I'd like to nominate Vicky Vergara [1] to the OSGeo Board of Directors.  I
think she'll be a great asset to our outreach efforts.

Vicky has been heavily involved in OSGeo activities in both development and

On the Development side, she's the main maintainer of the pgRouting
community project in all areas documentation, coding, testing, and
On related work she also helps with maintenance and development of the QGIS
pgRouting Layer and maintaining and enhancing the osm2pgrouting loader tool.

On the outreach side, she's been a mentor for a number of years for GSoc.
She also got recently involved with OSGeo-Live helping in streamlining the
documentation and general workflow.

She speaks often at FOSS4G conferences most recently Korea, India and she's
off to Argentina.  She is fluent in a number of languages (Spanish, English,
and some Japanese and other languages I don't know).

She has a balanced perspective on things being first an Economist and second
a Computer Scientist.

She is very energetic and when you are around her you can't help but to be
