Next steps

GENERAL: Will start hosting on-boarding sessions for new entries to the DAO every two weeks, while continuing to develop educational materials to improve the DAO’s onboarding experience. Additionally we will oversee implementation of the ongoing Community Pulse survey and prepare a industry standard baseline assessment on community perceptions, to be used as a point of reference for forthcoming midline and end-line assessments that assess change in community perceptions, if any, over time.

OPS: Will continue to focus on working group facilitation, maintaining the Legislative Tracker, populating and improving the “Facilitation Corner” workspace with new content, facilitating the 2nd RFI round, improving DAO-Foundation synergy and transparency by enhancing different communication instances. As well as continuing to explore and guide discussions towards finding a comprehensive approach to balance participation, incentives and VP distribution.

COMMS: Maintain focus on sharing community, grantee, core squad and general DAO updates across our Socials. Continue collaborating with the foundation to improve coordination and cross promotion. For the next month will prioritize on getting even more micro content and post more education focused threads out there across our socials. Main focus will continue to be posting content on twitter as well as build out the twitter spaces, In World Meet Up, Builders Club organized and lined up for the next month.
