OSGeo Oceania - Call For Members

Edoardo Neerhut
Dear OSGeo Oceania community,

This email is an invitation to nominate yourself to become a member of OSGeo Oceania. OSGeo exists with the stated objective To support and grow the open geospatial community in the Oceania region, including the oversight and stewardship of a FOSS4G & SotM Conference series.

You can nominate yourself to become a member by filling in this form. Note, if you recently filled out an expression of interest form, you still need to complete the above form as it serves as your official nomination to become an OSGeo member.
 

The process

A Membership Working Group (MWG) has been formed comprising two OSGeo Oceania directors and three individuals involved in the conference series. Going forward the MWG will comprise two OSGeo Oceania directors and at least two OSGeo Oceania members. Efforts will be made to ensure the MWG reflects the diversity in our region. Members of OSGeo Oceania will be invited to take part in the MWG in future member inductions.

The MWG currently consists of Edoardo Neerhut, Daniel Silk, David Garcia, Emma Hain, and Adam Steer.

The nomination period will close on the 26th of November, 2019 at 23:59:59 AEST. After this date the MWG will begin assessing nominations and notifying nominees of their confirmation as members via email. You will be required to accept your nomination as a member by clicking the link in the email.

You may also wish to subscribe to the OSGeo Oceania mailing list to stay up to date on the election process which will take place in December.

OSGeo members will be inducted on a quarterly basis so if you miss out on this round, the next round will take place sometime before the 31st of March, 2020.

The Entity

Following the successful FOSS4G SotM Oceania 2018, an entity was formed to promote and support the open source geospatial community in Oceania. This entity, OSGeo Oceania, is a company limited by guarantee, registered in Australia under the Corporations Act (2001). By becoming a member you will be listed on the membership register of this entity. This is a private list, but we will list those that consent on the OSGeo wiki as members.

Benefits of membership

  • Vote for the board and shape the direction of OSGeo Oceania.
  • Eligible to serve on the board and directly shape the direction of OSGeo Oceania.
  • Eligible for funding when organising an event or activity relevant to OSGeo’s mission.
  • Stay closely informed on decision making in the organisation and opportunities to volunteer.

Responsibilities

Members have the right and responsibility to vote in the annual board elections. Members failing to do so in two consecutive elections will be considered inactive and removed from the membership list.


Nominate

Remember, you must nominate yourself by filling in this form. We require address details as part of our obligation to The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) to maintain a membership register.

The OSGeo community in Oceania is entering a new chapter and we'd love you to join it and help shape the direction of this organisation. If you haven’t already, make sure you sign up to the OSGeo mailing list.

Many thanks,

Ed and the MWG team
