I agree with Jeff's suggestion that we should invite global and regional 
FOSS4G chairs and LOC members to join the OSGeo conference committee. 
LOC committee members typically have gathered significant knowledge in 
running FOSS4G events, and we should tap into this experience in 
deciding on the next FOSS4G.

This is particularly pertinent this time around as a number of our 
committee members have withdrawn from voting as they are involved in one 
of the North America FOSS4G bids.

Current members are listed here:

Please speak up if you have experience with running FOSS4G events, and 
can spare some time to help select future events. (This will involve you 
voting on which city will hold FOSS4G 2014). Once you have spoken up, we 
can go through the motion of formalising that in our wiki.
