Mozilla membership program – existing communities vs. new global one.

You can read part 1 and part 2.

What will be the relations between “new” members form a country with local communities.

For example:

“New” members from Bulgaria will be joining Mozilla membership program from Mozilla.org website. Where is the place of local community websites on that process?

Why:

I am worried because there can be separation between existing communities and the global community. After new program starts there will be 2 Bulgarian communities – the existing one – from our website and the new one – around Mozilla.org.

We have to think about how to manage that . For example to show information how to join your local community, etc.

What do you think? How you see the connection between this global community and your local one?
