Drummond,

This is surely important to start working our way through.  It does seem to me that we will benefit from working together in the most collaborative and global way possible.  In all of my experience, the simpler the global membership model the better for everyone.  My three most salient earlier organizational experiences with ICANN, XDI.org, and CIX stand in stark contrast because of distinctions in complexity.

cheers,

Snorri,
 

  
 

I am not a full member of the Membership
Committee (I help out when I can), but I want to say that I agree that with the
OpenID Foundation now being up to full member status, I think it’s a good
time to develop an agreement between OIDF and OIDE.
 

  
 

Bill, is this something you and the rest
of the Membership Committee can take on?

Dear,
 

  
 

You
finalize the OIDF Member Agreement and congratulation you,
 

  
 

The
opportunity to inform you of operation in Europe:
 

  
 

I
know now the effectiveness of “OpenID local chapter” (For large
countries who do not speak English)
 

For
example in France, “OpenID France” (Christophe Ducamp ) was created
=> www.openid.asso.fr  => NPO of French law.
 

  
 

OpenID
France already has received several Members Agreement (French MA = easier than
OIDF = only 1/2 pages) and is directly related to “OpenID Europe”
(OIDE) => NPO of Belgium law.
 

  
 

The
experiment will continue soon in other EU Countries but the France is a model.
 

  
 

The
goal is to simplify the differents initiatives depending on the EU country and
to have a single operating model 
 

Thus
OpenID Europe should become OIDF Member but off course his contribution will be
greater than that fixed by the
 

“Membership
Application” (NPO)
 

  
 

To
resume, in general, I think that it is important now to think now and sign a
document between OIDF and OIDE about our mission statement. 
 

  
 

What
do you think?
 

  
 

I’m
at your disposal to give more information
 

  
 

Cheers
 

  
 

-Snorri
