The OSGeo Board Election for 2011 has begun. The first stage is the nomination of candidates for the board. Board membership is for a two year term, and half the Board is refreshed each year. This year there are five seats up for election.
Anyone can submit a Board nomination, however only Charter Members are eligible to serve on the Board. The complete list of charter members is available at
A new charter member intake process will be run later this year.
Please submit your nominations consisting of name and a paragraph describing why you think this person would make a good Board member, to firstname.lastname@example.org, and CC the OSGeo Discuss list so the community can be nudged along and have a sense of what is going on. Please ensure that your nominee is actually willing to serve, prior to nominating them.
The nomination period will close at 23:59 (your time zone) on Sunday August 7th 2011, and will be followed by a one-week voting period.
OSGeo Chief Returning Officer (2011)
