Humanitarian OSM Team/Board Responsibilities

Jump to: navigation, search

Board Members of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team have legal requirements from our registration and articles of association; as well as the practical duties we've taken on ourselves with the organization. It's a honor to serve, and definitely takes commitment and responsibility.

The expected time commitment for a Board Member is 5 hours a month. We have a monthly meeting by Skype or IRC. We also communicate by email frequently throughout the month which require prompt response. As opportunity arises, we have had in person meetings in the past, often connected to OSM conferences.
