+## Listing yourself as a Potential Speaker
+To list yourself as someone interested in being an Apache Speaker, there are
+two steps involved. The first is to create a FOAF file for yourself, including
+a couple of key pieces of information. The second is to list yourself in the
+speaking DOAP file.
+### Creating your FOAF file
+Creating a FOAF file for yourself is very easy, assuming you don't already 
+have one available. Details on how to create a FOAF file, along with a
+handy wizard to guide you through the process, are available at
+[][] .
+When creating your FOAF file, as a potential speaker we do require you
+to include a few key bits of information. These are:
+ * Your location
+ * The projects you are involved in (include foundation wide ones too if you're
+   happy to talk about these)
+ * Your twitter ID (so we can point people at your speaking history on 
+   [Lanyrd][])
+### Listing yourself in the Speakers DOAP file
+Now, if you haven't already done so, checkout the committers directory from
+    svn co
+Edit *local-outreach/LocalSpeakers.rdf* and add yourself in as a
+helper. If your FOAF file is in svn and showing up on,
+add in:
+     <helper>
+       <foaf:Person rdf:resource="urn:org:apache:[your username].rdf" />
+     </helper>
+If you have your FOAF file externally hosted, then the **rdf:resource**
+should point to the URL of the file.
+For an apache committer with username "foo", your entry would be one of:
+     <helper>
+       <foaf:Person rdf:resource="urn:org:apache:foo.rdf" />
+     </helper>
+     <helper>
+       <foaf:Person rdf:resource="" />
+     </helper>
+Within 24 hours of committing your addition to
+*local-outreach/LocalSpeakers.rdf*, you should appear in the web
+application as a potential speaker! Head over to 
+a day later a check you're listed properly.
