How to join an Independent C.W.C?

The following guidelines explain how a member shall constitute Independent CWCs:

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

  1. For the nomination to be successful, at least two members - The nominee, and a single member of the specific Open Council body nominating the member to its linked CWC, shall participate in the community proposal for the proposal to be taken up by the specific Open Council body for a Council vote.

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: Open Council Committee 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 Committee'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: The member is officially appointed to the Independent CWC by the Foundation's Executive Council and further ratified by a jurisdiction-based Independent Board.
