Default Fudcon North America 2011 -- bids opening!

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

The Fedora Project holds a number of global FUDCon events each
year. Typically the Community Architecture team's budget supports one
of these large events each Red Hat fiscal quarter (with the fiscal
year starting on March 1). This year we have the Latin American event,
FUDCon Santiago[1] in Chile, in Q2; the event for EMEA, FUDCon Zurich
in Switzerland, in Q3; and a North American FUDCon event in Q4.

In each case, typically the event will happen sometime in the first
two months of the quarter, so that we can ensure all bills are paid by
Red Hat's financial deadlines. That deadline usually comes a couple
weeks before the end of quarter, so the first two months are the ideal
time to actually stage an event. So the North American FUDCon event
will happen in either December 2010 or January 2011. The bidders will
work with the Community Architecture team to resolve the exact timing.

In the past we've often heard from community members that they'd love
to have an event in a warmer clime during the chilly winter months. We
couldn't agree more, and now we have a way to empower our community to
make that happen. FUDCon Honolulu? Maybe not, but we're open to other
possibilities! We want to find a place for the next North American
event that includes:

* Reasonable travel, room and board costs

* Availability of inexpensive or free event space

* A little warmer than Boston (we hope!)

* Active FOSS/other interested communities that might like to attend

* Consideration of academic schedules for students who want to attend

* Consideration of holidays for people in North America

* One or more organizing Fedora community members with the time and
energy to help prepare

We now have a bid process[3] that lets interested community members
propose FUDCon in their region, or even backyard. Nothing Olympic
style -- simply a way for excited Fedora folks in the locale to help
secure event space, lodging, and other logistical details. We've
already kicked this process off for FUDCon Zurich 2010, and are
looking to start this cycle for North America as well. In the summer,
after FUDCon Santiago concludes, we will kick the same process off for
Latin America again for a 2011 conference.

So here's what you need to do to get the ball rolling:

* Join the fudcon-planning list[4] and let us know you want to bid.

* Make a wiki page called [[FUDCon:Bid_for_<Your_Town>_2011]], with
the information outlined on the bid process[3] page.

The bid process will be open for a period of approximately 3 weeks. At
that point the FPL and Community Architecture teams, as major
stakeholders in the event, will go through the bids and make a
decision on where we'll locate FUDCon North America.

Default Fudcon North America 2011 -- bids opening!

Paul,

Can this be done by people outside Ambassadors? Let's say that if I
wanted to organize a FUDcon for 2011... would I need to be an
Ambassador?

That's the only question I have.

There's no listed requirement that the planners have to be Ambassadors.

I've actually never run an event booth as an Ambassador, and I helped
with the last FUDCon. Prior FUDCon experience and prior event-running
experience were things I found valuable for my own ability to help with
the organization - but then again, those aren't listed requirements either.

Being an Ambassador is not a hard and fast requirement. Much of the
work in planning a FUDCon has nothing to do with representing the
Fedora Project's values or mission. It has much more to do with
organization and dealing with vendors.

Having said that, a good FUDCon would also attract and involve
Ambassadors in the region. In fact, I wouldn't foresee a FUDCon being
successful without any Ambassador involvement at all. By the way, I
don't think Nelson was suggesting that! Having a bigger planning team
naturally makes the work more efficient, of course.

If you were looking to bid for a FUDCon for 2011, you simply respond
to the opening of bids for your region. For the Europe/Middle
East/Africa (EMEA) region, this is due to happen around the fall of
2010.

Paul,

Just to clear a couple of things:

* I'm not going rogue or am against Ambassadors. Just to know if the
possibility of this can be done by someone who is not an Ambassador.

* +1, Ambassadors need and should be involved from my perspective, as
this events have impact on local economies as well. Having Ambassador
support to deal with some local institutions that can help us is a must,
I would say.

* Don't know for sure if I want to kick in so soon. I would like to
attend first to a event, speak with people who organized it and see how
it works before going deeply.

* I've shown interest since the first moment, and I might start working
for it, maybe for 2011, but this also depends on my professional life by
the time it goes on.

Thanks in advance to all.

PS: I would like to clear that I support heavilly the work developed by
EMEA and Ambassadors, and I dont want people to believe that I am in
route of colision with them. Such a thing is not true, neither was in
the past. They have all my admiration and respect for the great work
being developed.

nelson.

I'd recommend going to the FUDCon in Zurich this fall, if you want to
get a feel for these events and - more importantly - do awesome Fedora
things and meet awesome Fedora people while you're there.

Registration is already open.
