This makes it sound too much like ALE is for members of the location
in question, and ALE is explicitly for Atlanta.  Emory had a LUG that
faded away (LUGE), and I wouldn't want anyone to think that they
needed an Emory association to come to the meeting.

On the other hand, if there are going to be several locations, I agree
that we do need a way to distiguish them, but I suggest more general
geographic areas, like ALE Central, ALE Northwest, ALE Cobb.
