OSGeo Budget 2017
Operational Budget for 2017
Thanks to our sponsors, and a series of successful events, OSGeo has an operational budget for 2017.
The Board took a different approach to the 2017 budget, dividing up by committee. The Board has reached out to each committee for guidance on their 2017 requirements.
- Annual Budget for 2017: OSGeo operational budget for 2017
