Jeff McKenna

Nomination by
Michael Smith

I would like to nominate Jeff McKenna to the board of OSGeo.

As to his qualifications, how much time to do you have? Jeff lives and breathes OSGeo and is one of the most active members of the OSGeo community. He is a friend, resource and gateway to all who have an interest in Open Source (data and software) and OSGeo in particular. Jeff is one of the original charter members (from 2006) and has been on the OSGeo board before (September 2009). Jeff has a passion for OSGeo that is unrivaled by anyone, a big heart, and is considered someone always ready to talk or listen when anyone, anywhere has a OSGeo question, comment or critique. Jeff is very international in his approach to OSGeo and works with and participates with many, many OSGeo chapters worldwide. He has also been an incredible force behind almost all of the international FOSS4G conferences. Jeff would be a humble, strong, active and loud voice for OSGeo.

And I'm proud to call him my friend.
