I would like to nominate César Medina [1] from Chile for OSGeo Charter 

When I first met César a few years back he was already an OSGeo and 
FOSS4G enthusiast. Since then he has helped to raise the awareness of 
the use of Free and Open Source Software in the Geo-Community in Chile 
and other South American countries. And he additionally contributes to 
the community on international level.

He will continue to promote initiatives related to Free Software for 
GIS, with events, meetings and the "geoinquietos Chile" meeting in 
Chile. He has helped organising the First Conference Chilean gvSIG [2] 
and initiated a first FOSS4G South America in 2011 [3].

He would enrich the OSGeo community and would help to boost the uptake 
of the community in Chile.
