Hi all,

To those of you who were already members of the LC mailing list: we had a Local Chapters meeting at State of the Map in Aizu-Wakamatsu, where some 35 mappers from 19 countries came together to share experiences and talk about how we can work together more closely in the future. We made a list of email addresses and I took the liberty of subscribing all of them to this list :)

I have really enjoyed meeting so many of you!

Dorothea has created a summary of our meeting and I encourage you to read it. Find it at https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Local_Chapters/Congress_201708

I think we all share a strong desire to grow our local communities and organize ourselves. Some of us are farther along than others, and there is a lot we can learn from each other. That is why I wanted all of us to be part of this list, as a communications channel for learning and sharing for local organizers.

I know we all just met in person a few weeks ago, but I think it would be nice if we could all introduce ourselves and perhaps share in a few lines what your local OSM organization or group looks like, and what challenges you are facing.

Please forward this email to anyone you can think of who should be part of this, too.

Thanks and I hope to hear from you all soon!
