It is my great pleasure to nominate Jeremy Morley for OSGeo Charter membership. I have known and worked with Jeremy for many years now and his help and support was key for expanding OSGeo in the UK. He is the cochair of OSGIS conference series and has been the co-chair of the very successful FOSS4G 2013 at Nottingham.
Jeremy is Theme Leader for Geospatial Science at the Nottingham Geospatial Institute. He has worked in the academic GIS sector since the mid-90s. Jeremy has promoted and researched Open GIS standards (through the OGC TC since 2000), data (UK Location Programme User Group) and software (hosted the “EOGEO” workshops, predecessors to FOSS4G, in 2000 & 2004). He has also been actively giving training programs (good example is the very successful GIS Open Source Summer School in Girona) , workshops, talks etc. He is also leading new module on our MSc GIScience called "Geospatial Information Services" at fully using OSGeoLive. This is a good example for other universities to follow in the future for their Master, undergraduate programs etc.
I am surprised that Jeremy is not already a charter member and i am sure not only the UK Chapter colleagues but also our Edu community will be happy to see him as a charter member.
