Call for board members

We invite you to think about the possibility of being candidate for one of the following positions:

     * President 
* Treasurer
* Secretary

Each position requires some time in order to :

  • prepare each GA
  • represent OSGeo-be in some activities
  • carry out its projects

Regular monitoring is more needed than a significant amount of time.
The board must officially manage the association which relies on the community.
