I presented this as a workshop for CMX Global Connect on 28 April 2020: https://events.cmxhub.com/events/details/cmx-cmx-global-presents-cmx-global-connect/

The worksheet related to this talk is available here: https://bit.ly/membership-identity/

The examples I used in the workshop are from the WordPress community.
