I fully agree we should clarify the purpose of OSGeo.be.
My 2c:
bring people with common interests together (probably already OSGeo
members), who want to get into contact with peers and live in a
relatively short geographic distance from each other.

The mission of OSGeo.be is (amongst others) to help OSGeo to grow, and
trough local Chapters, we should get more sense for community, and by
getting to know other members, it becomes more and more easy to contribute.

I think an important point is also to help our neighbours if they want
to use open source and learn them how they can contribute.
And contributing is easy. Not always writing code and committing, but
also sharing experiences, help others, bring other similar communities
together (like the OSM community).

When is the next f2f meeting scheduled?
