CUAHSI - http://www.cuahsi.org/ is another example - it has a one time $2000 fee to join (quite reasonable I think).
It is a very active, very visible organization.
Related to that, I have created a list of universities that offer semester long courses
with strong GFOSS focus - several have very good online material:
If you don't see your program listed please email me the name of the course, instructor and a link
(for example, I did not get anything from UK so far).
I would like to ask Tyler to post it on the OSGeo web site (I will email you the plain html for it),
we can update it each year at the conference.
The list may provide some potential founding members for the consortium, if we decide
it is worth to form it (I am not sure).
