It is a great honor for us to nominate Prof. Helena Mitasova for the 
2017 OSGeo Board Elections.

Prof. Helena Mitasova hardly needs any introduction. Her activities that 
encompass the entire gamut of the OSGeo Foundation goals, speak for 
themselves. She was awarded the Sol Katz Award in 2010 for her long 
standing contribution to the OSGeo Foundation and FOSS4G communities.

Recently, she has been one of the driving force behind the Geo4All 
initiative. She is also instrumental in the conclusion of several MoUs 
with international professional organizations. Her deep insight in area 
of Education and Research will help to strengthen our outreach. Further, 
her invaluable experience on the present OSGeo board will also be an asset.

We thank her for agreeing to be nominated for the 2017 OSGeo Board
