Subject: [Ambassadors] Announcing the next FUDCon APAC?
Credit goes to Sirko for the original idea - he suggested this at the
Phnom Penh FAD last year and I think it's a great idea that we should
probably think deeper about and act on before it is forgotten.
The current call for bid for FUDCon happened in November, got awarded
in January and is happening in June. Overall we have about 6 months
to get everything in place to do the event, which is just about enough
time for teams that have experience and resources in organizing
events. However, it could be better. We could open the bid for the
next FUDCon for the region ~2-3 months before the dates of the current
FUDCon and after discussions, announce the winner for the bid at the
current FUDCon. That would give the next team about a year to get
everything in place.
+1. This would be a great idea.
We discussed this a bit at FAD Phnom Penh. Thank you for raising it up.
That is, we could make a call for bids for FUDCon APAC 2016 about
(maybe last week or March or beginning of April) and time discussions
such that we reach a decision just before FUDCon Pune at the end of
June. We could then announce the venue for the next FUDCon APAC
chapter during the event, probably at the close of the second or the
Once we end with an agreement on this, I will make a call for bidding.
Moreover, I think the final decision for next FUDCon location should be
made 1-1.5 month before the current FUDCon. We can have more chances to
invite, at least, one person in the next organization team to the
current FUDCon. It could be good experience for them to make FUDCon
better and better. It may not be necessary if we believe that that guy
certainly attends the current FUDCon.
It won't be much of a surprise for those who attend the APAC
ambassador meetings or for FAmSCO or the FPL, but it could become a
nice little tradition that we form for the event. This could also be
adopted by FUDCon LATAM or even Flock.
