ReMo is the code name for the Mozilla Representatives Program, a program that aims to empower and support volunteer Mozillians who want to be “official” Mozilla representatives in their region/locale.
ReMo will provide a simple and structured framework to inform, assist and support Mozilla volunteers who want to become official representatives of Mozilla in their region. They will be known as Mozilla Reps (or MozReps).
A Mozilla Rep will have the following responsibilities:
- represent Mozilla in their country/region
- promote the Mozilla Project and our mission
- build on and support existing/future local community efforts and programs
- inspire, recruit and support new contributors
- mentor future Mozilla Reps
- document clearly all their activities
Here are some things ReMo specifically aims NOT to do :
- replace or undermine efforts by existing communities of Mozilla volunteers around the world to recruit new contributors
- become a top-down ambassador program run exclusively by Mozilla staff
Characteristics of the ReMo program
- open to EVERYONE but rigorous membership process
- community-driven (once ReMo has reached mature stage)
- vertical distribution of responsibilities
- structured and well documented
- regular monitoring/assessment of activity
Who can be a Mozilla Rep?
Anyone who is:
- passionate about the Mozilla Project
- knowledgeable of the Mozilla organization, its mission, its products and its community
- willing to communicate to as many people as possible and keen to inspire people to contribute to Mozilla
ReMo will be based on specific infrastructure and a dynamic website.
More info on thinking and planning behing the website can be found on the Website planning page

Documenting the project, sharing it and gathering as much feedback as possible is critical to the successful design and implementation of ReMo. Tools and resources that will help to communicate ReMo to Mozillians and the public in general can be found on our Outreach page.
In order to communicate throughout the planning and deploying stage of ReMo, we have created several communication channels:
