It is my pleasure to nominate Dr. Rafael Moreno-Sanchez, from USA, as an OSGeo Charter Member.  Rafael  is working at the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado Denver, USA [1].

Rafael is also very active contributor in the OSGeo’s GeoForAll initiative . Rafael Moreno led the effort to establish the FOSS4G lab which opened in 2014 in the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado , USA  to fulfill a growing demand for education, research and service in Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial applications (FOSS4G) development and applications by citizens, businesses, governments, educators, students, researchers and geospatial working professionals in the Front Range of Colorado and beyond at University of Colorado Denver and constantly assisting educators and students.

Rafael also initiated and leads the GeoForAll's "Open Geospatial Science & Applications" webinar series [2].  These webinars (and recordings) are viewed by hundreds of people around the world and helped us to spread the ideas and philosophy of Openness in GeoEducation and Research. We are very grateful for his contributions and help.
