Supporting SotM-Africa through the OSMF ticket sales system

Enquiry from team planning State of the Map (SotM) Africa about whether they can use the same platform that OSMF uses to sell their tickets. Their issue is not technical, but that they are looking for an organisation which could handle ticket invoicing "in the name of SotM Africa". If the board agrees to manage the financial part of ticket selling, Christine Karch (SotM WG lead) volunteered for the configuration of the SotM Africa in CiviCRM.
