The AV Guild will be responsible for the management of the BanklessDAO YouTube channel (including quality control, uploads, and RSS data entry, etc) and will provide AV services (upon request, and according to a menu of rates) to other groups or members within the DAO.
The focus for Season 8 is talent development and retention.
The AV Guild faced a decline in membership and participation before Season 6, with little new talent joining since and a marked drop in demand for talent due to changes in funding and project structures. In response, the guild suspended two salaried roles during Season 6, focused on YouTube operations and recording services for other groups, and explored ways to conserve and optimize its BANK budget. To foster growth and development, the guild placed an emphasis on talent development and planned to reintroduce training classes in Season 7.
Season 7 Activities
Requests for services so far in Season 7 have been below expectations, but we have not had a request we could not cover. The Guild has committed to talent scouting, upskilling, and retention with an onboarding project in the second half of Season 7. Details are still in the works, but the goals are to bring new talent in and provide a mentoring and collaborative environment where participants can learn how to start their own AudioVisual projects or shows.
MISSION & VALUE ALIGNMENT
The AV Guild manages and curates the BanklessDAO YouTube. With well-updated, quality-produced content, we can reach more people with resources to help them go bankless.
The AV Guild can also be accessed for meeting recording, streaming, and other services. In this way, we can support efforts toward documentation, transparency, archival, and education.
If members are interested in developing their AV skills, training classes are offered to upskill and retain talent.

Revenue Generation Model
The AV Guild began a revenue generation structure directed toward achieving self-sufficiency. A markup is added to the cost of labor when subgroups quote prices for AV services. The service fee, retained by the Guild, is used to cover future overhead expenses. By approaching revenue in this way, we can ensure that the Guild and its services are available for all DAO subgroups when needed, but also be better able to scale our expenses up or down with the actual demand for services.
Those looking to request AV services should visit the Notion page and fill out a request form. The menu of prices for services we offer is available there as well. Our basic meeting screen capture and recording service is only 1,250 BANK per hour of labor (up from 1,000 BANK per hour, due to the service fee). Groups may also choose to record audio-only themselves, for free, using our resident Craig bot. Instructions for how to use Craig are also available on our Notion page.
