Can museum membership programs be managed like a co-op? While we don’t have profits to share, I’m interested in discussing whether a co-op format would make members feel like they have more invested in the success of the museum. I’m also hoping to do away with the complicated tiered memberships that are based entirely on what members receive and replace it with something else – like if you volunteer “X” number of hours, you receive a free membership.
I have no experience implementing a museum membership co-op but am interested in developing a prototype to test. If you have ideas to share, please attend this discussion session.
