We need to focus on building communities

To me the first thing that should change is rather than focusing on how to
bring down chapters we should be focusing on how to further improve and
promote the affiliate network, its as simple as saying Affcom can provide
x,y,z to help support the expansion of chapters, it also has a,b,c to
assist user groups to expand...

I seam to remeber that the Affcom was originally created so Affiliates
could help each other grow, not to give individuals a stick to whip others
into submission.

I would rather a vague criteria, with groups being able to chose their own
path and obtain what ever support they need and see growth in affiliates
than see hundreds of pointless arguments about whether 5 with 100 attendees
or 6 events with 10 attendees is enough when we know that one person or
more precisely one volunteer contribute a to great deal of difference.
Our people or the people are our greatest assets not numbers
