This is a great idea.  Could you please start by stubbing out a wiki page for this, and then others can add onto it?

Hello all,

As a fresh new charter member, i was precisely wondering if some guidelines for charter membership were available somewhere. I was about to ask in fact, when this thread came up.
I knew that voting was one of the duties, but thought that some others may exist.
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

I support Dave's opinion here.

OSGeo has no resources for mothering its Charter Members.
