I would like to nominate Lluis Vicens [1], as a candidate in the
forthcoming Charter Member election of OSGeo.

Lluis' strong commitment and the importance of his contributions to de 
development and promotion of FOSS4G are well known. Some of his "merits" are:

1) Member of the SIGTE [2] project team (Girona University GIS and remote 
sensing service). There is a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between OSGeo 
and SIGTE [3] since September 2011.

2) Coordinator and organizer of the "Jornadas de SIG Libre" (Libre GIS days), 
which are held every year since 2007 at the University of Girona [4]. The 
'Jornadas de GIS Libre' of Girona is one of the most important annual 
international FOSS4G events and the most important Spanish FOSS4G one.

3) Lluis tutors some of the modules of the prestigious UNIGIS courses
organized by the University of Girona every year since 1999 [5] and
teaches FOSS4G courses at the international University of Girona Summer 
School, and also through "FormaSIG, the free GIS Learning Platform" [7].

4) He is one of the founders and one of the most active members of OSGeo-es, the Spanish-speaking 
local chapter of OSGeo.

Therefore, I think that promoting Lluis up to a OSGeo charter membership role 
would be of worth to the OSGeo community.
