Strategic refresh at recent staff retreat we discussed several significant ideas of interest to our members:
- Mapping and understanding the scholarly ecosystem
- Commonalities and repeatability to provide members with more and better access to events including user group meetings, training opportunities, and web seminars across projects
- How to provide DevOps (development and operations) expertise and provisioning of resources at scale in collaboration with our community
- Strategic partner criteria and creating additional membership value
