jonatoni added a new comment to an issue you are following:
> Ok so here is a possible text for the Council. Please add your comment and eventually missing points.
> Giving the actual situation in APAC, where the community's activity gets blocked from time to time due to the treasurer's/CC holder's unavailability, and considering also comments from NA, where these roles also are held by the same person, FAmSCo discussed the proposal to split the two roles and came up with the following:
> FAmSCo agrees that ideally the roles of the treasurer and the CC holder should be held by different persons. However, if a contributor has the full support of his region and has enough time to do both, we should not set a strict rule to avoid that.
> Note: Mindshare will add more responsibilities to the treasurer role, this should be kept in mind when choosing to work both as treasurer and as CC holder.
> FAmSCo also welcomes a two years cycle, which means that people will be asked if they want to step down and leave the job to another contributor/ambassador. Specially the CC holder job is time affording and can easily burn you out. This does not oblige the region to select a new person, but they can also keep the same for other 2 years.
> The process for issuing new community cards should be much faster and easier. FAmSco is not aware of the details of this process, but CC holders could give valid feedbacks in order to improve issuing credit cards. Therefore it woud be probably the best to involve the actual CC holders while RedHat is going to change the process.
+1 from my part, totally agree to this proposal because it allows even emergency changes and doesn't make the changing process very difficult for CC holders.

Just wanted to check Los Angeles ambassador and vicinity ambassador availabilities for an LA event here:
Open Source Summit in Los Angeles, September 11-14.
We just heard back from the Linux Foundation and they would love to have us if we are available.
If you could let me know by 8/15 (or sooner!) if you would be able to ambassador for this event. If there's enough interest, we can then set up an event page. We'd need a minimum of 2 people.
Please do not book any travel/accommodations at this time.
