Hi Laura, The Brasilian community has a long history with many twists. At one time there was a proposed chapter that the Board has recognized but was never founded; and the Affiliations Committee has recommended the user group route for the community in their current aspiration to form a chapter. I am really glad that the community has accepted the recognition and opened the way for a real Brasilian chapter to be founded in the near-future.
