Hi all: I would like to nominate Micah Wengren [1] for OSGeo Charter
Membership.  Micah is with the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration and has been a proponent of open source at NOAA (GeoNode,
GeoServer) since 2007. He has been a core committer to the GeoNode project
since 2014.

More recently, he has been active in the open data community, deploying,
developing, and supporting open source software for data discovery within
NOAA and in supporting other US Federal agencies through implementation of
the Federal GeoCloud interagency pilot project from 2012 to 2015.  Currently
he contributes to the open source software ecosystem of the US Integrated
Ocean Observing System (IOOS) [2] to publish ocean observations and forecast
products for US coastal waters.

Micah would be an asset to OSGeo charter membership given his background and
interest in FOSS4G.
