It is my honor to nominate Jeff McKenna for the OSGeo Board of Directors election.

Most of you knows Jeff's energy and passion for everything OSGeo, and i would probably be mistaken trying to summarize his countless contributions over the years, at every level of our Foundation. His leadership and long involvement in the OSGeo and FOSS4G communities made him the Winner of the Solz Katz Award in 2016, and i cannot add more. For those of you who may really not know Jeff yet, the User:Jeff_McKenna wiki page is a good read before you vote.

Jeff already served three times at the board and has a deep understanding of both the director role and the current OSGeo strategic plan. Experienced with OSGeo governance and bylaws, Jeff also knows a lot about projects and people. He is always ready to help build locally and to represent globally.

Jeff is a great communicator and enthusiastic community leader, and i believe he will be an excellent OSGeo director again. Please let us all welcome Jeff back at the Board!

Best regards,

Nicolas Bozon

Jeff McKenna agreed to be nominated and i decided to send the nomination directly to the Discuss list with cc to CRO, so it avoids Jeff to confirm to himself that he accepts the nomination. The Board Nominations page still need to be updated, could you please Vasile ? Sorry for shortening the nomination process in this special case.
