Hi,

Let's have a look on Holacracy Constitution 2.3.2 and 2.3.3...

2.3.2 EXCLUSION FOR MULTI-FILLED ROLES
If multiple Partners are assigned to the same Defined Role in a Circle,
the Circle may enact a Policy that limits how many of them are Core
Circle Members as a result of that Role assignment. However, the Policy
must allow at least one of the Partners filling the Role to repr esent it as
a Core Circle Member, and must specify how that representative will be
determined.
In addition, any Partners representing the Role have the duty to consider
and process Tensions conveyed by the excluded Partners, exactly as a
Rep Link would were the Role a Sub-Circle, unless the Policy de fines an
alternate pathway for the excluded Partners to process Tensions related to
that Role.
2.3.3 EXCLUSION FOR MINOR ALLOCATIONS
Sometimes, a Partner allocates only a very minor, nearly insign ificant
amount of attention to a Defined Role in a Circle. If the Circle ’s Lead
Link reasonably believes this is the case, the Lead Link may exclude that
Partner from serving as a Core Circle Member as a result of that Role
assignment.
If a Partner is so excluded, the Lead Link has a duty to consider and
process Tensions conveyed by the excluded Partner, exactly as a Rep Link
would were the Role a Sub-Circle, unless an alternate pathway i s defined
for the excluded Partner to process Tensions related to that Role.

Hope that helps,
Jean-Michel
