[Copy from talk-ch]
A number of you may remember the discussion about founding a Swiss OpenStreetMap association from last year, at the time I didn’t follow up on the idea due to many other OSM related activities and due to the fact that nobody volunteered a meeting room.
Since the underlying motivation for creating such an organisation haven’t changed and we (as in the Swiss OSM community) will have a presence at the exhibition part of GEOsummit 2012 (www.geosummit.ch) in Berne, I propose to have a founding meeting over lunch on June the 20th in Berne. Venue to be determined, but either in a restaurant in the exhibition buildings or nearby.
We have a limited number of free exhibition entrance tickets available that will be available on a first come first serve base to members of the community that want to participate in the meeting.
If you want to come, please add your name here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Swiss_OSM_Association
I will be updating the draft bylaws with some of the input from the discussion over the next couple of days. One major point missing is a good name, suggestions are welcome!
