Hello APAC Ambassadors,
Cc: country budget owners in each APAC country ,
I checked tickets in APAC trac  and CC report from Jsimon  and updated
the budget status in Q2-FY2014 .
Please take a look and let me know if something missing.
IMO, we are not in a good situation.
At beginning of the year (Jan-Feb 2013), each country proposed their budget
plan  and then I summarized all of those plans into one APAC budget plan
for Ambassadors in FY2014 . Fedora Board and Budget Owners based on that
to allocate budget for our events/activities.
Actually, after two quarters (Q1-Q2), almost events/activities were not
happened. In fact, we spent much lower than what we planned.
You can see in Q1, we spent only $1,074 in $2,800 allocated so the left
amount was $1,726. It is worse in Q2 when we just spent $992 in $7,400
allocated, then we left $6408(!)
I hope there are some missing items not updated right now but if so, it
would not be much, I think. But if it is a fact, it should be a bad fact:
Almost events/activities we planned have not been happened; and the truth
is APAC Ambassadors have not got many events/activities (as compared to
other area such as EMEA).
Another real fact we have to face now is: if we spent lower than what we
plan, next year, our budget may be cut off.
So, I would like to raise this issue up to all of us. We need to work
together much closer to get things toward faster.
After a short discussion in FAmSCo meeting last week  I would like to
propose some other activities we can use the left money:
- produce more swag (pins, buttons, badges, etc.) with EMEA.
- for FAD APAC this end of the FY to make the APAC plan for the next FY.
Any more ideas and comments are highly appreciated.
