Dear CRO,
It’s my great pleasure to nominate Dr. Junyoung Choi[1] as new OSGeo 
Charter Member.
He has been actively involved in open source GIS activities including 
translation and organising conferences since 2000. As a FOSS4G Seoul LOC 
member last year, he contributed much of his time and resources to the 
success of FOSS4G Seoul. Especially he had played a key role in 
organising the first UN special session at FOSS4G Seoul.[2] With a 
result of his great efforts to promote open source GIS in his 
organisation and Korea, LH Corp[3] and OSGeo signed a MoU[4] last year 
for developing collaboration opportunities for academia, industry and 
government organisations in Open Source GIS software and data in Korea. 
And as a follow-up of this MoU, LH Corp and OSGeo Korean Chapter will 
co-organise the FOSS4G Korea 2016.[5] As a researcher, he has carried 
out many works relating smart city, big data and UN Sustainable 
Development Goals(SDGs) using open geospatial technologies.[6]

I absolutely believe Dr. Choi will bring in new perspective and passion 
to OSGeo.
Kind regards, 신상희
