Hello HOTties, 

We are extending the new member election period through the end of 2012, since we did not receive the minimum number of ballots cast during the original time frame to elect any new members this year. We will continue to accept votes for new members until the very last moment of 31 Dec 2012, Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8).

If you are a _voting member_ of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, and you have not voted yet, your ACTION IS REQUIRED. Please visit the nomination page to see who is eligible to be inducted into voting membership in HOT:


Then, please go and vote for the individuals whom you feel are qualified to help provide the Team with guidance through eligibility to vote on elections and other key issues.


If you are a voting member, PLEASE not put this off any further. It will only take you a few minutes.

According to our bylaws, we need to receive affirmative votes from AT LEAST 2/3rds of our voting membership in order to induct anyone at all this year. Right now we have ballots cast by less than half of our membership.

The outcome of the vote will be announced no sooner than 2 Jan 2013. The open period for nominations to the Board of Directors will be extended at least until 6 Jan 2013.

It has come to my attention that, since the prior announcements were made on the voting members list, some people who are eligible to vote might not have received them. If you ARE a voting member, and have not received these announcements, please contact kristen.egermeier at hotosm.org with your updated email address.

HOT is depending on you. Please don't let us down.

Have a happy holiday season!

Stay HOT,


(on behalf of your Board of Directors)
