    89 <h1 id="vision">Vision</h1>
    83 90 <p>Our mission is to support the creation and distribution of Open Source
    84 91 software at no charge under the Apache License, as per our Bylaws. To
    85 92 this end we provide project spaces and resources for like-minded
     
    119 126 Incubation is where communities are defined, so we put a strong
    120 127 emphasis on guidance during the incubation phase to preserve our core
    121 128 values as the Foundation grows.</p>
    122 <h3>Objectives</h3>
    129 <h2 id="objectives">Objectives</h2>
    123 130 <ol>
    124 131 <li>
    125 132 <p>Ensure that the services that the ASF offers to project communities
     
    143 150 and establish the foundation for long-term stability.</p>
    144 151 </li>
    145 152 </ol>
    146 <h3>ASF Services - Infrastructure</h3>
    153 <h2 id="asf-services-offered-to-our-communities">ASF Services Offered To Our Communities</h2>
    154 <p>The ASF offers a number of important services to our project communities.</p>
    155 <h3 id="asf-services-infrastructure">ASF Services - Infrastructure</h3>
    147 156 <p>The ASF currently provides infrastructure services to project
    148 157 communities including mailing list, website and scm hosting, issue
    149 158 trackers and a range of build and deployment tools. Many projects now
     
    186 195 consideration in our strategy for managing inflow into the Incubator.
    187 196 In other words, we do not intend to use Incubator inflow limitation as
    188 197 a strategy for infrastructure cost management.</p>
    189 <h3>ASF Services - Marketing, Publicity and Brand Management</h3>
    198 <h3 id="asf-services-marketing-publicity-and-brand-management">ASF Services - Marketing, Publicity and Brand Management</h3>
    190 199 <p>Services in this category are provided both at the foundation level
    191 200 and to individual projects. To date, our focus has been primarily on
    192 201 effectively responding to queries and press events, managing our ASF
     
    211 220 in ASF marketing and communications. Both of these items will also
    212 221 require more focus from the Board and the ASF membership on developing
    213 222 our outreach, selection and mentoring practices.</p>
    214 <h3>ASF Services - Conferences and Community Development</h3>
    223 <h3 id="asf-services-conferences-and-community-development">ASF Services - Conferences and Community Development</h3>
    215 224 <p>The ASF has traditionally held annual conferences, often on multiple
    216 225 continents. We believe that these conferences contribute to our
    217 226 mission in (at least) two ways. First, they provide a venue for ASF
     
    241 250 agree on an annual budget to cover project-specific community
    242 251 development initiatives. That budget will be administered by the
    243 252 Community Development PMC.</p>
    244 <h3>ASF Services - Legal</h3>
    253 <h3 id="asf-services-legal">ASF Services - Legal</h3>
    245 254 <p>The ASF is fortunate to have pro bono legal counsel available that
    246 255 meets most of our legal advice and representation needs. The
    247 256 exception to this is trademarks-related costs, which we are no longer
    248 257 able to acquire as a pro bono service. We need, therefore, to develop
    249 258 a strategy and budget for this expense.</p>
    250 <h3>ASF Processes - PMC lifecycle</h3>
    259 <h2 id="asf-processes-we-use_1">ASF Processes We Use</h2>
    260 <p>To fulfill our mission of producing software for the public good, we
    261 document and promote certain processes for our projects building software.</p>
    262 <h3 id="asf-processes-pmc-lifecycle">ASF Processes - PMC lifecycle</h3>
    251 263 <p>We believe that the processes for onboarding new communities via the
    252 264 Incubator (or direct to TLP) channels are fit for purpose and can
    253 265 continue to scale. We also believe that the core oversight processes
     
    289 301 three years. We do not expect the percentage of initial inquiries
    290 302 that lead to entering podlings to decrease, but we hope to improve the
    291 303 effectiveness of the outreach, intake and incubation processes. In
    292 other words, our aim is not to be "Ĺ“more rigorous" in allowing
    304 other words, our aim is not to be "&oelig;more rigorous" in allowing
    293 305 podlings into the Incubator, but rather to get a more-likely-to-
    294 306 succeed mix entering the funnel and improving mentoring and access to
    295 307 resources for podlings. We do not intend to artificially throttle the
     
