Maybe you could try using the new LibreOffice Vols micro-blog site here.

Just an idea

Please make sure that the meeting is logged. We need these to be more 
efficient. That's if you are meeting to organise anything, we don't 
really need to see chatter. You never know, some of us could drop in to 
help you out if we know plans in certain districts. If we are organised 
right from the start we we get better results.

There should be a set hierarchy:

International Marketing meetings / projects -- logged
National Marketing meetings / projects -- logged
State / Provincial Marketing meetings / projects -- logged
Regional (these encompass more than one city) Marketing meetings / 
projects -- logged
City Marketing meetings / projects -- logged
City district Marketing meetings / projects -- logged

@Marc - honestly, IMO, it's a bit premature to envision that many people
- reality is going to call for a lot less formality...precisely from an
efficiency stand point. My best guess is that, if we are very
successful, there would not be enough people, actually willing to work,
for a year or more - perhaps much more. (if we are not successful [how
to define] then it won't matter anyway)

or let me do it this way - flip that over

Ben starts announcing that he would like to like to meet up with other
folks interested in LibreOffice (or Open Standards..or whatever strikes
Ben's fancy pretty much)

A coffee clutch - the key is to get together. The first thing, from what
I read, most important to the wider organizational view is a collection
of pictures (or video) of the gathering. 

Informal sounds right, folks interested in LibreOffice talking about it.

Not to say that eventually there might not be some formality but even
that would be just a Impress file on a laptop perhaps. 

Again I'd think that a micro-blog is just about right for the informal
coffee clutch type get together - Ben (or others in other towns) really
could just login with his twitter account, open the NYC Coffee Clutch
group and tweet out that he would like to get together with anyone
interested in LibreOffice (or whatever he likes) - with as much or as
little specificity to time/place, again, as he likes - the tweet can be
re-tweeted, the link to the group can go in emails or other tweets or
blogs..whatever, that group link is hard...any how I ramble now..but I
hope Ben was thinking informal and that he goes for it...hi @ben..

Same for others - Seattle comes to mind as a good place where there
maybe a group waiting for someone to take the first step..

Best wishes,
