Hi Friedrich,

Can't the board hire someone who's job would be to develop TDF's sponsoring
channels ?

If we lack people/money to hire for "office" tasks, then maybe we should
think about having someone to "develop" our revenues ? In terms of
sponsorship I suppose since we are a foundation and not a company.

Some sort of salesperson but who's job would be to find contracts with
potential partners, not clients.

A thing of note is ยง8 - the board intends to hire or contract
someone to operate infrastructure on a daily basis, acknowledging
the extraordinary importance TDF's virtual presence has for our
collective needs.

I've some thoughts to throw in.

This touches several topics which I will handle within several mails:
- Budget - assignment and coverage

I read the last budget report

How much money would a hired officer cost?
How much money would remain for travel refund for community members
visiting the conference. We from admin team had several meetings, which
fosters the collaboration spirit quite well :o)).

I note a heavy domination of paid tech people within our community.
There is a huge lack of people in the non technical part of the
community work. If we ever pay people, we should consider doing so for
work in any of the non tech areas.
