Reposting this to the OSM-F list, as it should be of interest here:


The Local Chapters Working Group is looking for volunteers to help  
drive the local chapters process through to completion.  Since late  
last year the group has been working to set up local OSM-F chapters  
that will represent the OSM-F in local territories.  Local Chapters  
give local OSM groups the opportunity to officially represent the OSM- 
F: they can use the OSM logos and web domains and officially represent  
the OSM-F to companies, governments and media.

You can find out more about Local Chapters here: http://www.blacksworld.net/blog/2008/12/11/osm-f-update-local-chapters-are-coming/

The next phase of work for the Local Chapters Group will involve  
opening more discussions with potential local leaders and members.  We  
want to make sure that the Local chapters work to help the people on  
the ground organize mapping and OpenStreetMap activities more  
effectively.  To carry this out, we need help from some volunteers who  
can dedicate 2-4 hours a week over the next 6 weeks to get in touch  
with potential local leaders and members.

If can offer you time to call, email and engage in dialogue with  
OSMers around the world, and then work with the Local Chapters Group  
to refine the current draft, please get in touch with me (nick at osmfoundation.org 

If you are a local leader or community member who's been in contact  
with me or the Local Chapters group recently - we'll be getting back  
in touch soon.  If you have not had a chance to give you opinion, or  
if you have any more questions, please get in touch.

The latest working draft of the Federation agreement is here: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dgdmw5gt_7gtj36hhh
