It is my pleasure to nominate Tom Kralidis for the OSGeo board. The 
first time I met Tom was at the MapServer User Meeting in Ottawa in 
2004. This goes to show that Tom has a long-standing involvement in Open 
Source Geospatial.

He has been an OSGeo charter member since 2007. He has contributed to 
numerous OSGeo software packages, such as MapServer, GeoNode, QGIS, 
PyWPS and OWSLib, and he is the creator of pycsw. He is also on several 
Project Steering Committees (PSCs).

Tom is also a longtime member of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), 
where he was the lead contributor to the Web Map Context specification, 
and is currently involved in development of the emerging Catalogue 
Services 4 standard.  Tom is a strong proponent of open standards as is 
evident in his numerous efforts as a developer and power user over the 
years with OSGeo tools.

Tom currently works at the Metereological Service of Canada.

Given his diverse background and dedication to open source and open 
standards, I think he would make a great OSGeo board member.

Best regards,
