FCL = Fedora Community Action and Impact Lead
Note that "→" in the chart above indicates that responsibility for that item feeds into a next step in responsibility; for example, regional treasurers are responsible for providing the FCL with the relevant information for their region, and the FCL is responsible for the general report to the community. Likewise, the Council is responsible for any top-level budget adjustment when the final budget comes in from our sponsor, and regions responsible to update accordingly if needed.
Regional Ambassadors will manage their own budgets, and report back quarterly on action and impact.
If a region does not submit a budget proposal within the timeline above, their budget will be allocated as general discretionary funds. Budgeted money not spent as planned may also be reallocated on a quarterly basis; if a region or budgeted subproject does not provide a quarterly update, budget for that region or subproject for future quarters may also be reallocated.

Each region will select three delegated roles:
The Regional Treasurer will be responsible for recording costs and disbursing funds. Cardholders don't necessarily have to serve this role, but it would reduce the number of hops between expense and report
The Logistician Delegate will be accountable for shipping swag, banners, and other physical items that need to be shared regionally, as well as any other coordinating for event staffing and organization. This includes convening weekly ambassador IRC meetings.
The Storytelling Delegate will be accountable for Regional Reports. They don't necessarily have to write all the original content, they just need to be accountable for ensuring content makes it out onto our channels.
One person may hold no more than (2) of these roles at the same time.
Holding with our current policies, reimbursement will depend on submission of an Event Report to the appropriate channels (mail lists, communityblog, and the planet/magazine when applicable)
Event reports going forward should also include a very short list of bullet points. These bullet points are the necessary ammunition we need to reinforce our proposals to increase funding for regional programs going forward.
Action is any typical or special activity that ambassadors lead regionally such as:
Impact includes the outcomes from the activities as above. This includes things like:
