4 Pls. Add
Stasia asked that we consider more personalized newsletters and communications to keep our community more engaged throughout the year.
We started talking about new ways to fund OSCE:
1. Ask 2017 participating cities for a small participation fee to offset at minimum our IT costs (hardware and labor)
2. Open up an OSCE online store or find another way to sell products/services made during OSCEdays and thorugh our projects (Lars will explore solutions)
