 2018 Board Position Statement

Hi! Im running for the 2018 OpenStreetMap US board.

My name is Jonah Adkins. I am a cartographer from Newport News, Virginia. I have been working with maps & GIS technology since 1999, with local governments, federal agencies, and most recently as a consultant.

I'm a regular editor of OpenStreetMap since November of 2013. To date, Ive been mostly a silent contributor, but I'm looking to change that with your vote!

I have some previous organizational experience from being involved with and a 2 year stint as Vice-President with Virginia Association of Mapping & Land Surveying, a local organizer of Maptime! Hampton Roads, and volunteering with Code for Hampton Roads.

I'm most eager to bring a fresh perspective to the board and look forward to fostering a community of inclusion, diversity, and belonging for anyone involved with OpenStreetMap US.
