Dear CRO

I want to nominate:

Marco Minghini

email: marco.minghini86 at gmail.com


It is my great pleasure to nominate Marco Minghini (known as "Mingo") 
for OSGeo Charter membership.  Mingo has been an active advocate of Open 
Source GIS software and a regular presenter at FOSS4G events. Recently 
he was the co-organizer of the very successful FOSS4G 2015 Europe at 
Como, Italy. He has been working tirelessly to promote the development 
of Open Source software and data in academia and within the COST 
Networks (an EU funded inter-disciplinary network that involves almost 
30 countries) where he is an active member. In July he organized in Como 
an amazing Training School "FOSS4VGI - Using Free and Open Source 
Software with VGI: integration, analysis and visualisation" (supported 
by the "COST Action TD1202 - Mapping and the Citizen Sensor" 
initiative), gathering students and young scientists from all over 
Europe.  I have known and worked with Mingo for many years, starting 
from his bachelor thesis; he was one of my brightest students and is now 
an excellent researcher and promoter of Open Source geo.  Those who know 
Mingo know his big bright smile and his endless enthusiasm.  Please 
welcome Mingo as an OSGeo Charter member.

For the sake of simplicity I put him in CC, in such a way that he can 
directly confirm to be interested in such nomination.

Best regards.

Prof. Maria Antonia Brovelli
Vice Rector for Como Campus and GIS Professor
