Hi all,

It's  a great honour to nominate Iván Sánchez[1][2] (Spaniard now
living in Norway). He is well known by usual FOSS4G attendants by his
funny musicals (i.e. [3]) but Iván is much much more than a passionate
geonerd. He is one of the main promoters of Open Data and
OpenStreetMap in Spain (in fact he's currently the -exiled- president
of the OSM.es association); he was for a period member of the Boards
of Directors of the OSM Foundation and has leaded many activities
around OSM and Open Data in Spain. He usually presents FOSS4G projects
on conferences and is also well remembered by the Cake Test for Open
Data (specially when he brings cakes to smaller-than-FOSS4G

Iván is a great friend and I'm sure you'll agree he deserves joining
the Charter Membership.
