 +# Talking points for workshop discussion
 +
 +[Back to RSA networks and engagement](netengage)
 +
 +The ideas below were developed in May 2012, since when the idea of
 +relaunching OpenRSA has been put on hold. On reflection, and from a wide
 +range of conversations,​ it may be more productive to focus development
 +of an innovation space to pilot ideas for the RSA we would like to see.
 +The next RSA. David Wilcox
 +
 +The [OpenRSA exploration](exploration) will start with some talking
 +points aimed to frame discussion and lead up to [workshops in autumn 2012](workshops).  ​
 +The key issue we are inviting people to engage with is:
 +
 +How can RSA Fellows contribute to the organisation’s mission - and benefit from the
 +experience in ways that suit their needs as well?
 +
 +That can be re-framed on a personal basis as:
 +
 +How can being a Fellow of the RSA help me achieve more for myself and others?  ​
 +What changes would offer greater benefits to me and then to others?
 +
 +### Provocations
 +
 +The following are some first suggestions for opening provocations and propositions,​ that can form the basis for talking points.  ​
 +More [on the exploration page](exploration) on how they fit into the overall process.
 +
 +#### Open up on what’s happening
 +
 +Fellows aren’t clear on what developments are currently planned.
 +
 +#### Clarify the terms of engagement, and expectations
 +
 +So that Fellows know what to expect from their fees, and the nature of Fellowship.
 +
 +#### Allow self-interest.
 +
 +Promote greater alignments between the RSA programme and Fellows interests in learning, networking and their careers.
 +
 +#### Encourage enterprise.
 +
 +The social entrepreneurs network encourages social enterprises to promote their activities.  ​
 +Allow businesses and freelances with social objectives to do the same.
 +
 +#### Bring in business.
 +
 +Encourage Fellows with commercial expertise and contacts to bring that to bear in supporting the RSA’s mission.
 +
 +#### Think creative, collaborative and connected.
 +
 +Fellowship council is well established to provide representation of Fellows interests.  ​
 +We need to strengthen ways in which Fellows can collaborate among themselves.
 +
 +#### Encourage Fellows to develop their own services.
 +
 +The terms under which Fellows make a donation limits the range of services RSA can provide.  ​
 +Maybe Fellows can can do more for each other.
 +
 +#### Enable outside collaborations
 +
 +Between Fellow-led initiatives and others outside the organisation,​ as well as staff-led projects.
 +
 +#### Enable Fellows to meet more easily.
 +
 +If that isn’t possible on RSA premises, explore other opportunities.
 +
 +#### Develop online spaces and services
 +
 +To meet this more open agenda through co-design between staff and Fellows, or encouraging Fellow-led initiatives.
 +
 +#### Favour the network, not the centre.
 +
 +Aim to make it as easy to engage outside London as in.
 +
 +#### Some previous discussion
