Hi dear cro,

I would like to nominate Marie Silvestre as a Charter Member for OSGeo.
Marie does not have the chance to be able to travel to every and each FOSS4G,
but she is for long a strong advocate of FOSS4G.

She is a research engineer in GIS for the CNRS at Pierre and Marie Curie
University since 2006, its main work focus on water quality modelling of large

She initiated and performed the complete redesign and recoding of the model
she works on to use only Opensource GIS. She makes a great job at promoting
the use of FOSS in GIS among researchers and students in the university and
gives twice a year a 4-days training course on GIS with QGIS and GRASS.

She has been an early enthusiast for OSGeo and its Francophone Local Chapter
and has been an active member of translation projects such as the OSGeo
website and Journal.

Since then she became the unique and coordinator of the French translation
team for QGIS documentation and website, hard work.
