I agree that it's great that so many great people are motivated to
participate on the board!

In the past, we have had enough interest in the project that we created
working groups, and it looks like we may be getting enough interested
again. The interest in the working groups has certainly waned since OSM US
first started, but I think the groups can be recreated and can be very
helpful to the advancement of open source mapping within the United States.

I think that we should have an Editathon working group that plans the
Editathons and themes.
I would like to participate in a group devoted to mapping national parks
such as this project:

I think last time we had too many groups and no real organization between
them.  I'm hoping we can learn from that and have successful working groups
this time around.

Good luck to all the candidates!
