A survey of all Charter Members was performed before the 2015 election, asking about a preference for the method to select new Charter Members ([http://geo-spatial.org/osgeo_survey/final_osgeo_survey_results.html link to results]).  Although not enough Charter Members responded to indicate a strong preference, the survey was very useful to receive thoughts from members.  The OSGeo Board later would decide to keep the same process as in the [http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php?title=Election_2014 2014 Elections].
+
 
+
==== 2014 Process Changes ====
+
 
+
Previous to 2014, the Charter Member selection process had been a little contentious. We typically received numerous nominations from high caliber members of our community, and insufficient positions to accept them all. This typically resulted in unnecessary disappointment and dissent.
+
 
+
In response, in 2014, the OSGeo board [http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/board/2014-July/011785.html agreed] to update the voting process. The aim was to accept all recognised OSGeo members who exhibit [http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Membership_Process#Positive_Attributes Positive OSGeo Attributes].
+
 
+
A key change was that there is no arbitrary limit for the number of new OSGeo charter members.
