Guidelines for observers for the SGWG meetings:

  • We welcome observers, and plan to set aside time  at the end of each of these calls for comments -- 5 minutes in a 60 minute meeting or 10 minutes in a 90 minute meeting. (Plus, the line will remain open after the end of the call for anyone who wants to stay after and dialogue with each other)

We welcome you to join us!

Topic Area Description

From the Explanation of Topic Areas, the topic area that this Working Group is invited to address is:

Group 2:  Structure and Governance

  • How will the organization or network be structured, and how will it be governed?
  • If the organization is geographically distributed, how will pieces be related?
  • How might organizations affiliate?
  • How will the leadership of the organization be decided, and how will major decisions be made?
  • What other systems need to be specified in relation to governance?
  • Example outcomes:
    • There will be a CNVC branch office on each continent,
    • local NVC organizations can enter an agreement to be “local affiliates” of CNVC if they meet certain criteria.
    • Branch offices will make independent decisions except with regard to certain issues where the CNVC governing council makes decisions.
    • CNVC will governed by a council that will be elected via a Sociocratic process that starts with local affiliate organizations.
  • Note: This working group may need to produce more actionable decisions than others, so there is enough specificity to allow a new governance system to be put into effect quickly.
