Since nearly a decade new mappers in Switzerland get a welcome message pointing them to the mailing list, relevant social media accounts (since a couple of months including a FP page), the wiki and the SOSM website. 

Other activities include regular presence at conferences and similar events, joint projects with WMF Switzerland and other organisations with similar aims (chopen, opendata.ch etc.) and promoting OSM in a educational context (https://openschoolmaps.ch/).

We currently don't promote the existing forum as we don't want to split limited resources over too many places, once the existing forum has been migrated to the new service, it may make sense to regroup around the Discourse service, but there are pro and cons to that and in the end the Swiss community will need to come to a consensus on that.

I'm not going to go in to details on all the services SOSM offers, but I will point out that we  see our main role in promoting OSM and providing services to the community, not in banging the drum for SOSM itself.
