Good points, Simon, and good question, Fred.

Following organisations come to my mind besindes WMF:
* Geonames: It's tech space I now, but interesting enough they
introduced "ambassadors".
* Google - with "Local Guides", similar to ambassadors but less
exclusive and more addicting, low-barrier (still tech space, sorry).
* Sports - as suggested by Simon - especially football/soccer fan
clubs with volunteers and fans helping out to organize events (and
prevent hooligans)...
