I thought of this thread again because as I seek out nominees for the  
Board election, I've found at least three good visionary candidates  
that have declined to accept my nomination for them.  Just because we  
have global representation in charter members, doesn't mean that  
everyone is willing or able to be on the board.  The most frequent  
response I get is that people are too busy or focused on other  
aspects of supporting OSGeo.  I believe it is easy to forget this fact.
