+1 on the nomination of Mohammed Zia.

I second everything Andy Anderson said. Among other things, Zia was an
incredible help as co-editor of the FOSS4G 2017 academic proceedings that
we are about to publish and will be put on the OSGeo Journal site. He's a
proven asset and collaborator to the OSGeo community.
