####Summary####
Suggestion: Change the structure of FOSSNSBM to the “Council Structure” of Mozilla

  • Getting a feedback from the volunteers about the current structure of FOSSNSBM
  • Is the position of Club Captain necessary?
  • Get the idea about the new structure of FOSSNSBM through the structure of the Open initiative Satriaana

Suggestions by volunteers

Suggestion 1: We need someone to take leadership and depend on

Suggestion 2: We should distribute the responsibilities among everyone for productivity

Decisions taken

  • Instead of a single Club captain, a board of council members will be taking decisions as a team

  • So the workload will be divided between a number of people without assigning a single person with all the responsibilities

  • Current Core will be the Council

  • Send a form to the core members(Active core members form)

  • Council members will be divided into 2 groups taking into consideration how the core members fil the said form

  • The two groups:- Active members and Inactive members

  • Active members will have the power of voting

  • Inactive members only have the power to give ideas

  • Flat hierarchy inside the council

  • Work together

  • Everyone in the council will have the same responsibility level

  • Has the power to take decisions inside FOSSNSBM

  • The decision will be confirmed through votes from council members

  • No excuse?

  • When recruiting new council members, they will go through a probation period

  • Make the new structure of FOSSNSBM taking into consideration the ideas given by Satriaana

  • Make the structure first, and do the Documentation

  • Make it within a week’s time

  • CreateTrust levels

  • Some active members have trust level

  • Maintain transparency

First call

  • Date:- 09/10/2020

  • Time:- 8.00 p.m.

  • Make the new structure of FOSSNSBM at this call(Taking into consideration the structure of Satriaana)

  • Volunteers should be present

  • Everyone will have the power to vote there - until the structure is made

  • Volunteers will have the power to vote in the calls they are present at when taking community decisions

Organizing calls

  • Share an Etherpad link before meeting in order to add the name of the volunteers who are hoping to join the meeting
  • Make a list of things that are planned to be discussed at the meeting

All suggestions are welcome
