Took me a lot longer to cycle back on this email than I wanted, but
is a discussion we should definitely have.
What were your ideas and thoughts on putting together something
to represent the Campus Ambassadors? I am definitely a fan of
some fliers or other easily distributable info sheet on the program
help encourage students at universities to get involved.
As far as internal structure / hierarchy goes, what were your
on my wiki page draft? Were there any details that seemed
to you or maybe could be reworded? I'm still meaning to edit it and
the revision that event reports can go on the Community Blog *OR*
personal blogs, as a benefit for personal branding for an Ambassador
(this was discussed in a FAmNA meeting two weeks ago).

I think that one thing that may be useful to set as part of the goals
to try to inspire teachers and staff on campus to become part of
ambassadors and campus ambassadors.

In other hand it may be difficult for some countries this level of
sponsoring. Most of the reimbursement process is made by paypal. In
some countries you can not get funds by paypal. Some of the countries
that you can get the funds you can only used as a electronic wallet and
you can not cash that money. For some people electronic money is
useful, but not for all. So we have to be careful to not create
unrealistic expectations regarding sponsoring.
Just my two cents on this topic.
