RDA Ambassadors

02 Dec 2016

Dear colleagues,
You may be aware that the RDA Future Direction Plan includes an
Ambassador programme. The Council Engagement & Communication
Subcommittee is working on this topic, and I am in touch with its chair
Amy Nurnberger. Following an initial discussion during the last F2F
Synchronisation Assembly, I am trying to identify who in Europe acts as
RDA Ambassador towards her/his community. My initial aim is Ambassadors
towards scientific communities, but you may want to show up also if you
play this role for your own community in another stakeholder group, for
instance if you are a librarian.
Beyond this initial step to identify who plays this role, the objective
will be to exchange about the methods used, to identify what works and
what does not and possible gaps.
So please contact me if you think that you play this kind of role.
Best regards, and bon week-end
Francoise

    Hi Françoise,
    Isn't that all of us?
    Cheers, Jamie

    No, I don’t know what it might mean beyond the usual meaning.
    Please explain what responsibilities it might entail so we might be able to determine whether we are doing it or not.
    My activities have included making regular presentations (say every 3-6 months) to the WLCG Grid Deployment Board (sometimes also to the WLCG Overview Board) as well as less frequent written statements to the EIROForum IT WG.
    Maybe this is “usual stuff”.

    Hallo Jamie,
    yes and no – as you know :)
    Being “ambassador” means taking some responsibility I guess which is more than the usual stuff all of us do.
    my 2 cents
    best

    Dear Jamie,
    For the moment the point is to have an overview of the current
    landscape. I don't think that the regular presentations you describe are
    the 'regular stuff', and I am sure that you are very conscious of that.
    So may I include you in the list?
    Best
    Francoise
