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.
