North American Ambassadors

Welcome to the North American Ambassadors page. We're working hard to make this page our central point for all NA Ambassadors. If you are interested in further participating in the Fedora project as an ambassador, we'd love to have you on board.

Currently, we're building a list of regional North American ambassadors. If you interested in helping us, feel free to add your name.

We also have a Ambassador Growth Plan (we call it the world domination plan) with quantifiable goals. Feel free to peruse this as well.

Meeting Times

North American ambassadors meet on, #fedora-meeting, every Tuesday at 9pm Eastern US time. See previous/upcoming Meetings.

Fedora Ambassador Polo Shirts for North America

Building on the successful and handsome polo shirts that Joerg Simon created[1], we have started procuring similar Fedora polos from Screen Printed Products[2], our preferred vendor in Ohio.

Here is a photo of the first batch of polos, below.


We are gathering names of Ambassadors in the United States and Canada for another batch order. The shirts are slightly cheaper now that we have paid the one-time design fees to the vendor. The shirts are $22.50 + shipping + 2% to cover PayPal fees, which should be around $40 each or two for $65 within the continental US (higher in Canada). Please send your shipping address to I will issue a PayPal payment invoice to your address and the shirt will be drop-shipped to you.
