Dear OSGeo community and charter members

This is a reminder that there's still some days for nominations to the
Board of Directors elections. We have already nine great candidates,
including all the present Board members running for re-election. Take
a look at [1] for an overview of the nominations and support
expressions. Maybe there's a candidate that is worth your support or
someone special that you think should run to join our Board?

proposal[2] to put a week between the nominations period and the

some way, all candidates to support their candidacy publicly.

For the next GRASS-GIS' PSC election, I support what came out of a related
thread, in a post by Micha Silver (see

request (which, I know, is rather a bit strict) candidates to feedback the 
community by answering to
the very question (slightly altered)

"What should the community expect from my membership?"

Kindest regards, Nikos

All the best
CRO 2016
