I would like to nominate Jeff McKeena to the OSGeo Board of Directors. Jeff has been an OSGeo Board member, a founding member of OSGeo, OSGeo Conference Committee chair, MapServer PSC member, FOSS4g Workshop Committee member and founding co-chair of the OSGeo Ottawa chapter. Jeff is very active in the MapServer, GDAL, FOSS4G, and OSGeo communities. He is responsible for running the ever popular WMS Benchmarking effort. Jeff is a tireless advocate for open source, open collaboration and is a big (ha!) welcoming presences in the OSGeo community for many first-timers. Jeff is responsible for the very popular MS4W Mapserver distribution, which is a mainstay for windows users of MapServer. Jeff is a graduate of the prestigious COGS (http://www.cogs.ns.ca/) and is the president of Gateway Geomatics. He has worked extensively with many international OSGeo chapters over the years. And he is a damn nice guy.
