OSGeo charter member page instruction

From OSGeo
Jump to: navigation, search

This is an informal wiki page which should be enriched by board and charter members. Its main goal is to provide some guidelines to newly elected charter members about their duties. Some do's and don'ts could first be added, and such a list could then tend to become official guidelines, through a more formal process.

Participate in Elections

Charter members' main role is to participate in OSGeo elections. They must:

  • Vote for the annual new charter members elections every year
  • Vote for the board members elections every year
