I had the opportunity to meet Asger a few years ago and I enjoyed his 
enthusiasm and openness towards his open source work. Over time, he has 
been participating to many foss4g events. Even more, I remember that at 
FOSS4G 2013, his map won 'Best open source integration' and 2. place in 
'Best overall cartographic display'.
He has been actively involved in organizing the first Danish QGis Dev 
Conference this year [1].
I think that through his interests, contributions and organizing 
activities, Asger deserves to be named a Charter Member of OSGeo.

All the best,
