Hey all,
You can register to become a branch here:

We would definitely feel more comfortable having branches speak for the
organization at Maker Faires. The only really important piece to note is
that you cannot be promoting hardware projects / products at the table
along with promoting OSHWA. This is due to our policy
<http://www.oshwa.org/policies/> as well as keeping our non-profit status
with the IRS.
