> Dear all new HOT voting members, FYI all "old" voting members & the HOT
> community at large,
> I'm happy to announce that the nominations of and elections for new HOT
> voting members have resulted in 18 new voting members for HOT! Welcome all!
> The new voting members list is below.
> We'll be arranging (first ever) orientations to the new voting members in
> the next two weeks to make sure that everyone knows what (all things) HOT
> is, how the organization operates and what is the role of voting members.
> E.g. we'll be electing a Chair (person) for the organization and a new
> board in the coming weeks. But we'll contact you separately on all this.
> .. Should there be "old" voting members who'd like to pitch in to
> preparing / doing the orientations, please get in contact.
> So, again, welcome all! And thanks to Boris and Kate for making the
> nomination/election process happen.
> If you want you're most welcome to reply with a blurb about you and how
> you got/are involved with HOT, your HOT story, if you may. I wrote mine at
> the bottom for a sort of an example. In fact, thinking about it, I think
> it wouldn't be a bad thing is also some (other) old members also feel
> inclined to write their HOT story. Good to know who's who in this zoo and
> where are people coming from :) . Perhaps we could even post these stories
> someone online - under an About us section at our website? Just a thought..
> But now: The new voting members of HOT!

> My "HOT story":
> Originally from Finland, moved to the US (DC) over 10 years ago. I got
> involved with HOT during the Haiti earth quake of 2010 and when I lived in
> Haiti for 3 years. I've done most of my mapping<http://hdyc.neis-one.org/?jaakkoh>in Haiti and Dominican Republic and I've worked in the field with HOT (in
> Haiti) and pitched into developing some new projects for HOT.
> Currently living in Nicaragua trying to learn Spanish and getting engaged
> with the local mapping community (http://mapanica.net).
> HOT is hot because I think that (it's obvious by now that)
> Open(Street)Mapping can have a huge positive impact in humanitarian work
> and making (economic) development work better.
