NPCC seems like a great organization with lots of useful resources. If we have
sufficient connections to NYC for them to want to accept us, we should join
them whether or not we get the insurance from them. We do have two non-officer
board members in NYC, and held one event here (DebConf10), and have ties to
parts of NY state other than NYC, but that's it.

If they've dealt with a FOSS foundation before, that's useful relevant
experience for them to understand us. Even more so if the foundation's
leadership was international and mostly working remotely as volunteers.
