order to keep this great momentum going, we're in need of a few good
men and women to:

- start gathering best practices that new groups can learn from
- manage day-to-day local group requests
- reach out to groups that are just starting up and need a boost of inspiration
- encourage participants to join or start Local Groups at Interaction09
- write occasional local group spotlights to demonstrate how Local
Groups are working in different locations
It's a passionate group of people to work with, and a great way to get
to know fellow IxDAers from around the world. Please contact Janna at
localgroups(at)ixda.org if you're interested.
