Nationwide Project Organization. I have noticed that some LoCo's have been created and then virtually abandoned by their creators. People who are excited to do something to help the Ubuntu community join these LoCo's. They then place a post on the local forum and/or mailing list stating their enthusiasm. Without any kind of leadership or infrastructure, this post or Email goes unanswered and without any projects to participate in the person quickly loses interest and moves on. We need a framework or system in place that fills gaps left by inattentive LoCo leadership. The US Team could propose and help organize projects, say 3 or 4 a year, for the State LoCo's. The US Team would come up with the projects and providing some mentoring/guidance but the project's execution would be carried out by the State LoCos. Members at the state level could pick up these projects on their respective mailing lists and have something they can participate in if nothing is being organized locally. -- duanedesign 2009-01-07 05:21:52
Outreach and Coordination. Like Duane said above we need better organization while at the same time we need to ensure that LoCo's get the TLC they need in order to be successful. I think providing a Leadership Guide (From Leadership Team) and perhaps utilizing the Leadership Team to do some LoCo evangelizing would be a great step towards ensuring we are engaging new states and dormant states accordingly. -- bkerensa 2022-01-22 16:45:36
