Hi all,

I raised this on list a few months ago. 

At OKFN Labs (http://okfnlabs <http://okfnlabs/>.org/) we are looking to have stronger engagement with local groups. All of us involved in Labs are volunteering our time to give light to interesting projects around the network and beyond, by providing a channel to share and make new connections.

Instead of reproducing in full, I’ve included Rufus’ message below. If anyone is interested in being a point of contact, of course you could fill out the form linked to below, or perhaps discuss here on list?

> Subject: Request: Nominate a Tech Contact Point in your Local Group
> Hi All,
> I am writing in my capacity as one of the volunteer coordinators of Labs <http://okfnlabs.org/> :-)
> I am writing to ask for local groups to nominate *one* person as a contact point for tech-type stuff in their local group using this following really simple form (just 3 fields!)
> Simple Google Form for Nominating Tech Contact <https://docs.google.com/a/okfn.org/forms/d/1Cdr1sduin4G1I3upWVKA0k4f8_aZES7xj9qYwnhCwck/viewform>
> Why am I asking? (See also this labs github issue <https://github.com/okfn/okfn.github.com/issues/329>)
> - We want to be able to contact local groups to get tech-related stories for the regular Labs newsletter <https://github.com/okfn/okfn.github.com/issues/322>
> - We want to be able to notify local groups about the regular Labs hangouts <http://okfnlabs.org/events/hangouts/> and invite people to attend and share the cool stuff they have been doing locally
> - We want to find out more about the cool tech-related projects and events that local groups are doing (cf the newsletter)
> What will be expected of the nominated person?
> - There is minimal time commitment - minimum would be 10m a month to respond to a "anything interesting happen last month" ping and to forward on the newsletter
> - Would hope that nominated person would participate the Labs forum <https://discuss.okfn.org/c/open-knowledge-labs> - but not required
> - The nomination need not be permanent - perhaps just for an initial 6m
> Regards,
> Rufus
