Well said, Mark. Let me also second Daniel's nomination!

Not that it's necessary, but I would also like to support Daniel's nomination. I've had the pleasure of working with Daniel as well and agree wholeheartedly with Mark & Arnulf.

Thank you very much Arnulf for such a nice nomination. It would be
hard for me to not accept after reading it.  :)

I'd be happy to serve on the board for another term, presumably to
continue the job started as treasurer in the last year (or to help
transition it to someone else if there is a taker), and also and
most importantly to continue to help bridge the gap between the
local chapters communities and "OSGeo Global". The growing number
of local chapters and local events shows how important they are to
help spread the OSGeo vision to local and non-English speaking

I am very happy to see a few nominees from outside North America
already... please keep them coming as I think this is a great sign
and can only help make OSGeo even more international. Some
continents/regions are not represented yet in the list of nominees.
It would be awesome of we had at least one candidate from each

I have been working with Daniel for many years and he is one of
the most trustworthy and consistently productive people I know. He
has always proven to be highly sensitive to community related
aspects and has an international outlook, combined with very good
English skills. This makes him a good mediator between different
regions and cultures, a regularly upcoming issue in our community.
This would already make him an invaluable member of the board of
directors. But this is not enough, on top of this he also tends to
the irksome job of treasurer and has toiled through many
down-to-earth tasks that an organization of our size requires to
get done. He is also an integral part of the Franco-Canadian local
community and a relentless contributor to the MapServer project.

It would be silly to not squeeze some more out of him if he so
friendly asks for it.

Thank you,
