Loco Information
From the Ubuntu LoCo Wiki (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoFAQ)

What is a LoCo team?
A LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCo) Team is a Local Community of (in our case) Ubuntu users. A LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCo) can involve a lot of things such as local promoting, support in the local language, general support to local users and much more. Most importantly however, it lets people find other Ubuntu users near them.Why are there LoCos?
LoCos (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCos) are around to help promote or support Ubuntu and build communities in specific areas. Most LoCos (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCos) have projects such as translating or customising Ubuntu for their specific area, which is one of the things that makes Ubuntu great. The LoCos (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCos) are a very important part of the Ubuntu Community.
Why should I join a LoCo team?
There are lots of benefits and fun to be had getting involved with a LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCo) team, not only in terms of spreading awareness about Ubuntu, but also helping to develop free software in your community, improve Ubuntu and more. For more details see this page (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoTeamJoining).
Do Canonical run the LoCo teams?
No, LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCo) teams are independent groups run by the group's members. These groups are organised, run, promoted and managed independently from Canonical. Although the groups are independent, there is a very close relationship with Canonical, and Canonical work to help support groups in different ways. Canonical also try to solve serious problems in LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCo) teams. We see the relationship between LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCo) teams and Canonical as very close, and there is a mutual understand and respect both ways.
