-------- Forwarded Message --------

It gives us great pleasure to nominate Astrid Emde as a member of the 
OSGeo Board.

Astrid [1] needs no introduction for most in our community; for the few 
who may not yet be fully aware of Astrid’s contributions, she is an 
(hyper) active member of OSGeo for many years. She is a PSC member of 
the Mapbender [2] and OSGeo Live projects [3]. Apart from being a 
regular contributor at global and regional FOSS4G conferences, Astrid is 
the force behind the German language OSGeo Local Chapter FOSSGIS e.V. 
[4] ever since its inception. She is also involved in showcasing OSGeo 
at mega-events like INTERGEO [5] and scientific conferences like AGIT [6].

Astrid relentlessly promotes OSGeo by organizing community events, code 
sprints, workshops on a variety of OSGeo software, and 
documentation/translation. More recently, her excellent communication 
skills are being put to effective use in our Marketing Committee.

We would like to thank Astrid for kindly agreeing to spare her time for 
the added responsibility of serving the OSGeo Foundation as a member of 
the Board.


Venka & Jeff
