I do agree a local leader would play an important role... But, every
region has a different level of maturity. Even for The Netherlands it
would be difficult for a local leader to know about activities of the
ambassadors in his region, without him having to do some
administrative work.

example; Currently, because of my day time job, it is difficult to
make my presence in the community noticeable (no internet connection
allowed). It doesn't mean I am not active, at home I try to compensate
as much time as possible. Sharing knowledge about the Emerging
Technologies, cobbler, koan, spacewalk is still spreading the
awareness of Fedora and it's community. When possible I am helping
people with packaging, installation support and education about how to
use a system from desktop to server use. How could a local leader know
without approaching me, or me keeping him up to date?

I can imagine a local leader would ask for an overview of performed
tasks... although I would doubt about it's true effectiveness. We
should find an effective way to keep the ambassadors in the loop. An
occasional social email?  ;)
