What Is a Country Ambassador?
A country ambassador has two main roles:
- To act as a central point of contact for people wanting information specific to their particular country. Each ambassador is responsible for managing all e-mails that are sent to their country-specific address.
- To manage the country-specific content on this site, namely the blogs listed for their country in the FI Blogs section. This involves searching for new blogs to add to the list, adding blogs suggested by other users, and removing blogs that are no longer relevant or have become inactive.
What Requirements Do I Need to Meet to Become a Country Ambassador?
There are only two requirements you need to meet to become a country ambassador:
- You must be enthusiastic about the project and about helping FIRE enthusiasts find each other and building up the European FIRE community.
- You must be fluent in at least one of the official languages of the country in question. This is essential so that you can communicate easily with people from that country in their own language – speaking fluent English shouldn’t be a prerequisite to being part of this community!
Note that you don’t need to be a blogger to be a country ambassador. As long as you meet the requirements above we’ll consider you for the job.
How Much Work Is Involved?
This largely depends on the size of the country an ambassador represents and on how active its FIRE community is. Being a country ambassador for a big country like Germany with a very active FIRE community could involve quite a bit of work. Countries like that can have more than one ambassador. On the other hand, representing a small country where the concept of FIRE is practically unknown will be less time-consuming. Unless of course the country ambassador takes it upon themselves to bring FIRE to the country!
What About Privacy?
We do not publish the full names or e-mail addresses of country ambassadors on this site. We list first names only, and provide each country ambassador with their own FIREhub.eu e-mail address: <country>[at]firehub[dot]eu.
