There have been some requests in the past regarding the creation of a Nxt Foundation branch in other parts of the world, though things were not able to move forward, for one reason or another. However, with ANG, this will be one of the primary goals as localization can be a great benefit to the community as well as to promote decentralization. Affiliate organizations, perhaps with the ANG name and the extension of the region of the members, will have some set requirements as well as benefits.
These Affiliate Organizations should not be confused with the meetup groups that ANG plans to organize. Though larger meetup groups may end up creating an affiliate organization for various reasons, this will not be a requirement.
