The Local Chapters and Communities Congress 2024 (LCCC 2024) 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 the program from 2022 and event recordings!



The meeting will be held virtually on Zoom this year to allow participants to have a call in number for their region. Don't forget to register to get an invitation and the link to access the platform! Registration this year will be done through OSM US but the event is global.

Interested in participating?

You don't need to be a member of a Local Chapter to participate. If you are a local OSM community leader, are interested in building up your community, or want to learn more about what other communities are doing locally, then please join this event!
