Here are the minutes from last night's NA Ambassadors meeting, as well as some general notes:

Log: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting/2011-04-20/famna.2011-04-20-01.01.log.html

As an FYI: There was a significant deal of discussion regarding the FUDCon NA location decision,
which has not been made yet. We've been asked to give a recommendation, and I think there was
quite a bit of confusion over that, but you can read through the logs if you'd like an overview
of where we stand right now.  I'll be posting a recap to the fudcon-planning list, and it was decided
that perhaps we should organize another meeting, not necessarily exclusive to ambassadors, to work on
giving a recommendation to FAmSCo and the FPL for decision-making purposes.

If you are interested in helping in that process, I recommend that you join the fudcon-planning list
(https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/fudcon-planning), although I will certainly announce
a date for a meeting on that topic here as well.

(If anyone disagrees with anything I've said above that was present at last night's meeting, please
feel free to correct me.)
