Good question!

First would be the creation of a project so that we can host your  
email and share  files like presentations. To do that is simple, just  
make sure you are logged into osgeo.org and request a project. The  
name should be the city-country-post-fix, so you would be  ottawa-ca  
and that would create a project page at  https://ottawa- 
ca.osgeo.org/  where you can use svn and/or WebDAV to edit the web  
page and do other things. I recommend creating a specific email list  
called 'members' (creating the email addr members at ottawa-ca.osgeo.org).

To create the project, go to https://www.osgeo.org/servlets/ 
ProjectAdd and fill out the form. The name should be as above, the  
project should be "New top-level" and "Project categories" should be  
"local-osgeo-chapters". Fill in the title and description and you are  
ready to go. If you want an index.html page, select that, otherwise  
you can use the description for the home page content.
