> www.linkedin.com/in/malena-libman
> I’m a enthusiastic and committed “porteña”, from Buenos Aires, Argentina,
> of the Geographic Information Systems and of the promotion of the use and
> development of FOSS4G through the development of communities.
> In addition to my participation in OSGEO, within the communities related
> to GIS I have been Secretary of the board of the Argentine Cartography
> Center (an ONG with more than 60 years of existence), collaborated in the
> organization of the SOTM LATAM 2018 here in Buenos Aires and I participate
> in communities also linked to the issues like programming and mapping but
> with a with with a gender perspective like GeochicasOSM and Las de Sistemas
> (the systems ones (she)).
> My university education is in GIS and I am currently a teacher of the
> Degree in GIS of the Tres de Febrero University.
> I have worked as a consultant, workshop trainer and GIS specialist for
> companies and as a government employee in different GIS proyects such as:
> Transport, Security, Health, Cadaster, Geology, Geography and Spatial Data
> Infraestructures.
> *My vision*
> FOSS4G is central throughout the world, but it is especially important in
> developing countries, where it is a key tool both for the construction of
> local capacities and for its contribution to achieving greater cooperation
> at the regional community level in contexts of strong limitations of
> resources.
> *What you have done within the community in the past*
> I’m a part of Geoinquiet at s Argentina (Spanish speaking micro chapter)
> since 2012. I’ve participated in the organization of the regional FOSS4G
> Argentina in 2013 and 2016. I also chaired the 2017 edition that we did
> together with OSM Argentina, FOSS4G + SOTM Argentina de 2017. I was very
> lucky to be able to attend the last FOSS4G 2018 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania,
> thanks to the travel grant program. Since then, I have been starting to
> participate in the OSGEO Marketing committee
> *What your interests are in terms of the board*
> I want to contribute so that OSGEO can promote the use of FOSS4G all over
> the world and for all people in a more effective way. For that, I consider
> it strategic to complement the most diverse views possible. In this sense,
> I believe that both Latin America has much to contribute to the
> strengthening of OSGEO and OSGEO has great potential to deepen and expand
> its actions in the region.
> *Any things that you would like to change or introduce*
> Reinforce the efforts for a more numerous, more protagonistic and more
> diverse participation by women from all over the world and from people in
> developing countries.
> Promote a greater direct relationship between local chapters of the same
> region and exchanges between different regions, for example, trough
> participation in regional conferences of representatives from regions other
> than those that organize it.
> *What role you would wish to fulfil on the board (if any)*
> To me, just the fact of being a part of the board would be a dream come
> true, although I am sure that I have many useful things to contribute, I
> believe that I still have much to learn from the commitment and experience
> of the men and women who make up the board.
> For that I would like to thenk María Arias de Reyna for nominating me and
> the support of Vicky Vergara for the nomination.
