Do you want to Ask the #OpenStreetMap Foundation Board Anything? We're running a panel Q&A discussion at State of the Map (@SotM@twitter.com) in a few weeks.
More details here (& how to ask a Q):
The O in #OpenStreetMap is Open and our community is very open to new members, new contributors, new dabblers, new sponsors, new joiners. If you want to know more about that please read and follow the links here: https://www.openstreetmap.ie/about-osmie/ #GISchat #osmIRL #OpenSource #mapping
Hello @firstname.lastname@example.org! Did you miss our call for proposals? It's time to put it all together in a 5-minutes lightning talk :) #SotM2021 https://twitter.com/sotm/status/1399145998358913030
@Som89 ACM can be regular of associate membership, you should have had a choice. You can email MWG to switch to regular membership.
The only difference is that regular members are legally members under UK law, which has some privacy implications, and can be elected to the board of directors

If that worries you too, please become a voting member of the #Openstreetmap Foundation - and maybe even join a working group. Governance begins with you meddling in and you are welcome ! https://twitter.com/joshsimmons/status/1397625604493643776
@CjMalone I can imagine! 🙂 Qgis is pretty powerful and can do a lot. Which can lead to more complexity for simple uses. 🙂
What ever works for you
@CjMalone how are you loading osm data into qgis? You could run osm2pgsql to import osm data into a local postgresql server and point qgis at that? or load some shapefiles from geofabrik (where I work) download.geofabrik.de . If you need any help with any of that, just let me know.
I haven't used it properly, but I've heard Mapertive is supposed to be easier for that too, have you tried that?
Mapping USA is a free #OpenStreetMap virtual event on May 20-22nd. It includes an informal Mappy Hour, ½ day of talks, and a day of workshops, birds of a feather sessions and mapathons. Details: https://osmus.civicrm.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=23
