I'm attaching a message from Steve at LEGO. I definitely think we should try to get a new Ambassador in. Under the old rules, I would have reached my term limit. They've dropped the term limits, but I don't think I'll have time for the Ambassador program in a few months.
I'd like to recommend Ley Ward as our nominee.
I’m pleased to announce the LEGO Ambassador Program has an open window for enrollment starting today. Please read below for the full scoop.
LEGO Ambassador Program Four Week Open Enrollment
LEGO Community Engagement and Communications Team would like to announce that we’re kicking of a four week open enrollment period for the LEGO Ambassador Program. We have set forth some basic qualifications (details below) and every aspect of the AFOL Community that meets those qualifications will have an opportunity to send a representative to the LEGO Ambassador Program.
At this time we’re giving All LEGO User Groups, which includes online and offline AFOL communities,) an opportunity to do one of the following:
1 - LUGs who currently have a representative to document their qualifications in order to remain in the program.
2 - All LUGs who are not currently participating in the LEGO Ambassador Program need to send in a document showing they are qualified to participate in the program and choose a representative.
3 - LUGs already participating in the program will have the opportunity to let us know if they want to switch their current representative with another member of their LUG.
The open enrollment period will take place between October 18th and November 18th. Please work together as a LUG (LEGO User Group both online and offline) to build an application for the program and select a representative. Once the LEGO Community Engagement and Communications team receives your application (please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
- North America, email@example.com
) we will process them and let you know whether or not your meet the qualifications.
Part of your application will be to choose a representative from your LUG to act as your Ambassador to the LEGO Group. You will need to determine this process as a LUG for choosing your representative.
Once the one month period is up the LEGO Community Engagement and Communications Team will invite your Ambassadors into the LEGO Ambassador Forum. Your LUG will remain part of the program as long as you continue to meet the qualifications. If your LUG is not ready to meet the qualifications during this open enrollment period there will be another enrollment period every six months.
We look forward to hearing from you. Below is the outline of the program with all the details. If you have any questions on the selection process please ask Steve Witt (firstname.lastname@example.org
) or Jan Beyer (email@example.com
