Chapter 1. FAmSCo Activity


This section gives some quick health indicators about how much FAmSCo is communicating. Sometimes FAmSCo members can't make a meeting due to travel or conflict, but the combination of meeting attendance plus email is a nice metric.

1.1. Meetings

FAmSCo held 3 meetings in May. Attendance was as follows:
  • 3 out of 3 -- Joerg, Susmit, Maria, David
  • 2 out of 3 -- Max
  • 1 out of 3 -- Luca
  • 0 out of 3 -- Luca
So far this year, FAmSCo has held 17 meetings. Overall attendance has been:
  • 17 out of 17 -- Joerg, Susmit
  • 15 out of 17 -- David
  • 14 out of 17 -- Maria
  • 12 out of 17 -- Max
  • 11 out of 17 -- Luca
  • 10 out of 17 -- Luca

1.2. Regional Meetings

One of FAmSCo's goals this year is to make sure that at least one FAmSCo member is at each regional meeting that is held. As of the time this report was prepared, 6 regional meetings held in April had been logged.
  • NA -- 2 meeting, both attended by David and 1 attended by Max.
  • EMEA -- 2 meetings, 1 attended by Joerg.
  • APAC -- 2 meeting, no FAmSCo members in attendance.
  • LATAM -- 0 meeting

1.3. FAmSCo Mailing List

By an impulse from FAD-NA - work has started to make the "joining/mentoring Process" more a step-by-step expirience for the Candidates, therefore Ambassadors_Join_start has been set up. Lead is Clint Savage.
