I'm not quite sure what you're discussing.  Are you talking about the
financial oversight role that has happened in some past year?  Or are
you talking about a Board member who gives reports to the Board?

This and really all OSGeo infrastructure requests or questions go
through an OSGeo SAC ticket,

You bring up Boston which is great.  You'll want to coordinate with
them until the conclusion of the 2017 event.
