The OSMF is in the process of setting up a network of national and regional chapters.
Established Local Chapters
So far we have the following formally established foundation Local Chapters (LCs):
 "Note, while OSGeo Oceania is currently the recognised local chapter in the region, we are fully supportive of other groups that may form in Oceania with the intent of becoming a local chapter. One example would be a national entity that determines their interests would better represented as an independent local chapter. If this was to occur, OSGeo Oceania would be fully supportive and will not claim to speak for groups who do not wish to be represented."
Local Chapter representative on the Advisory Board
Each formally established Local Chapter can have one representative on the Advisory Board that the OSMF Board of Directors can consult.

Becoming a Local Chapter
If you or your organisation are interested in the topic please contact the Secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Local Chapters mailing list is dedicated to the discussion of topics and issues of interest to the Local Chapters of the OpenStreetMap Foundation, as well as those groups interested in becoming a Local Chapter.
