Nominations page has been updated: 

(note that this was originally submitted 2017-09-27 but I waited, to try 
to avoid being both the CRO sending to Discuss list, and the one who 
submitted the nomination. So I'm happy to finally share my nomination ha!)

Name: María Arias de Reyna
Country of Residence: Spain

It is my pleasure and honour to nominate María Arias de Reyna[1] for the 
Board of Directors of OSGeo. You may remember that I nominated María 
last year for the Board, but since then she has gone on to give several 
great keynote talks at various events around the world, bringing 
much-needed discussions of diversity and sharing to the forefront of events.

María is well known in the OSGeo community for her relentless efforts as 
a core contributor for the GeoNetwork project, and for her longtime 
contributions to the SIG Libre conference (the Spanish FOSS4G). Locally 
she is very active through the OSGeo microchapter network Geoinquietos, 
and more recently also through the Spanish national geomatics 
association, AESIG. She works for GeoCat providing SDI solutions all 
over the world.

So you can see, María is a leader locally, nationally, and 
internationally. You can often find her live-tweeting[2] at every FOSS4G 
event, and sharing her passion for all things OSGeo. I see in her a very 
strong voice, full of youthful energy and passion, and a true leader 
that is absolutely ready for the global spotlight.

Please show your support for María, and help to bring her passion to the 
Board of the OSGeo foundation.
