The [[Ambassadors|  Fedora Ambassadors]]  provide a local voice and contact point for their local areas, and they organize Fedora's participation in events, both big and small.  Here are some of the things you'll have the opportunity to do as an Ambassador:
 
 
* Represent Fedora at a local event.
 
It does not have to be a Linux event. Think big, go to a music or media trade show and tell them how Fedora can help solve the problems they are facing.
 
* Speak at a [[FedoraEvents|  conference]]  near you.
 
* Support others as they participate in events, by providing them with the materials and information they need to get things done.
