Dear all,

I am very pleased to nominate Helena Mitasova for one of the OSGeo
board of directors seats.

Helena is in Open Source GIS since the '80s and a strong and long term
contributor not only to the GRASS GIS project, but to Open Source
geospatial technologies in general. I know Helena for 10 years, others
in this forum maybe for even longer.

She provides a valuable link to academia and also brings perspective
from academia. Not just North Carolina State University, but she meets
with people from other universities as well, including Michael
Goodchild. She wants to promote OSGeo in UCGIS - University Consortium
for GIScience), and can also bring some insight into US government
sponsored GIS-research (federal and NC state). She can provide
connections to East Europe, too.

She wants to contribute to the core curriculum project of OSGeo and
has a lot of experience with graduate students from a great variety of
disciplines, from engineering, natural resources, computer science,

Best regards

 Markus Neteler