    299 311 believe that investments in planned and structured marketing to help
    300 312 attract good prospective communities is important and our intention is
    301 313 to make these investments.</p>
    302 <h3>ASF Processes - Governance</h3>
    314 <h3 id="asf-processes-governance">ASF Processes - Governance</h3>
    303 315 <p>As the ASF scales, our flat, direct-oversight governance model will
    304 316 continue to face challenges. Over the next 5 years, we expect to need
    305 317 to make some changes in how governance works, but our goal is to, as
     
    357 369 <p>To promote healthy inflow of new ideas and connection with project
    358 370 communities, we will also explore means to ensure that more members
    359 371 have the opportunity to serve in Director and Officer roles.</p>
    360 <h3>ASF Budget and Finance - Finance operations</h3>
    372 <h2 id="asf-budget-and-finance_1">ASF Budget and Finance</h2>
    373 <p>As a non-profit entity that relies on donations, we have plans and
    374 goals to responsibly manage our funds.</p>
    375 <h3 id="asf-budget-and-finance-finance-operations">ASF Budget and Finance - Finance operations</h3>
    361 376 <p>The ASF has effectively outsourced core financial operations to an
    362 377 organization management firm. This has been a key element in our
    363 378 ability to manage our growth and improve the quality and comprehension
     
    367 382 oversight role that is being effectively managed by volunteers
    368 383 (Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer). We do not anticipate the need to
    369 384 change this arrangement over the next five years.</p>
    370 <h3>ASF Budget and Finance - Financial Analysis and Planning</h3>
    385 <h3 id="asf-budget-and-finance-financial-analysis-and-planning">ASF Budget and Finance - Financial Analysis and Planning</h3>
    371 386 <p>The rigor and regularity of ASF financial planning and analysis
    372 387 activities is improving and over the next 5 years, we expect to evolve
    373 388 a set of leading and durable practices. Currently, we have annual
     
    388 403 a quarterly financial review, which will extend and deepen the
    389 404 analysis included in monthly Treasurer's reports. This review will be
    390 405 open to the membership and executed asynchronously.</p>
    391 <h3>ASF Budget and Finance - Fundraising</h3>
    406 <h3 id="asf-budget-and-finance-fundraising">ASF Budget and Finance - Fundraising</h3>
    392 407 <p>The financial plan presented below shows an increase from the 2017
    393 408 expense budget of $1.2MM to $2.3MM in 2023. This presents a big
    394 409 challenge for ASF fundraising. At the same time, the role, VP
     
    446 461 will increase the frequency contacts with existing and prospective
    447 462 individual donors, leveraging our marketing, fundraising and finance
    448 463 operations partners to plan and execute campaigns.</p>
    449 <h3>ASF Budget and Finance - External Partnerships</h3>
    464 <h3 id="asf-budget-and-finance-external-partnerships">ASF Budget and Finance - External Partnerships</h3>
    450 465 <p>We considered a proposal in 2017 to form a revenue-generating joint
    451 466 venture, managed via a separate legal entity. The proposal was to
    452 467 partner with a commercial company to produce ASF-certified training
     
    465 480 that contribute to our mission over the next five years. The current
    466 481 5-year financial plan does not include any revenue projections from
    467 482 these activities.</p>
    468 <h3>ASF Budget and Finance - 5-year Financial Plan</h3>
    483 <h3 id="asf-budget-and-finance-5-year-financial-plan">ASF Budget and Finance - 5-year Financial Plan</h3>
    469 484 <p>Details (with updated numbers) of the 5-year financial plan are
    470 485 presented below. In aggregate, we expect expenses to grow from
    471 486 $1.42MM in FY 2018 to $2.2MM in FY 2023. Income is projected to grow
