Meeting moderated by John Vilsack (vilsack /\ gmail c0m)

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who is willing to dedicate themselves to furthering the awareness of Ubuntu Linux. Even if you can't attend, you can still commit to the group by signing up below!

What is the Ubuntu Community Marketing Team?

The Community Marketing Team is a part of the community that focuses on developing materials and projects that are used throughout the Ubuntu Community.

How is this different than the LoCos?

The LoCos largely focus on their individual geographical locations and the community of Ubuntu Linux users at-large. The Ubuntu Community Marketing Team's primary focus is making people aware of Ubuntu Linux and getting them to understand how and why we are different, and why those differences are worth checking out.

Why a Reorganization?

The Ubuntu Community Marketing Team has been quiet for the past few years. Some projects, like the SpreadUbuntu project, have seen some success but new people join every day and are unsure what they need to do to help contribute.

The reorganization is meant to help re-align our efforts so that people can join up, and know exactly where and what they can help with!

What's the Agenda?

In the time between this message being sent and the meeting, we're going to create two enrollment forms that will allow people to volunteer to "do something" for the Ubuntu Community Marketing Team. The second list is going to be open to anyone who is willing to step up and help lead the charge. This means you will develop ideas, recruit teams, and report back to the group as a whole about progress while keeping your project on track.

We want everyone who wants to help! You choose your level of involvement!

ACK! I can't make the meeting!

It's ok! We'll still have plenty to do, and you can still join the activists or the Core team by signing up! We'll be sure to keep everything open and transparent so everyone can stay informed!

We hope to see you all there, and we hope you'll join us in making Ubuntu even better!
