Let us know if you want to setup a local chapter meeting by emailing Andrew Plumer at email@example.com. We’ll see what we can do. Specifically, we need to know - who you are, what you do, where you are, how many people you have in your vicinity who you can potentially reach. To start off with, we’ll probably need at least 5 CGS members in your local Chapter to commit to starting and running the Chapter (at least 4 meetings a year) in order for the Chapter to startup.
[b]Webspace[/b]. We can provide webspace xxx.cgsociety.org for your specific local chapter that you guys take care of. [b]Forums[/b]. Local chapters can have their own CGS forums here for you to connect with other CGS members. [b]Meetings[/b]. To start off with, the easiest thing that we can do is to provide a DVD with a slideshow of all the images in EXPOSE' 3 that can help kick off the CGS meetings. I'll also speak to some partners about getting short films and DVDs available for Chapters to have viewing nights. [b]Books[/b]. If you have a local chapter and you can get a bunch of people in your chapter who want to order Ballistic books - consolidate the order and make a bulk purchase. 5+ books have a 20% discount, 10+ books 25% and higher discount with more books. Pass the savings on to Chapter members. The books get delivered by FedEx to one location and you then pass the books on to members at the meetings. Note that EXPOSE' 3 pre-orders will start on 9 May, and you can put in bulk pre-orders for the books. [b]Posters[/b]. CGSociety and EXPOSE' 3 posters if you can help spread the word and market your local chapter events. (please note that these are probably going to have to be done 'on demand' to start with so we can't give out free posters to everyone, only to Chapters to help promote the CGS).
I’ll have to come up with the documentation and formalise the Chapters, but do please feel welcome to make suggestions or contact me personally.
