I wonder if there are any process to validate a LUG or TDF Group

Venezuela is being born in a group of users after Flisol LibreOffice
Caracas and one of the questions that we asked is whether the stand we
had and the group that was building had approval by TDF. So far there
hispanic community encompassing all Spanish-speaking countries but I
think it is necessary to jump to something more localized due to local
activities that may be generated in each country.
Sorry to insist on this thread, but I think it is very important to the
community in general LibreOffice
The intention is to have your support for the creation of user groups in
each country the intention is as follows.
- Promote the use of local activities LibreOffice (Flisol, Installfest,
exhibitions, lectures, conferences, and events)
- To promote good relations within the user group LibreOffice locally in
order to know the views of users and take appropriate action
-To provide software distribution services to raise funds to further
promote local activities, print marketing materials, purchase DVDs,
getting donations to TDF
"Attracting people to collaborate directly with projects that are above
local user groups, in the case of Spanish America, the Spanish project.
"Having a local organ representing the sponsorship requests to the
companies, and local governments.
"Any other activity that failure to perform or promote locally.
"Having a logo located to identify groups of users located in each
country. in the case of Venezuela have proposed the following.
As you can see are mainly marketing activities, this is not intended to
hijack the community as we have seen in other cases. But it aims to
create a new channel for people to come more easily to the project
LibreOffice of each region, be it that of Europe, America, Asia, Africa,
Middle East, or Hispanic.

I must say that I am not a graphic designer and the logos that I created
just aim to provide an idea of what I have in my head. Obviously we will
have to adjust to the guidelines of the mark or perform some other
template that is approved by all involved. or at least mostly.
I also think that the best way to integrate the Hispanic community in
-Use the local user groups in each country to attract people to
government projects as "The Hispanic Community LibreOffice"
-Centralize the efforts and resources around TDF through local user groups.
-Use existing resources supported by TDF such as mailing lists, irc
channel, forums, wiki, among others.
"The local user groups must not use existing resources and approved by TDF
PS: I know no other person particularly in Venezuela that LibreOffice
collaborating on the project, this can occur for many reasons.
1 .- Do not know how to collaborate in the project LibreOffice.
2 .- Do not want to collaborate.
3 .- Do not know about LibreOffice.
4 .- many others.
Is that local user groups in each country can be a great benefit to the
community Global LibreOffice
I also know that they are too busy to Menejador these things at the
moment but just as we are a community and we help each other, we should
be able to push these initiatives without much trouble but if it will
benefit the entire community. I do not intend to take care of everything
but to have at least one positive response to serve as encouragement to
carry out this work.
I hope they give me their opinions to make progress on this issue.
