The Ambassador Fund for Southwest Fox is progressing on a couple of fronts. The first part is the donations are continuing to arrive. We currently have US$2371 in the bank and another US$625 pledged. This is an amazing number and shows the generosity of the community.

Last week we also invited a few people in the Fox Community to serve on a committee that will define the process for selecting the Ambassador(s) brought to the conference in 2009. This group of people will be announced once we get confirmation from everyone.

I am not sure exactly how much time it is going to take to define the selection process. We all have full-time jobs and this is a voluntary position. We expect to start out by brainstorming ideas, figure out what makes sense, and then publish the process. We will be blogging the progress of the fund, and naturally the selection process. Projecting out, I think it would be terrific if we have the process decided near the end of January. This would give us a few months to implement the process before registrations start in May for the conference.
