Stacy, I am interested in helping LPI to start an affiliate in
Portugal. The only issue is that I am not Portuguese and as such dont
speak much Portuguese.
I work in Lisbon as an IT Consultant so I know a few companies and
people (mainly IT) with whom I can speak and get the ball rolling but I
think (correct me if I am wrong) a Portuguese person would be more
Stacy, if you or anyone else on the list knows any Portuguese IT people
who would be willing to help than I can contact them and get things started.
Let me know what you think.

>Reiner Brandt, our new German Affiliate, earlier today mentioned that he was interested in helping other EMEA groups become LPI Affiliates, and he specifically mentioned Portugal (Coincidence? I don't believe in them!). We are working *specifically* to take on additional Affiliates with greater efficiency and effectiveness over the next few months. If you are interested in helping us in Portugal, email me and I will get you started.
