Perhaps this could be devolved to the projects and local chapters... If
an organisation wants to hold an OSGeo Teach-In, they need approval from
either a local chapter or a project PSC.  This would be a good
indication that the organisation is active in the community.

I wonder if we could make the license fee contingent on the structure of
the event; for-profit events have to pay the licensing fee?  Or maybe
only exclude non-profit events organised by a local chapter (or local
chapter in formation)?
