How can I join an Independent C.W.C (Core Working Committee)?

The following guidelines explain how a member shall get appointed to an Independent CWCs:

Step 1: Nomination: A member of the Open Council shall generally nominate a community proposal on behalf of another member of the community.

For the nomination to be successful and for the proposal to be taken up by the specific Open Council body for a Council vote:

At least two members shall participate in the community proposal -

Nominee, and

A member of the specific Open Council body, nominating the Nominee to the Council body’s C.W.C.

To build community consensus, a nominated candidate should work with the guidance of the member, nominating the candidate and publishing a public-facing report to support their nomination.

Step 2: Council Vote: Open Council members vote on the nomination for appointment.

Appointment is conditional to a quorum, which is achieved with the participation of more than half of the specific Council body's members and a majority in favour of the nomination.

The Open Council body members shall generally schedule an interview and document the interview for the public-facing records of all CWC nominations.

Step 3: Appointment: The Foundation's Executive Council officially appoints members to the Independent CWC, which is further ratified by a jurisdiction-based Independent Board.
