attachment:IconsPage/important.png [ Plan Of Action for Building Communities] - PLEASE stop by and look at this action plan, as it pertains to all of us.


The purpose of this page is to act as a resource for US based Local Community Teams. It will act as a central place to offer publications, resources, frequently asked questions and more.

Currently different states have had better success at getting up and running than other teams. This is most likely due to poor communication and lack of resources or know-how. We hope that with the cooperation of successful teams and struggling teams everyone can become stronger. A strong team in every US state is the goal of this project for 2007.

If you would like to help with this project and help mentor new teams please add your name and contact information to the /MentorList. If you need advice or help in creating a team in your area please see the resources below. Please be sure that a team does not already exist in your area. To see if an Ubuntu Local Community Team exists for you state, please look at the [:/TeamList:US Teams List].

How You Can Contribute

Anyone can contribute to this project. Most help is needed in closely mentoring upcoming teams. Other resources to contribute would be answering frequently asked questions, suggestions on recruitment and leadership attributes.

Current Project Goals

Current goals for this project are as follows:

  • Official Ubuntu LoCo teams in each state by 2008.

  • Improved communication between US based teams.
  • A "mentoring" program for improved and pain-free application process.
