the nomination period for new OSGeo Charter Members ended yesterday.
A big "Thank You" to all who actively contributed by nominating
candidates and supporting their nominations! Another big Thank You to
all candidates for representing their OSGeo community aspect at the
board level and for electing a dedicated board of directors.
As CRO I am very happy to say that the nomination period worked
smoothly (except that almost nobody cared to email the nomination to
the CRO address as requested... :-).
We now have 22 high level candidates  but only 20 open slots, a
number which I simply copied over from last year when I prepared the
schedule for 2012.
As per our "New Membership Process"  we can add between 10% and one
third of the existing Charter Membership, in this year this would be
13 to 42 members. My proposal to the board is to accept all 22 members
instead of running an election which would simply exclude two
potential charter members on a more or less arbitrary basis.
Therefore I defer the start of the election process for two days in
the hope that the board agrees with my proposal and we do not need to
have Charter Member elections at all.
Best regards & have a nice weekend,
