+1 for Jody

I have worked with him (And others) on the rebrand And new website for OSGeo. As member of the Marketing Committee he has taken point on one of our greatest achievements this year.

His energy, patience, persistence and management of the project have been exemplary for working in and with our community.

Continuation of his Board work will benefit projects, committees, other initiatives and membership: our community.
