Review of Action Items

Membership Model Proposal

Our last meeting was a great starting conversation.  Let's identify concrete next steps for the following questions:

  • How do we diversify our revenue streams?
  • What are the benefits that organizations get for membership?
  • What are the benefits that we get as part of our relationship with LYRASIS?
    • Clarify this with Laurie
  • What are some strategies that we can employ to rethink our business model?
    • Check in with potential consultants

Goal: Identify a method for moving forward long-term actions for improving Fedora's business model.


Next steps. Action items.
