    • 3. Mission statement & objectives
      • Be recognised as the community (club) of European corporations(*) of all sizes involved in all kinds of social media initiatives, including corporate blogs and the use of social networks
      • Enable European social media experts to meet with their peers from all other European corporations, in their own country and across borders
      • Become the reference for social media in Europe as to best practices and methods, via the publication of a reference guide book for European professionals interested in leveraging social media (online & offline)
      • (*) by corporations, we mean any company having invested in social media, irrespective of company and revenue size
    • 4. An internet of people
      • A European organisation with regional chapters
      • Each country chapter would start locally with its own budget / organisation / subdomain (one per chapter)
      • Each country chapter would have to meet minimal requirements
        • a blog based website (on that subdomain), linked to other chapters
        • a European board with 3 project leaders (to start with)
        • similarly, a board for each chapter with 4-5 project leaders each (events, content, "cooptation“,etc.)
    • 5. Guiding principles
      • all content produced by the community/club must be made available to anyone, free of charge (or almost) on the Internet (and via libraries and online sales as to the paper copies)
      • membership through cooptation
      • agencies/vendors allowed but none can be co-opted by any of their clients, or another agency/vendor (unless it’s part of the same group)
      • agencies/vendors are on the contrary welcome and encouraged to bring on their clients
      • daughter/sister companies are automatically allowed to join the club, be they clients or agencies
      • agencies/vendors are welcome but not allowed to pitch to the members. Failure to comply will lead to the agency/vendor exclusion
      • minimal subscription fee as a token, has to be a small figure, but openly displayed on the website as well as where the money is going
        • ballpark figure for this fee approx.
        • € 150 per company per annum and discounted €100 rate per extra member (of the same group)
    • 6. Roadmap
      • setup final rules/guidelines no later than end of March,
      • having websites/blogs up no later than end of April,
      • having at least 20 to 30 confirmed members by end of April,
      • launch date September
    • 7. other items
      • each chapter free to choose their own language(s) or English
      • chapter members free to attend meetings from other chapters at their convenience
