A huge +1 👍 for María. She is what OSGeo needs to move forward into
diversity and expand our network to new communities. We all want a more
inclusive OSGeo family! Don't we?

> Name: María Arias de Reyna
> Country of Residence: Spain
> It is my pleasure and honour to nominate María Arias de Reyna[1] for the
> Board of Directors of OSGeo. You may remember that I nominated María
> last year for the Board, but since then she has gone on to give several
> great keynote talks at various events around the world, bringing
> much-needed discussions of diversity and sharing to the forefront of
> events.
> María is well known in the OSGeo community for her relentless efforts as
> a core contributor for the GeoNetwork project, and for her longtime
> contributions to the SIG Libre conference (the Spanish FOSS4G). Locally
> she is very active through the OSGeo microchapter network Geoinquietos,
> and more recently also through the Spanish national geomatics
> association, AESIG. She works for GeoCat providing SDI solutions all
> over the world.
> So you can see, María is a leader locally, nationally, and
> internationally. You can often find her live-tweeting[2] at every FOSS4G
> event, and sharing her passion for all things OSGeo. I see in her a very
> strong voice, full of youthful energy and passion, and a true leader
> that is absolutely ready for the global spotlight.
> Please show your support for María, and help to bring her passion to the
> Board of the OSGeo foundation.
