#MauticGA A Forum for Collaborative Decision-Making and Strategic Planning in the Mautic Community.
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
🗣️🌍 Shaping Mautic's Future: Open Discourse and Collaborative Decision Making 🚀🔮
The General Assembly forms the backbone of the democratic process within the Mautic community—a seminal congregation where all members come together to discuss, deliberate, and evolve the direction of the project. Acting as an amalgamation of diverse voices and conducive ideas, the Assembly provides a democratic platform for Mautic community members, regardless of their role, to constructively engage in discussions about Mautic's future.
The General Assembly's powers extend beyond merely being a discussion forum. It holds the mandate to undertake significant decisions that shape the trajectory of the Mautic project. The entity votes on and approves proposals, strategic directions, policies, and operational plans, ensuring communal consensus on all notable decisions.
The General Assembly's responsibilities demonstrate the community's dedication to an open source, collaborative, and transparent decision-making process. It reflects the democratic principle embedded in Mautic's DNA—granting an equal voice to each community member, and fostering a shared sense of ownership and responsibility towards steering Mautic's journey forward.
