RMCCN follows the sociocratic governance model. Sociocracy uses the term circles instead of committees to emphasize a circular flow of information and decision making. RMCCN is directed by three circles, Governing, Operating, and Advising.
Sociocracy is a people-centered approach to organizational governance that fosters equivalence, connection and effectiveness. Consent decision-making provides everyone in the group an equal opportunity to decide the policies governing their activities, while the circle-based organizational structure promotes accountability and two-way flow of power and information. The result is a dynamic, responsive organization that effectively achieves its aims. To learn more, visit www.sociocracy.info.
The governing circle is responsible for the over-all guidance of organization. It handles contracts, finances, personal, and legal matters in general. Its members are drawn from the Operating and Advising circles.
The operating circle is inward facing, handling day to day operations. It is responsible for planning and executing trainings, professional development, and the accreditation program.
The advising circle is outward facing, attending to how RMCCC can serve the public. It is responsible for community out-reach, fundraising, and ways to collaborate with other organizations that are alined with ?RMCCC/s purpose.
