A todos aquellos que no seguís la versión inglesa: ya tenemos aquí las elecciones para añadir nuevos miembros a OsGeo.

Me gustaría animar especialmente a los miembros del otro lado del charco (por América) a que os postuléis como posibles candidatos. Creo que es importante mantener la variedad y esta es una forma más de variedad :)

Para los que no sepáis qué es un miembro de OsGeo, y a modo resumen os comento: Un miembro de OsGeo, entre otras cosas, puede postularse para y votar a los miembros del Board. El Board es la directiva, los que toman decisiones y representan a OsGeo a nivel internacional.

Que esto pilla a la mayoría como etéreo y lejano, pues sí. Pero no deja de ser importante para la organización.

As in every year, the Open Source Geospatial Foundation will have an
election process to allow anyone in the community to become active in
the growth of the foundation, by becoming a Charter Member; new people
bring new energy, points of view, and diversity. Do you know somebody
who is involved with Open Source geospatial software, education or
geospatial open data and could contribute to OSGeo's mission and
goals? Anybody can nominate anybody, there is no requirement for a
prior formal involvement with OSGeo. Please consider making a
nomination for Charter Membership. Find out more about positive
attributes expected from new Charter Members.

OSGeo Charter Members maintain the integrity of the Foundation. They
"own" the Foundation, they elect new Charter Members and the Board of
Directors. OSGeo uses the term "Charter" Member to explicitly indicate
that these members are responsible for upholding the "Charter" of the
Foundation. We emphasize that the only real difference between any
regular member and a Charter Member is the responsibility to vote at
the Foundation level. It is not our intent to make the Charter Members
some "privileged" class. All mailing lists, projects, committees, and
other Foundation activities are uniformly open and available to all
friends of the Foundation.

Charter Members are eligible to serve on the Board of Directors which
is responsible for regular day to day operations of the Foundation.
Part of the Board of Directors is renewed each year. Nominations and
election of new board members take place in August. Read more about
the Foundation Membership.

The 2014 Charter Member nomination period runs for two weeks starting
from 2014-07-19 and ending on 2014-08-01. Find all details here[1].
