Local Usenix Chapters

Recently we formed what we thought was a local chapter of USENIX.
We contacted the national to ask what we should do, and they were
no help -- they literally said "do what you want, and let us know
afterwards." That sounded pretty odd, but we went ahead and now
there is a Michigan Usenix [[if you'd like to join, send mail to
mi-usenix-request at lokkur.uucp]]. We let them know, and they said
they'd put a note in the next ;login.
But after looking over the ;login. entry, it doesn't look like
we're a local chapter. In fact, *none* of the groups listed look
like they're local chapters. They all look like UNIX groups that
;login. is kind enough to provide listings for. So . . .
Is there any such a thing as a local chapter? If not, somebody'd
better tell the office -- we were very clear about what we were
doing. Should we stop using the name?
Should there be locals? Obviously there's a bunch of folks in
Southeast Michigan who think so -- about 100 at last count.
