I would like to nominate Professor Maria Brovelli for the board of directors.
She is very well know in the community for her passion for open source
software and open data,
leader of numerous initiatives, including the latest outreach to United Nations,
hosting FOSS4G Europe in 2015 and organizing several open source and
open data sessions
at the ISPRS congres in Prague in 2016.
Her leadership and contributions to OSGeo were recognized by Sol Katz
award in 2015
and she is on the advisory board and one of the regional directors of
GeoForAll initiative.
She advised many students who made significant contributions to
several OSGeo projects
including GRASS GIS and understands both the community building and
the software development issues.
I feel strongly that she will be able to take on the challenging tasks
and often complex
decision making that comes with the the board of directors membership
given her experience as
Vice Rector for the Como Campus of Politecnico di Milano. See her page
for more information
