I think it would be appropriate to suggest a Central Coast Sub-Chapter for the California OSGeo Chapter. This chapter could potentially range from Monterrey (or San Luis Obispo) to Santa Barbara / Ventura - may be a bit large I realize.

I'm not sure if there's a particular need for a sub chapter in order to
handle the conference. Once again the Davis crew will be traveling to
that conference already for academic reasons. We encourage more local
members to participate with us.
In terms of other contributions, we generally are trying to raise funds
for the exhibition pack, and organize some meetings in various locals.
Other ideas, suggest other venues for outreach, or projects (coding,
documenting, teaching) that people might want to collaborate on.
Feel free to start a list on the wiki page and if you know some folks
get them to join the list so we can at least discuss topics. I find it
hard to believe no one at UCSB has gotten involved yet.
