An assembly is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general assembly (which meets once a year to define the organisation's main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organisation), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of assemblies.
About this assembly
👥💼 Driving Mautic's Vision: The Council at the Helm of Operations, Budget, and Strategy 🚀🎯
Think of the Community Council as the guiding force for the Mautic project. They look after the money side of things, deciding on the budget and making sure everything financial is running as it should. They're also the ones managing the project's staff and contractors.
The Council keeps a close eye on how the project is doing overall, and they lead in figuring out how to make sure Mautic can keep growing. This includes working out plans for large-scale fundraising. They also drive the project's long-term strategy.
They're not just focused on money, either. The Council has responsibility for things like Mautic's trademarks and brand assets, and they're the ones who sign off on any contracts to do with the project. Other teams in the project can come up with policies and procedures they think are right, and the Council reviews, documents, communicates, and if everything checks out, adopts them.
They're committed to maintaining a respectful community for the project too, so they're in charge of ensuring any breaches of the Code of Conduct get dealt with properly.
Oh, and one more thing - remember that the Council isn't hiding away in some secret lair. They meet regularly to look over the project and its needs, and you can see their meeting notes and agendas because they're made public.
So in a nutshell, you might hear people talking about Community Council members or representatives. They're just referring to the folks who make up this council.
The Community Council shall initially have seven (7) representatives. Thereafter, the number of representatives is fixed until a change by a vote of the voting members at an annual meeting of members to another odd number of representatives greater than three (3). Any votes to change the number of representatives during a meeting of the members shall be deemed to take effect before the election of any individual representatives during the same meeting.
