     meeting minutes

   - inode0 proposes that we sponsor the Utah Open Source Conference either
     with remaining Q2 funds or if that isn't possible with Q3 funds and

   - Retractable banners & Posters

     VileGent completed getting two large retractable banners ready to go
     and now someone just needs to buy them (it turns out these are a bit
     too large to fit inside event boxes)

     VileGent is also working on getting artwork based on the four foundations
     ready to create posters that will fit inside the event boxes to be printed
     locally

     We thank VileGent for all this work

* Tasks [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/NA/Tasks]

   - pcalarco inquired about running another batch of ambassador polos, a call
     will go out soon to get some more ambassadors in Fedora blue polos

     Some discussion of the idea of producing Fedora button down shirts was
     intermingled, many like the idea but they don't need to be ambassador
     specific

   - inode0 proposed in general terms the plan for awarding a trip to FUDcon
     to one North American Campus Ambassador this fall

     after some discussion the general plan was agreed to and inode0 will
     follow-up with a detailed description for release as soon as possible

* Open Floor

   - No discussion

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