I would like to nominate Mohammed Zia for charter membership.

Zia is a GeoSpatial Developer at the National Innovation & Research 
Center for Geographical Information Technologies in Turkey. As part of 
his PhD research in Geomatics Engineering, he is making extensive use of 
FOSS4G technologies in the study of vehicle routing, including the use 
of OpenStreetMap data and Mapbox for visualization, and published his 
algorithms as open-source [1]. He presented his results at the 
International FOSS4G 2017 conference this August. Zia also served as the 
co-chair of the FOSS4G Academic Program Subcommittee and co-editor of 
the Conference Proceedings, and was essential to organizing the review 
of and the selection of the submitted academic papers. He also 
participated in moderating the presentations there and was an important 
part of making the conference a success.
