What's hot: GRASS book 2008.jpg http://www.grassbook.org/ <<-- new Edition 2008!

My goals 2010-2011 (as a director)

  • Board
    • [✓] Extend the OSGeo mission statement: add "collaborative"
    • consider a MoU with OpenStreetMap Foundation to clarify relationship for people outside of communities
    • consider two F2F board of directors meetings per year
    • discuss charter member fee (as most organizations worldwide have incl. OSGeo local chapters)
  • Conference
    • run two conferences per year in different parts of the world rather than targeting at 2000 participants. One could be the current conference, the other more workshop oriented (Geoff Zeiss: make that topic oriented)
  • Marketing
    • Edu Marketing reachout initiative - better advertise the multi-language Edu portal
  • Data
  • Business
    • Service providers directory: better support individual freelancers
    • consider to establish a FOSS4G "engineer" certificate (which can even generate revenue for OSGeo)
  • Community
    • better link OSGeo int'l and local chapters (basically poor performance of many OSGeo liason officers. Maybe tag important messages and send to new local-chapters list?)
    • promote a spatially more representative charter membership structure
