Charter Member Election

In 2011 we are adding up to 20 new Charter Members to the Foundation (20% as decided at Booard Meeting, see minutes).

  • Please email cro@osgeo.org with their name, contact email and paragraph describing why you are recommending this person as a Charter Member

Vote for new Charter Members: 2011-11-19 to 2011-11-27

  • Only Charter Members are eligible to vote!
  • Please email cro@osgeo.org with a list of names 20 lines long (one vote per new member slot)
  • You can vote for 20 different people, or the same person 20 times, or any balance in between.

Final Status: 2011-11-29

  • Note that we had a tie for the 20th slot, so it was decided by the CRO to welcome 21 new charter members for this year instead of 20 since that still fits within the limits of 20% new charter members set by the board at the 2011-09-17 board meeting (i.e. 20% of 104 = 20.8)
