> Wiki editing is down so posting this to Discuss.
> About Me:
> For those of you that don't know me, I'm Michael Smith, a physical
> scientist at the US Army Corps of Engineers. I've been involved with the
> MapServer community since 2001 and OSGeo since its inception. For the last
> 4 years, I've been honored to be a OSGeo Board member and the OSGeo
> treasurer. It’s been quite a learning experience and I greatly thank Daniel
> Morissette, the previous OSGeo treasurer for so much support in handling
> the transition.
> My Vision:
> In my time on the board and as treasurer, my focus has been on encouraging
> governments (in general) and the US in particular, especially the
> Department of Defense which, personally I know makes extensive use of OSGeo
> projects, to more actively participate is OSGeo and the projects beyond
> just use and occasional commits.
> What your interests are in terms of the board:
> If reelected, I plan to continue as OSGeo Treasurer. Its been a bit of a
> learning experience handling the funds from OSGeo, learning how to do the
> non profit tax filings for the US Government (where OSGeo is incorporated)
> and handling distributions of funds to Code Sprints and Events. Its also
> been a lot of fun to work directly with groups and individuals all over the
> world with OSGeo. Its been a very rewarding experience.
> It’s really wonderful to see a great group of new candidates to the board.
> Its wonderful to see the diversity and multiple regions of the world
> represented in the candidates.
> Thank you for the nomination, OSGeo Community!
