The 2018 OSGeo the Charter Members election will take place in September/October 2018, followed by the Board nominations and elections in October/November.

Charter Member Election

As every year we are electing new Charter Members into the Foundation.

Membership process

  • To be elected a charter member need a nomination by a current charter member and at least one other charter member seconding the nomination. Only veto can be raised by sending a private e-mail to the CRO that has to inform the board for an anonymous review. If the veto is accepted by the board, then the CRO shall make it public and the charter member is not elected.

For more details see the Membership Process.
