This is the main page for Latam Ambassadors FAD, which is a FAD focused on Fedora Ambassadors internal organization.

Justification

This FAD is focused on solving some problems of communication, organization and others:

  • Communication problems.- This has provoked discussions between ambassadors from different countries and lack of coordination in the organization of joint activities (See the tactica's message here). In addition, sometimes meetings become long and disorderly due to the lack of clear rules of behavior and good leadership.
  • Budget problems.- these last months there have been budget problems due to the new reforms in the community which we could not adapt easily, for example see the potty's message here
  • Problems of logistics.- with the last changes in the community has been difficult to produce the necessary swags for the events (like FLISOL) and as always the problem of refunds is recurrent (for example see the tickets [1] [2] [3]).
  • Problems of impact of the community.- over the years has always talked about the role of ambassadors to publicize the advantages of using fedora, join to the community and above all "recruit new collaborators." However, there is not yet a coherent strategy to attract collaborators, since each Latin American country has a different reality, some of them with a very low user base.

For the above reasons, it is necessary to have a FAD where we focus exclusively on solving these problems to can fulfill our objetives like promote fedora and recluit new colaborators.

¿Why on-site FAD?

Because we need time to discuss these issues with full freedom and time to make decisive decisions for the whole fedora latinamerican community, because in this event it is intended to create and discuss rules of conduct and organization that will help to fulfill the objectives of the ambassadors throughout weather.

Purpose

  1. Basically our purpose is create a work plan for Latam Ambassadors aligned to new Fedora Project objetives with the following primary goals:
    • Create a strategy for latam ambassadors to improve their activities(events, meetups, enrollment process, etc) to align to new fedora objectives.
    • Create complementary rules for event organization/coordination, fund request, tickets management process and similar task.
    • Establish procedures for the planning of budgets according to the last changes in the fedora project.
    • Establish a internal council for meeting chairing and their work rules.
    • Establish a ticket reviewer, their work rules and ticket review criteria.
  2. In addition, we will attempt to complete the following secondary goals as time allows:
    • Establish a strategy for swags production and distribution for all latam countries.
    • Create strategies for reimbursement process for latam countries.
    • Establish criteria to prioritize important events to allocate resources.
    • Create a calendar of important events in Latin America (FLISOL, FISL, LATINOWARE, etc) and by individual countries.
    • Plan reinduction / mentoring sessions for ambassadors in new policies.

Impact

The completion of these goals will create the following positive change within the project:

  • Tener un concejo que lleve las reuniones apropiadamente y se encargue de coordinar todos las actividades de los embajadores de latam.
  • Al establecer politicas complementarias se logrará mejorar el tiempo de aprobación de los tickets y la calidad de los mismos.
  • Las estrategicas que se elaboren deberan hacer crecer la comunidad tanto en cantidad de participantes como en participacion activa y productiva.

These outcomes connect with the following Fedora Community Objectives by explain connection here.
