Its AGM, election and anniversary party time again :-)

I'm going to be standing for election to the OSM Foundation Board  
again this year.  I'd like to hear from all of the members about what  
you want to see happen in 2009 - 2010?  You paid your £15, fought you  
way through the OSM-F sign-up process... now what?  What changes do  
you want to see happen?  Some of the areas I want to focus on in 2009  
- 2010 are:

Growing the OSM-F to support OpenStreetMap as a global organization
Setting up Local Chapters around the world
Making sure that the OSM Foundation delivers to its current members &  
increases the total number of members around the world
Securing external, independent funding for the Foundation
Hiring full time staff into the Foundation
Leading the Foundation to be an organization that can promote OSM  
around the world
Improving the experience of OSMers around the world
Creating better tools, websites and user experiences for mappers
Set up a UX working group that will work with OSM users and developers  
and offer guidance around user experience
Continuing to improve the communication from the Foundation to its  
members and to OSMers worldwide

How does this list look?  Am I way off the mark?  Please get in touch  
and let me know.  You can email me at nick at osmfoundation.org or even  
better, ping me on skype: nickb_sk.   If you'd like to talk more we  
can set up a time to talk one on one (my mobile number is 07835  
054292).  Of course if you are in London we can talk in person at any  
of the OSM meetups that are coming up.

Look forward to hearing from you all.
