Hi all,

I've been organizing the EMEA Ambassadors IRC meetings for a while now, 
and while I am certainly going to continue to attend them, I wonder if 
perhaps someone else within our EMEA community would like to take a turn 
at putting together the agendas and leading the meetings.

We're due to have our next one pretty soon (probably should be next 
Wednesday) but I will be in the USA all next week and unable to attend 
that meeting.

Seems like it might be a good time to let a volunteer in the community 
step up and take charge.

These meetings represent an opportunity to have our Ambassadors across 
the region stay in communication with each other, discuss budget issues 
and resource issues, and also coordinate their efforts, so that we can 
feel like a larger team and not a few pockets of people in different 

Anyone want to step up and make next week's meeting happen?

There have also been a few requests to hold EMEA meetings 
every-other-week -- one meeting per month focusing on events and 
logistics, and the other focusing on one specific question or project 
that is important to the region.

It's obvious that I haven't had the time to make that happen, but with 
some community leadership from Ambassadors who have things they would 
like to discuss, it easily could.

It's important to me to make sure that we continue to keep our core 
group of EMEA ambassadors strong, while also growing new leadership and 
contributions throughout this very large region.

In Egypt, for example, we've got a growing team of Ambassadors who are 
doing fantastic work, and I hope we can include them in our EMEA 
meetings and discussions more than we have in the past (which has just 
been me sending them resources).  I'd like to cut myself out as the 
middle man and continue to grow a team of volunteers in the region who 
are all helping each other out.
