Hi Sergio, I just returned from the FOSS4G-GOV event in Brasilia and I 
nominated several leaders from that region.  I am aware of leaders being 
nominated from Argentina and Nicaragua as well.  I agree with you that 
it is very important to have more formal representation in OSGeo from 
Iberoamérica, and we need more representation (the leaders are there, as 
you know, we just need to give them the spotlight).  -jeff

I was planning to introduce strongly GeoForAll Iberoamérica in these elections so as to have more charter members from this region. My apologies for not being able to do it. I will try it the next time.
