OSArch is a non-proft group and relies on volunteers and building our network of professionals, organizations and companies involved in the projects we support. Having a strong social media presence is part of getting the word out.
There is also a page on who maintains our OSArch_Digital_Infrastructure
We have a number of social media accounts, both on free/libre open systems and closed proprietary systems.
Please follow the accounts and share the posts you find interesting.

OSArch.org is the Open Source Architecture Project. We support Free/Libre & Open Source software for Architecture, Engineering, Construction & Building Operations. We'd like your help in strengthening our organization by learning from your organizational experience. We are young and growing rapidly. After starting in February we now have about 800 users on our forum with 300 discussion. Our wiki has about 100 pages and 100 users. It feels like we're here to stay and growing.
Now we're ready to begin thinking about an organizational and legal structure. This will allow us to seek and accept central funding, and begin sponsoring selected projects.
If you have time for a chat please let me know so we can arrange something. Alternatively just hop into our forum and announce yourself.
Our forum: https://community.osarch.org/discussions
You can read more about who we are from our wiki front page: https://wiki.osarch.org/index.php?title=Home_of_OSArch
I look forward to hearing from you
