Purpose & Impact

This FAD is an annual planning event for the EMEA community. The most active ambassadors from various countries get together to discuss what activities we should do in the next year, what events to attend, what swag to produce. The main outcome of this event is an EMEA budget proposal for the next fiscal year which includes a list of events we will spend money on, Fedora media production, and swag production. If this event didn't take place it would have a significant impact on our activity in the region in the next year. because doing such complex planning via emais and IRC would be very complicated, the budget proposal might not even be created.


This is a first draft for the agenda.
