  1. Name (once we decide, I'll start the page on the OSGeo wiki):
  • PDX-OSGEO
  1. Region of group.

Match OR-URISA (Oregon and SW Washington). Cugos gave us Oregon so we are clear of overlap (some rounding needed).

  1. "OSGeo Chapter" should prepare a mission and objectives indicating

the scope of the planned chapter (geographic or linguistic extent for instance).

>With thanks and apologies to CUGOS (http://cugos.org/), here is a rough initial draft.

The OSGeo OSGIS-PDX Chapter strives to promote the local use of Open Source Geospatial software, and to promote the goals and projects of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation. The Chapter is focused on the Oregon/SW Washington area. The group hosts meetings providing presentation, discussion, and educational opportunities to the local members and focuses on on annual conference.

4. “OSGeo Chapter” should propose an official representative to liaise with the OSGeo Board. If accepted by the board, the representative will be an officer of OSGeo.

  • Percy


5. List of initial members.

  • Opt-in. Darrel will use google form to have people sign up. We thought opt in was less evil and opt out.
