Smaller local EA groups have the difficulty that if no one is willing to lead, the group will generally cease to exist. Since there are a number of EAs looking for volunteer opportunities, could it make sense to have a remote leader? This sounds strange because the main idea of having local groups is that in-person connection. However, I could imagine that a fair amount of the work of organizing could be done remotely and then the remote person would interface with local officers who actually run the events in person. I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I have not seen it on the EA forum.
