Thanks for the plug, Brian!

If you aren't familiar with FOSS4G, it's the premier international conference for Open Source Geospatial Software. We're expecting 1,000-1,200 people from all over the world. You can get a feel for what to expect by browsing this year's program: http://2013.foss4g.org/provisional/index.html

The Portland conference will be held September 8-13th, 2014.

We'd love to have involvement from anyone who's interested. We'll have lots of work to do over the coming months, and every little bit helps.

If you want to be closely involved, please join the foss4gloc mailing list, here:  http://lists.pdxosgeo.org/sympa/info/foss4gloc – we'll keep the pdx-osgeo list up to date, as well, but most of the work will happen on the foss4gloc list.

We're having our first monthly organizing meeting this coming Monday. We'll have a phone and/or video conference as well, for those who aren't in the area. Details are available here: http://calagator.org/events/1250464688

Even if you can't help out, we hope you'll still be able to attend – or better yet, present.

Darrell Fuhriman
Chair, Local Organizing Committee

At this point best way to learn more is to sign up on the PDX mailing list (http://groups.google.com/group/pdx-osgeo) and introduce yourself. (Though meetings are in Portland, the chapter for Oregon/S. Washington not just Portland.)
