Add an Event

FAmNA will happily provide approved ambassadors with resources to share Fedora with people at events or just in their area. FAmNA provides several items that can be handed out, these include:

  • Live/Install Media
  • T-shirts
  • Stickers, Buttons, Tattoos, etc.

To get an Ambassador Kit for ad hoc events or other SWAG to give away at events, visit the FAmNA Requests Trac instance. You must have a Fedora Account to create a request.

[edit] FAmNA Meetings

North American ambassadors meet on irc.freenode.net, #fedora-meeting, on each Tuesday at 9pm Eastern US time. See upcoming meetings and past meeting minutes.

[edit] Tasks

During meetings, tasks are assigned to individuals willing to complete work. Usually, this is simple stuff like announcing an event on mailing lists, blogging about something cool, etc. However, we do have more lengthy tasks as well. Tasks are now tracked on the FAmNA Trac.
