regards, Cameron
