Subject : Request to recognize OSGeo Sri Lanka as an official local chapter

Dear OSGeo Board,

 

We are happy to inform you that the Sri Lankan OSGeo community is working together to “officially” establishing the OSGeo Sri Lanka chapter.

 

Though small in numbers , the Sri Lankan open source GIS community  has been active for years and organized the first FOSS4G Sri Lanka event in 2014 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgJbFdc38Ng&sns=em)

 

FOSS4G Asia 2018 would be held in Sri Lanka this year and aligning with it, we think  this is a good time to try to formalise our community.

 

We had our first official meeting on 19th October 2017 and an interim committee is appointed there. The details can be found  at https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Sri_Lanka.

 

We kindly request the OSGeo Board to kindly take up the approval of OSGeo-Sri Lanka (lk) as an official chapter representing the Sri Lankan community as an agenda item in the next board meeting. 

It would be great if we receive the approval by early August so that the appropriate announcements can be made to spread the message during OSGeo-Asia 2018.

If there is any information required, please don’t hesitate to contact me ( [hidden email]) or Nimalika via [hidden email].

Thanking you

Secretary, OSGeo Sri Lanka Chapter
