Thanks Jo and Mike for the useful round-up, and to Saber for offering to
design the logo ;-)
We also talked about having a call (personal preference) or IRC chat
soon to keep the momentum going, and to maybe formalise some roles,
follow up on the issues below etc. Probably worth doing that in July if
we can before hols kick in, and to prepare for the AGI conference in
September - how about 26th as a suggestion?

	1) People felt that the name "local chapter" was not really
	for a UK audience, so we're going with OSGeo:UK as the proper
title. We
	have permission to create a new logo (within certain
limitations) so we
	will discuss that shortly.

What about our logo?

	Dear All,
	As you're no doubt aware, the 2nd OSGIS event was held at the
	of Nottingham Centre for Geospatial Sciences, and by all
accounts it was a
	big success.
	Thanks to everyone who attended both days, or who presented.
Thanks also
	to everyone who attended the 2nd AGM of the UK local chapter.
Finally- hi
	to anyone who's new to the list.
	A brief summary of the AGM:


	2) We have a couple of new people looking to be more deeply
involved in
	the chapter- so welcome Matt Walker as our training coordinator
and Mike
	Saunt who's going to have a more strategic role. Along with our
	active members, we have a reasonable committee (which sounds
very formal,
	but isn't)- and enough structure to consider setting up as a
	association. More on that in a later email.
	3) We discussed the possibility of holding our own workshops,
	courses, and code sprint-type events, and a number of
	including the Centre for Geospatial Sciences, have kindly
offered their
	premises for this.
	4) We have had an offer from the Association of Geographic
	(AGI) to hold funds for us, rather than worry about our own bank
	This is something they already do for a number of other small
	organisations, and would be extremely useful. I'm awaiting
	information on what would be required to set this up.
	5) Ideally we would like to have some sort of sponsorship of the
	conference, or at the very least a meetup of the chapter. We're
	into how best to achieve this.
	6) There is growing interest in an open source implementation of
	from a number of different organisations, and OSGeo:UK may be a
good place
	to coordinate this- we'll see!
	This is not an exhaustive list- but it's already a long email so
I'll send
	some more information out shortly- and feel free to chip in with
	or comments.
	I should make clear that OSGeo:UK does have a mission statement
	objectives that align closely with those of OSGeo
internationally. We may
	look at changing our objectives as the chapter grows, but our
aim is to
	provide a neutral place for both companies and individuals to
	involved in open source geospatial software. There are likely to
be some
	concerns about competition, particularly for small businesses,
but I
	sincerely hope this will be a place where profiles get raised,
and bigger
	opportunities come along as a result.
	Hopefully the additional interest generated at this year's event
will help
	us move the chapter forward. I certainly hope so!
	All the very best
