* NA Event Sponsorship Planning

  There has been some recent discussion within FAmNA about how to best
  handle when and where Fedora might sponsor events in NA. The general
  motivation behind event sponsorship is that it is one part of being
  a good member of the event community we all benefit from participating
  in. While we need to recognize we can't sponsor all events, we do want
  to sponsor ones that we have a large presence at when our budget allows
  us to. This will need to be considered on a case by case basis. We intend
  to consider sponsorship of events as part of the initial budget process
  as a routine part of early event planning in the future.

  This quarter we will be sponsors of LinuxFest Northwest in Bellingham, WA
  and the SouthEast LinuxFest in Clemson, SC. The latter event will occur in
  Q2 of our fiscal year.

   - MadBus asked about ambassadors presenting to OEM vendors which resulted
     in much discussion about vendor contributions, Fedora on commercially
     available boxes, and Fedora in K-12 institutions

I would again like to thank all the participants, especially the new
ambassadors joining us for the first time tonight.
