Guest comments or questions
Welcome Mat comment
Suggestion by Imagico (guest), that since the Welcome Mat is on a public repository, to think of ways to involve the membership before it's finalised.
> The text probably needs some updates before wider dissemination.

Question by Douglas (guest), who asked for an update about the Local Chapters' Working Group, as there are some interested OSM communities in Africa.
> The Local Chapter Working Group is currently inactive. Communities that want to become a Local Chapter can read the wiki and contact email@example.comTopics: Belgium LC app. | GDPR upd. | F2F upd. | AB upd. | AOB: Welcome Mat | Board rules mods. | Finances auditor | Guests: Welcome Mat | LC WG
