Following our Statutes, the association is obliged to have a steering committee.
Article 13 of our Statutes defines the tasks of the moderation committee:
The Steering Committee is responsible for the governance of the projects carried out by the association. It is composed of contributor members, elected in accordance with the procedures described in Article 16.
It is composed of at least 3 people and a maximum of 10 people.
The Steering Committee organizes the proper community functioning of the various projects managed by the Association.
It monitors the various tools put in place for and by the community, in which it participates to inform the decided policies, sets up the contribution protocols, and finally provides validation, signifying official acceptance of these contributions in the project.
It tries to take into account the opinions of the community, and to respect consensus, but keeps the last word in case of conflict over the direction of a project.
The results of its deliberations must be published to members and contributors.
In order to be able to use the association's resources, the Steering Committee draws up a budget, in consultation with the Board. This budget is made public. When budget resources are used to remunerate, directly or indirectly, a member of the Steering Committee, the Board must approve the budget in advance.
The regularity with which this budget is prepared is at the discretion of the Board and the Steering Committee.
If there are any questions, feel free to ask! If you want to apply for the Steering Committee, write a comment here (add some words about yourself if you want). Please note, you need to be member of the collective to stand for election. Visit our membership page to become a member!
