Hi Tim

Would love to be of assistance, although I am not sure how?! I am down here in Big Bend, Swaziland. So do let me know if, someone at the back of beyond, in dusty rural Swaziland might be useful - even in the smallest of ways?!

Hi All

There has been a lot of scurrying about behind the scenes taking place in preparation for the Africa FOSSGIS 2010 conference to be held later this year at Monash University, just outside of Johannesburg, South Africa.

If you are interested in joining the organising committee we still need help and would love to hear from you. For now immediately useful would be people to:

- manage press releases, promotion etc.
- seek out funding and sponsorship
- provide assistance with visas and travel beaurocracy
- manage registrations

I guess there are heaps of other things that we need to sort out soon so if you can help, even in a small way, don't be shy, let us know!

I have had some volunteers from beyond SA borders and it would be great to hear from more of you with names of GIS groups and organisations we can notify of our intention to run the conference.

We plan to send out formal press releases, hopefully later in this week, which we hope you will propogate for us far and wide!

Best regards
