New Apereo Membership Category Proposed
The Apereo Foundation Board proposes to introduce a new category of Foundation membership – individual membership, or 'Friends of Apereo'. The core Friends of Apereo offering is designed to maintain the primary focus of the Foundation in supporting educational institutions serve the their mission, whilst providing additional funding to maintain and extend recognition, award and mentoring programs.
Friends of Apereo will enable increased levels of engagement by those who do not or no longer work in education, but who wish to see open source in education succeed. The Board solicits community opinion on this issue, prior to conducting any work to adapt the Foundation by-laws to this purpose. Feel free to contact me directly with your perspectives on this proposal.
