Hi folks - sorry, rather short notice but I have to go and get some plumbing supplies before the shops close at 2000 - if I’m quick I could be back by 1915 GMT but I imagine it may take until 2000. So please don’t wait for me to start, and I’ll try to join towards the end of the call.
This is about “how to spend the money” or "how to fund projects"
Someone proposes a project (like a book about OSCE)
The person gathers a team and tries to get funding from grants and donations. If the person can’t find enough money OSCEdays association helps.
If the project makes money. The income is shared between the project team and the OSCEdays association. It is about “support” for the team. Not really about “investment”. Different logic. It is just about making sure that the fix-costs of OSCEdays are covered.
-> This is project by project different. The key is that every project team should first try to get the money themselves.
This is about “products” or “services” given by the OSCEdays association to partners. When OSCEdays is a contractor.
We support local event partners. But we don’t get money from them.
The idea here is that we should try to get local ambassadors - Local people that are official OSCEdays ambassadors. And those will try to get more members to the association. And members pay a members fee. The members fee can become a good income source.
If we are really good one day the ambassadors can be paid.
Participants: Qing, Gien, Lars, Silvia, Nikusha
