# Nominee Name Country Statement Nominated by
1 Msilikale Msilanga Tanzania Msilikale is a very active member of OSGeo. You may know him as the chair of FOSS4G 2018 or by his efforts on raising the African community. But let me assure you that his most important work is not that visible. María Arias de Reyna
2 Marie Anna Baovola Madagascar Marie is a power user of FLOSS. You may have seen her in 2018 FOSS4G as a speaker. She has successfully promoted OSGeo software actively both at work (at the Geographic and Hydrographic Institute of Madagascar,) and giving lectures at the University. She is leading the creation of the Madagascar Chapter (still to be confirmed as official). María Arias de Reyna
3 Astrid Emde Germany It is my great pleasure to nominate Astrid Emde for re-election at the OSGeo Board of Directors. Astrid was the winner of the 2018 Sol Katz Award for her leadership and longtime efforts in the OSGeo and FOSSGIS communities. Astrid is a very active member of OSGeo for many years, she is currently the OSGeo Secretary and she is a PSC member of the Mapbender and OSGeoLive projects. Astrid relentlessly promotes OSGeo by organizing community events, code sprints, workshops on a variety of OSGeo software, and documentation/translation. Astrid is also a leading member of our Marketing Committee. Angelos Tzotsos
