2016 Planning

Operational Budget for 2016

Thanks to our sponsors, and a series of successful events, OSGeo does has an operational budget for 2016.

The Board has divided the above budget up according to our priority as an organization. Please keep in mind that prior boards have taken this approach - and spent nothing due to lack of volunteers willing to lead the charge. The following is budget and does not provide a commitment to spend money on the actives listed - to do that we need your commitment as a volunteer!

Strategic Plan 2016

From Anne: See the parallel Skate-Boarding of Fedora at http://fedoramagazine.org/lets-talk-about-fedora-project-objectives/ - I really like the idea of having 18 months goals, that are measurable, backed up by community agreement. Let's discuss this at the first Sprint. There are also some thoughts on Ubuntu governance that can inspire us, but I haven't gone through the whole discussion yet, and there are many differences between OSGeo and Ubuntu; so I'm not sure on how much we can learn from it.

This section outlines OSGeo strategic plan for 2016 - this is a result of the vision, mission and goals established at the 2016 face to face meeting.

Strategic objectives for 2016:

  • S01: showcasing excellence in our communities
  • S02: proactively engage with external partners
  • S03: Fostering our mission, vision and goals
  • S04: Empowering our communities and extending our reach

These objectives were taken to the community for concrete / measurable actions volunteers were interested in tackling over the course of 2016.

Update: We did not receive enough feedback to form a strategic plan.

The http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/board mailing list is used for most public board discussions. There is also a private board mailing list used only for matters that are considered needful to be kept private.
