We don’t currently have a membership scheme. Because we are open (which is a fundamental aspect of the party), anyone can contribute to the manifesto, anyone can join the conversation here, and anyone can see all our planning. There isn’t anything concrete that would change if you became a member.
However, maybe that doesn’t matter. Maybe instead of asking for mailing list signups, volunteers, and donations, we bite the membership bullet and go for it.
So, forgetting the how we would support membership (which we can talk about on https://trello.com/c/3d9kVdWP/16-membership-system), my question is:
What does membership of Something New mean to you?
What would you want? What would you expect? What would you pay?
