Perhaps it's unfortunate that Victoria used the
term "local committee". Perhaps "local members
of the Organizing committee" would be better.
I would amend the above to be:
1. FOSS4G2009 subcommittees. For example, the
Workshop/Lab Committee. The chairperson will be
local, and will be a member of the FOSS4G2009
committee. Subcommittees make non-binding
recommendations to the FOSS4G2009 committee:
2. FOSS4G2009 committee. This committee will have both
local members and non-local members, with the chairperson
being local, and answers to:
3. OSGeo Conference committee, who answers to:
4. OSGeo Board.
For FOSS4G2007, there was no "voting" by the
"local committee" - all decisions that needed
a 'committee vote' were done by the "FOSS4G2007
