Introduction

OSGeo Advocates are authoritative OSGeo personalities who have volunteered to talk on behalf of the OSGeo foundation. Advocates should be able to speak well, even better if they are entertaining.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of conferences around the world which have an interest in seeing presentations from authoritative speakers, with deep insights into topics related to Open Source Geospatial Software. Luckily, OSGeo is fortunate to draw extensive membership from around the world, and has access to such authoritative figures within most countries.

Past OSGeo Advocates

This section lists prior listed Advocates who have not recently updated their profiles.

Understanding OSGeo roles

Below is an explanation of roles which Advocates might have been involved in as part of OSGeo:

OSGeo board.png OSGeo exboard.png OSGeo Board Members

We only have 8 active board members in the world, which have been peer selected based upon their outstanding leadership in the greater OSGeo community.

OSGeo charter.png OSGeo Charter Members

Charter membership is obtained through a strongly contested selection process. Members tend to be developers and leaders in one or more OSGeo projects, and/or OSGeo business leaders, and have a deep understanding in many of the OSGeo projects and principles of Open Source.

OSGeo chair.png OSGeo psc.png Voted position in an OSGeo community

These people hold a position of responsibility within one of the OSGeo sub-communities. This may be a chair of an OSGeo committee or Regional Chapter, or as a member of a project's Project Steering Committee (PSC).

OSGeo coder.png OSGeo committee.png Developers and Committee Members

This is where the real work gets done developing and coordinating development of OSGeo Software.

OSGeo user.png OSGeo Community Members

These people are actively involved in one or more OSGeo communities, acting as practitioners, users, promoters or supporters of OSGeo software. These people tend to have a practical understanding about how OSGeo software works.

Process for becoming an OSGeo Advocate

Anyone fitting one of the OSGeo Advocate categories, may put themselves forward as an OSGeo Advocate. To do so, you will need to:

 {{User:<YourOSGeoWikiUserName>}}

Annual Refresh of Advocate list

  • The list of OSGeo Advocates will be refreshed annually, after the annual voting of OSGeo Charter Members. This will be achieved by removing lapsed Advocates, then moving all Current Advocates into the Past Advocate section. All Advocates will be invited to update their profile, and move their profile back into the current Advocates section.
