To increase the Quality we established a monthly Meeting for all Ambassador Mentors starting in March
One of FAmSCo's goals this year is to make sure that at least one FAmSCo member is at each regional meeting that is held.
As of the time this report was prepared, 6 regional meetings held in March had been logged.
- NA -- 2 meetings, 1 attended by Max.
- EMEA -- 3 meeting, with Joerg and Max each attending 2.
- APAC -- Looks like only 1 meeting, with no FAmSCo members in attendance.
- LATAM -- Nothing logged on the Ambassadors meetings page.

- Marketing FAD occurred in March - A number of action items came from this which directly affect the Ambassadors project.
- Brasil, Uruguay, Peru, Venezuela, Mexico and Argentina are getting ready to be at FLISoL this year.
- Some badges were produced for this event in Venezuela.
- In Latam, Linux events start in April, so we are preparing ourselves for this.
- Chile will have a FUDCon this year (We already know that all our ambassadors are OK after the earthquake. I guess we will have a few weeks before we start working on this.)
- We had one meeting with ambassadors from Chile to set the FUDCon date and the date was fixed with the Universidad Central at 15-17 July.
- Mexico is producing some wonderful marketing material (cheat cube).
- Nicaragua continues on the Free Media project (we need some sponsorship in here).
- Perú, Venezuela, Panamá and Rep. Dominicana has some new ambassadors.
- A lot of new packages and projects were added to RPMDEV. See http://rpmdev.proyectofedora.org
- We will have 2 new meetings this week to guide new contributors.
- Nothing significant.
