I would like to second the nomination for Daniel.  After having had the pleasure of working with him on the current board, I frankly can't imagine how we would function without him.  He is always a voice of reason and he has taken ownership of managing all of the financial tracking and planning that has made us successful.

The growing number of local chapters and local events shows how important they are to help spread the OSGeo vision to local and non-English speaking communities.

Some continents/regions are not represented yet in the list of nominees. It would be awesome of we had at least one candidate from each continent/region.
