It is our pleasure to nominate Venka Raghavan
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Venkatesh_Raghavan), from Japan, for the
OSGeo Board.  It is hard to put into (few) words, Venka's influence on
FOSS and geo.  The 2012 winner of the Sol Katz Award, he created the
term “FOSS4G” back in 2004, using it as the name of an international
event in Thailand, and since then he has promoted FOSS4G all over the
globe.  He was also one of the organizers of the recent FOSS4G-Asia
event this past December.

Venka has also been directly involved in OSGeo since its inception, in
fact he was on the first OSGeo Board of Directors from 2006 to 2007.  He
is also a long-time board member of the OSGeo Japan chapter.

A professor at Osaka City University in Japan, Venka constantly
encourages his students to leverage FOSS4G in all of their research.
His influence in Asia wide reaching, being easily the most influential
FOSS4G leader there.  Venka also helps organize the GIS-IDEAS Symposium
every 2 years in Vietnam, which is always FOSS4G-based.

Venka is enthused to be a part of the OSGeo Board again, helping a
foundation that he helped form at the beginning.  We could not be more
please and honoured to nominate Venka for the Board of Directors.


Sanghee Shin, Markus Neteler, & Jeff McKenna

I would like to second this excellent nomination. Venka's years of experience and contributions to OSGeo and Geo4All will be great asset to the OSGeo Board and our global community. As the chair of Geo4All Asia , he has been working tirelessly to expand geoeducation opportunities to students across Asia.

Thanks to Venka for accepting this nomination to stand for OSGeo Board election.

In reply to this post by Vasile Crăciunescu
Professor Venkatesh Raghavan, popularly known as Venka is one of the most visible members of OSGeo around the world, and more particularly Asia. He has mentored innumerable conferences and many local chapters. 

All the best to Venka.

Re: [Election 2015] Board Nomination for Venkatesh Raghavan

nicolas bozon
I also strongly support this excellent nomination.
As the instigator and advocate of the FOSS4G culture, Venka-sensei is an open source geospatial visionary as well as a wonderful community builder. I believe he would be an excellent director once again, and a great asset for the future of our Foundation.

Best regards,

Nick

It is our pleasure to nominate Venka Raghavan
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Venkatesh_Raghavan), from Japan, for the
OSGeo Board.  It is hard to put into (few) words, Venka's influence on
FOSS and geo.  The 2012 winner of the Sol Katz Award, he created the
term “FOSS4G” back in 2004, using it as the name of an international
event in Thailand, and since then he has promoted FOSS4G all over the
globe.  He was also one of the organizers of the recent FOSS4G-Asia
event this past December.

Venka has also been directly involved in OSGeo since its inception, in
fact he was on the first OSGeo Board of Directors from 2006 to 2007.  He
is also a long-time board member of the OSGeo Japan chapter.

A professor at Osaka City University in Japan, Venka constantly
encourages his students to leverage FOSS4G in all of their research.
His influence in Asia wide reaching, being easily the most influential
FOSS4G leader there.  Venka also helps organize the GIS-IDEAS Symposium
every 2 years in Vietnam, which is always FOSS4G-based.

Venka is enthused to be a part of the OSGeo Board again, helping a
foundation that he helped form at the beginning.  We could not be more
please and honoured to nominate Venka for the Board of Directors.
