Thanks for feedback Astrid, Gert-Ja (and Jeff!).

Gert-Ja I am having trouble turning your feedback into a useful mandate to
ask the board for. In a sense I want to answer your question of if we are a
MarkCom or MarkComCom ...   not sure if I am being slow on the uptake, or
if are answering a different question?

Let me try again in the form of a letter we can send to the board.

*OSGeo Board:*

*The marketing committee is in the process of reforming and would like to
ask for a mandate (similar to what has been provided in the motion to form
the conference committee
incubation committee <http://www.osgeo.org/incubator/IncubatorMotion.html>,

*The revamped committee seeks responsibility for:*
** growing our community with new users*
** establish a marketing strategy*
** providing support for events*

*Specifically for 2017 we are willing to take responsibility for:*
** Managing a RFQ process to reboot the OSGeo website*

*We should be clear that this is a marketing committee focused on user
outreach. We are not taking responsibility for all OSGeo communication. The
OSGeo board is expected to continue to issue press releases. OSGeo projects
are expected to continue to offer release announcements for developers.
Events are expected to handle their own publicity. *
