And that's okay.

A consensus upon a set of goals would help.
1) (Gateway)   Help enthusiasts find upstream projects to help
2) (Training)  Teach enthusiasts how to contribute to Ubuntu (testing,
bug triage, documentation)
3) (Structure) Coordinate and support the Ubuntu-related events of
local LUGs and/or upstream projects.
4) (Support)   Assist local Ubuntu users with support and installation
5) (Social)    Conduct Ubuntu-themed events so fellow enthusiasts can
meet and have a good time
6) (Spread)    Spread word of Ubuntu to people and organizations; grow
new users. 

Everyone can pick and choose the goals they care about, and let others
work the goals they don't care about. Like every other volunteer group.
