The Local Chapters and Communities Congress 2021 (LCCC 2021) is a virtual event where leaders and members of various OSM communities, whether they are officially recognized Local Chapters of the OSM Foundation or just a regular user group of OSM mappers, come together to share stories and learn from each other. Let’s get together and see what kinds of organizational efforts we can share together to support and grow our mapping communities!

Check out last year's event!



The meeting will be held on a virtual platform called Airmeet. Don't forget to register to get an invitation and the link to access the platform!
