Dear all,

Just a quick recap of the 2018 Elections:

- Vicky Vergara and Jorge Gustavo Rocha volunteer to help the CRO. Thanks!

- We got 36 valid nominations. We are still expecting some confirmations 
from the nominees. For this reasons we are extending the first stage of 
the charter members elections with 48 hours. However, no new nominations 
will be accepted. Only confirmations of nomination acceptance from the 

- The electronic voting system is ready for charter members to second 
the nominations, preventing the last year stress of seconding via the 
discuss mailing list. Nominal vote invitations will be sent to all our 
charter members on 10 of October. Thanks to SAC for setting up the 
electronic voting system and to Vicky for her magic scripts.

Thank you all for caring about OSGeo,
Vasile + Vicky & Jorge
