Humm, sorry if I was to harsh on that comment :)
I was just trying to simplify things, since running a local chapter is a lot
of work and until you get to 3 or 5 guys running the show (usually) there
isn't a need for hierarchy .
But hey, you guys decide what is the best model over there :)
The Global Chapters Committee should be documenting all these different
operational models so that each chapter has a framework (and real world
examples) of the model more suitable to their environment.
