The annual OSGeo Board of Directors and Charter Membership elections
have come to a close with the first meeting of the new board, and the
selection of a new executive.  During the process 22 new charter
members were added bringing this group to 144 charter members from
around the world.  During the Board of Directors election, the
following new board members were elected for a two year term:

* Anne Ghisla (Italy)
* Jeff McKenna (Canada)
* Daniel Morissette (Canada)
* Cameron Shorter (Australia)
* Frank Warmerdam (Canada)

Jáchym Čepický (Czech Republic) has been welcomed onto the board for a
one year term to complete Jo Cook's term who stepped down just before
the elections.

The new board, including the returning Peter Batty (United States),
Michael Gerlek (United States), and Mark Lucas (United States), is
pleased to announce the following executive:

* President: Frank Warmerdam
* Treasurer: Daniel Morissette
* Secretary: Michael Gerlek

As the new President of OSGeo, Frank Warmerdam brings many years of
geospatial experience and has been involved in the OSGeo foundation
since its inception.  He is known for his work with the GDAL/OGR
translation library, which has become the backbone of the spatial
industry.  Daniel Morissette is continuing the role of Treasurer and
brings practical experience as a business owner to this key role as
well as over a decade of experience as a technical contributor and
community leader in the MapServer project and OSGeo.  Michael Gerlek
is returning to the role of Secretary and brings a passion for
supporting OSGeo both locally and globally.

About his new role as OSGeo President Frank Warmerdam says, "OSGeo has
a fantastic set of volunteers, projects and an energized board and I
believe we can continue to move forward on many fronts in the coming
year.  I can't thank Arnulf Christl, our past president, enough for
his tireless work.  While I can't fill his shoes as a globe trotting
speaker on behalf of OSGeo, I believe we can as a community continue
to be everywhere."
