Basic FAmSCo activity

What is this section's purpose?
This section gives some quick health indicators about how much FAmSCo is communicating. Sometimes FAmSCo members can't make a meeting due to travel or conflicts with their $DAYJOB, but the combination of meeting attendance plus email is a nice metric.

FAmSCo meetings

FAmSCo held 3 meetings in June. Attendance was as follows:

  • 3 out of 3 -- Max, Susmit, Joerg
  • 2 out of 3 -- Maria, David
  • 1 out of 3 -- Luca

So far this year, FAmSCo has held 20 meetings. Overall attendance has been:

  • 20 out of 20 -- Joerg, Susmit
  • 17 out of 20 -- David
  • 16 out of 20 -- Maria
  • 15 out of 20 -- Max
  • 12 out of 20 -- Luca

Regional meetings

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 June had been logged.

  • NA -- 2 Meetings, one attended by David
  • EMEA -- 2 Meetings, both attended by Joerg
  • APAC -- 2 Meetings, -
  • LATAM -- no Meeting logged

FAmSCo mailing list

FAmSco's mailing list received 28 messages this month, which is not good. We need to pick up the pace of the mailing list discussion.

  • Joerg -- 15
  • Susmit -- 6
  • David -- 4
  • Max -- 2
  • Luca -- 1

General accomplishments or decisions

What is this section's purpose?
This section discusses the non-regional achievements within either FAmSCo or the larger Ambassadors project from this month.
  • announced tweaked Ambassador Membership Process [1]
  • started the Mentoring Survey and collecting the answers [2]
  • worked out official Ambassadorial Milestones for the F14 Schedule[3]


Where does FAmSCo's budget come from?
The FAmSCo budget rolls up into the larger Community Architecture expenses. On that page, FAmSCo's budget is represented by the "Regional support" line item.
