" I'm not sure if there's a particular need for a sub chapter in order to handle the conference. "
I was thinking about a Central Coast sub chapter in general terms - not necessarily just for the CGS. I also find it hard to believe nobody from UCSB has gotten involved yet - myself, I'm a Cal Poly SLO alum & in other efforts am trying to get the Mustangs involved.
" In terms of other contributions, we generally are trying to raise funds for the exhibition pack, and organize some meetings in various locals. "
Regarding sponsorship + potential membership .. I am meeting more & more GIS folks in Santa Barbara and I've recently met the folks at CIRGIS http://cirgis.org/ . Members of CIRGIS did mention interest in sponsorship opportunities at the last meeting Jan 8th 2009 - I will consider mentioning OSGeo sponsorship at the next meeting March 5.
" 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. "
Sounds good, will do * joe

there are any other ways to contribute to the Cal OSGeo Chapter, besides this
push for the AGS/CGS - I imagine some sort of 'todo list' would be
posted on the wiki http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/California ?

conference 2009, I noticed it was in Santa Ynez this year. 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.
