According to me, charter members should also dynamise and promote their
respective (and/or prefered) local chapter as much as possible.
That would be nice if some experienced charter members could start such
guidelines on the wiki or elsewhere where a kind of brainstorming  could
occur on that topic.
My 2 cents
