*A Message from the Board of Directors Board Election Results*

  “While Tyler, Katja and Heather along
  with three HOT voting members Geoffrey,
  Iyan and Fred are in Istanbul at the World   Humanitarian Summit,
the  “Executive
  Director’s Desk” message falls to me.

*Blake Girardot-HOT Board President*

Filling my desk is HOT's response to the Sri Lanka flooding for the past
few days, and our thoughts are first with those enduring that crisis,
Ecuador’s earthquake aftermath and the countless other crises around the
world right now. But also filling my inbox are numerous emails dedicated to
how humanitarian mapping, open data and open tools are making a difference
around the world every single day and how we can all do more to support
that.

HOT elected a new Board of Directors and I am humbled to say I was elected
to the Board and as President of the organization. My colleagues on the
Board are Heather Leson, Katja Ulbert-Treasurer, Jorieke Vyncke-Secretary
and Dale Kunce-Vice-President.

On behalf of the new Board and those members of the world wide humanitarian
community that I speak with on a daily basis, I want to pass on our thanks
to the OSM Community. I hear it everyday and I wish you could too. The
successes I see everyday are only possible thanks to you and our fellow OSM
Community members.”

*Disaster Mapping - Ecuador Earthquake*
The strongest earthquake to hit Ecuador in decades flattened buildings and
buckled highways along its Pacific coast, sending the Andean nation into a
state of emergency. HOT is supporting the response by assisting the local
OSM community to engage the global volunteer community and interface with
international aid organizations and imagery providers. *Updates
