FOSS4G-NA 2018 Travel Grant Programme - Call for volunteers from GeoForAll community

Suchith Anand

Dear colleagues,


The Travel Grant Program is a great initiative run by amazing volunteer OSGeo colleagues . It has provided opportunities for many who otherwise won't be able to afford to  participate . It has provided many students with opportunities to be part of FOSS4G.


The OSGeo conference committee are currently looking for volunteers to manage FOSS4G-NA as many key colleagues are stretched out helping in FOSS4G Dar as well . So please help  by volunteering your services for FOSS4G-NA 2018 


Don't worry if you are new to this, Till Adams [hidden email] will be happy to answer any queries you have and help guide you to key resources.


Best wishes,


Suchith

Dear OSGeo-community,

as you all know, the FOSS4G 2018 Travel Grant Programme is currently underway, run by the LOC Dar and some volunteers out of the Conference Committee.
A similar program is to be launched for FOSS4G NA, but running such a TGP requires the support of people from the community. Unfortunately, no one has yet found who wants to support the TGP FOSS4G-NA and I hope to find people this way.

I for myself can offer my help and refer to the corresponding pages where our procedure is described - I am also available for questions. However, since I am in charge of the TGP for Dar, I can't support this TGP too. Please go inside, think and consider whether you could make it possible to support the community. I can tell you, there is nothing better than meeting people at a conference whose visit was made possible by your commitment!

See below some details about the TGP Dar.


Kind regards, Till

- on behalf of OSGeo's conference committee -
