First of all impressive list of nominations. My hope is that all the would be directors of OSGeo Board from which ever background they come, give due importance to the education efforts. I believe this will be very important for the long term.  

The students of today will be the GIS leaders and decision makers of tomorrow. Having focus on education is key for global perspective, building collaboration, supporting local chapters and providing strategic vision for OSGeo for the future.

Charter members should carefully consider whom to vote - the board
should be representative in terms of global coverage, software project
diversity, educational efforts and fresh geodata management ideas.
