Assemblies

  • What is an Assembly?
    • An Assembly, or de jure Assembly, is an association and assemblage of people of like  mind who are dedicated to restoring wellbeing in all its forms.
    • Anyone who is a resident of a Nation, State, Province, City or Township is a member of  their Greater Assembly.
    • Any ratified Assembly is the governance body for the Greater Assembly. This is NOT a  representative government, but rather a Service Organization for the People.
    • The de jure Assembly is the Working Body of the Greater Assembly (residents of the  State).
    • The de jure Assembly identifies concerns, problems and develops solutions for the  community to assess and approve. This includes legislation.
    • De jure Assemblies enacts the legislation that is voted on and approved by the People. o Assemblies are made up of Committees that are responsible for the administration of  specific areas of concern (e.g., Education, Infrastructure, – see below) 
    • The de jure Assembly may choose a Hierarchical Model or a Council Model for their  organizational governance. 
      • A Hierarchical model consists of a President, Vice President, Secretary,  Treasurer, and Committee Heads. In the Hierarchical Model, the President who  resides at the top of the organization, retains the authority for final decisions.
      • A Council model consists of a collaborative Council with a Presiding Officer, Acting Secretary, Acting Treasurer and Committee Heads who arrive at  consensus on decisions.
    • The difference is that the Council Members have a shared responsibility of  decision making. The Council model involves discovering requirements and developing solutions through the collaborative effort of self-organizing and  cross-functional teams and their customer(s)/end user(s). It advocates adaptive  planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, and continual improvement, and it encourages flexible responses to change. It surfaces the needs, issues and problems and prioritizes them into functional teams for further processing. The Implementation teams (Project Committees) are the boots on the ground, close to the issue, more aware of the nature of the needs,  issues, etc. and best able to form actual solutions.
      • The President’s Executive Team or Council govern the entire de jure Assembly. o The President’s Executive Team or Councils are the administrative component of  Committees.
      • Committees are the administrative components of Restoration Teams.
      • The transition period for Assemblies requires that legislation be enacted in order to  create a stable structure on which to build self-governance. The outcomes of this  legislation can only be for the restoration of the Peoples’ Rights.
    • How do Assemblies differ from Councils?
      • Councils are a component of Assemblies, but only if the Assembly chooses a Council  model for its organizational governance.
      • The Council governs the entire de jure Assembly.
      • Councils are the administrative component of Committees.

    Councils

    • What is a Council?
      • A Council is a model of governance for a de jure Assembly. It differs from the  Hierarchical model of governance in that Councils arrive at decisions by consensus as  opposed to an individual (President) holding the ultimate authority for decisions.
      • Within a Council Model, a Council is the governance component of the Committees. o Committees are the working component with areas of responsibility.
