- CameronShorter (chair)
Discussion: IRC logs
- General agreement around the concept, and management, and that the Marketing Committee would be responsible for updating the list every year.
- Concern was raised around using the term "Ambassador" as the term implies someone who is a selected representative, rather than a self appointed volunteer.
- Debated terms:
- "OSGeo Ambassador" - Implies someone who is a selected by the board, rather the reality of a self appointed volunteer; concern this might have legal ramifications for OSGeo.
- "OSGeo Speakers Bureau" - limiting the role to speaking and not very prestigious
- "Authoritative OSGeo Personalities" - a bit long and informal
- "OSGeo Advocate" - this was the final term decided upon
