Independent CWC membership is a democratically elected position in the Foundation's Open Council.
Independent CWC appointment is a voluntary membership and invites an active contribution in the Foundation's Legal, Regulations, Media, and Executive Council activities to support Foundation's objectives.
The approval of a member's nomination and subsequent appointment is made by an appropriate Open Council body, and further ratified by the Independent Board.
All nominations and appointments are made in good faith.
CWC appointments are conditional to member registering their information to the Foundation's data registry for records and diligence purposes.
CWC appointments are made for a period of at least 1 to at most 3 years.
Members can voluntarily resign or can be democratically removed from the appointment, based on an Open Council Resolution.
The Council resolution for Removal is further voted by the community referendum to remove a member from a CWC.
