Hi Nigel, we would love to have a US based community of LibreOffice volunteer advocates, but it looks like in the US we have a large number of users but we completely miss volunteers who show up to help the global project with activities such as staffing a booth at SCALE. TDF is the organization representing the LibreOffice community, and has a budget to help these activities to happen (for instance, we can reimburse travel and lodging expenses for events, and the production of swag for the booth). Unfortunately, the old volunteers coming from the OOo project have retired or have passed away too early, and nobody has shown up to replace them. We have had to sadly turn down similar opportunities at other US FOSS events during 2022, and we don't see how to solve the issue.

We would be happy to work with you and with other organizers of FOSS events in the US to attract volunteer advocates for LibreOffice. Any suggestion? Should we organize a video chat to discuss the topic? I would be happy to organize the video chat, inviting you and other people who can help us, at least with suggestions about actions to address the issue.

Does it sound feasible for you? In any case, thanks for your message, which shows that we have loyal users and followers in the US, and best regards, Italo

Hi Mike Is a representative of TDF the only option? I'm sure there are some top notch LO supporters and/or developers within a reasonable distance of SCALE. 
With solid briefing from TDF beforehand such manning of a table at the event could demonstrate well the nature of the LO project as truly collaborative rather 
than a quasi-proprietary product of TDF. Nige Mon Jan 09 15:00:48 GMT+00:00 2023 Mike Saunders<>: Hi Ilan! On

TDF Team are in north America, so I don't think anyone can attend in March, I'm afraid. If something changes though, we'll let you know :-) Have a good event!
