PSF Sponsorship Bundle Working Group Charter
Purpose & Common Goals
The initial purpose of this workgroup is to pick up where we left off for the International Sponsorship Bundle that we created in early 2015. We want to make it easy for companies like Red Hat and Bank of America to provide "minimal strings attached" funding globally. Sponsors would only engage more directly when they happen to have a local team interested in driving that engagement directly with the conference organizers.
This workgroup will be active indefinitely.
Core Values & Internal Governance
The core values for this group are:
- Positive Atmosphere
The workgroup adopts the PSF Code of Conduct (https://www.python.org/psf/codeofconduct/). Any actions (found by a majority) made against the principles in the Code of Conduct will result in the acting person being removed from the workgroup.
Rules & Guidelines
The initial guideline for this workgroup is for BetsyWaliszewski to re-create a sponsorship bundle prospectus that includes reasons for all changes/suggestions.
- This new proposal will be discussed on the mailing list.
- The final draft will be decided by the entire workgroup based on majority rule.
- After a final prospectus is in place, the WG will launch the sponsorship options via email.
