Hi Laura,

The Brasilian community has a long history with many twists. At one time
there was a proposed chapter that the  Board has recognized but was never
founded; and the Affiliations Committee has recommended the user group
route for the community in their current aspiration to form a chapter. I am
really glad that the community has accepted the recognition and opened the
way for a real Brasilian chapter to be founded in the near-future.

Best regards,
