Hey Gang,

Dave and Jeff here again. We just wanted to remind the group of our  
need to choose two new co-chairs.  If you are interested in taking on  
the role then please contact us off-line.  If you know someone who  
might be a good candidate, ask them to step forward and help the local  
OSGeo community.  We think it would be great to have the theme of the  
next chapter meeting be the “new co-chair kickoff”.

If you have any questions we can address them on the mailing list or  
through personal e-mail.
Thanks for everyone's energy in keeping the momentum of the OSGeo  
local Chapter going.
