during the last EMEA irc meeting, I proposed that we should make sure all active
communities within our region are equipped with basic booth equipment such as
roll-up banners and tableclothes.
Currently, there is just one or two tableclothes for the whole region. Not every
community has its own roll-up banners and while some do, these are not anymore
in a proper working condition (e.g. colors have started fading out, stands are
showing signs of heavy use).
Spending budget on such an initiative can be considered a good investment, since
the equipment produced will last for years and will enable our communities to
look overall more professional when representing the project during events and
conferences. We still have a significant amount of the current fiscal year's
budget unspent and we can definitely use some of it.
Does your community lack some booth equipment? Please visit the following wiki
page and let us know:

I wanted to share a resource with all Ambassadors about how to get
shoutouts / pictures / other things out onto official Fedora social
media accounts! As a reminder, there are a few official places for
Fedora, and it's possible for you to get your event(s) promoted on there
Firstly, the official places you can find Fedora are:
* Facebook: facebook.com/TheFedoraProject
* Twitter: twitter.com/fedora
* Google+: plus.google.com/+Fedora
* Instagram: instagram.com/thefedoraproject
* Telegram: telegram.me/fedoranews
* Reddit: reddit.com/r/Fedora
The above is taken from this wiki page:
If you want extra highlighting or spreading the word of something you
are planning to do or are doing, please feel free to subscribe to the
social-media mailing list! Most (if not all) of the social media account
admins are on this mailing list. You can send pictures and a quick
snippet of what you're doing, and we can spread the word with a quick post.
It's a fairly low-traffic mailing list, so you shouldn't notice any
significant increase in your inbox.
Thanks everyone! :)

from 5 November to 6 November there will the conference OpenRheinRuhr in
Oberhausen, Germany. Fedora participated there in the past  and I am
wondering if there are others that are interested in joining me to
promote Fedora there. If I get some positive feedback I will prepare
a new wiki page with up-to-date information.
