I cannot attend the foss4g  but will be in Denver for OSM's State of
the Map.  I am very interested to learn more about what the local
chapters in other countries are doing as we start organizing our own
in the Philippines.  Is the AGM still part of the conference?  Do I
still need to register to the conf to attend the AGM/local chapter
lighnitng talks?
