>> Dear OSGeo Oceania community,

>> You can nominate yourself to become a member by filling in this form. Note, if you recently filled out an expression of interest form, you still need to complete the above form as it serves as your official nomination to become an OSGeo member.
>> The process
>> A Membership Working Group (MWG) has been formed comprising two OSGeo Oceania directors and three individuals involved in the conference series. Going forward the MWG will comprise two OSGeo Oceania directors and at least two OSGeo Oceania members. Efforts will be made to ensure the MWG reflects the diversity in our region. Members of OSGeo Oceania will be invited to take part in the MWG in future member inductions.
>> The MWG currently consists of Edoardo Neerhut, Daniel Silk, David Garcia, Emma Hain, and Adam Steer.

>> The Entity

This entity, OSGeo Oceania, is a company limited by guarantee, registered in Australia under the Corporations Act (2001). By becoming a member you will be listed on the membership register of this entity. This is a private list, but we will list those that consent on the OSGeo wiki as members.

>> The OSGeo community in Oceania is entering a new chapter and we'd love you to join it and help shape the direction of this organisation. If you haven’t already, make sure you sign up to the OSGeo mailing list.
