When Craig Newmark of Craigslist predicted last October that NPR would be a “dominant force” in news in ten years because of its membership model, a lot of people were surprised. But behind the scenes at FDL, we had collectively come to the same conclusion after reading Jon Walker’s series on “Lessons From the Nonpartisan League.” For months now, we have all been working together to come up with a membership association program that will give our community members a way to increase their involvement with FDL as well as expand our ability to cover and impact public issues.
We’re going to be rolling out the program in the next few weeks, and offering people the opportunity to become founding members. And one of the things we want to be able to offer is an association membership card. But we need your help.
We’ve been working with designers to come up with logos that reflect the identity and values of the community, and we want to know what you think. What do you like? What speaks to you? What elements do you think communicate the vision of an active, vital membership organization?
