On the subject of Tutorials, what about a generic tutorial about how
Foundation operates, as a non-profit. Some people might not understand the
governing role of the Foundation, the membership role (or lack, in
this case), et
cetera. As an idea, I suggest turning to the FAQ section of Idealist.org.
Examples such as: "What does the board do?"
Or: "Is the board paid?"
Or: "Who sees the meeting minutes?"
I'm thinking using these kind of FAQs with an eye for our organization
a "manual" to the Foundation, in a sense, explaining who does what and
are done the way they are. I look forward to suggestions.
