Announcing Policies?

If a policy is passed in the GCC, or any super-circle, is the Secretary understood to be responsible for announcing the policy to all the sub-circles?

Hi Fred,

Answer is no - no expectation in my understanding for doing so. All sub-circle members may be notified by using the "My Subscriptions" option offered by GlassFrog.

Didn't know about that - just located it in GF. We're not yet on the premium plan though, and likely won't be for a while due to some factors outside of our control.

The Constitution says that the Secretary is accountable for:

  • Capturing and publishing the outputs of the Circle’s required meetings, and maintaining a compiled view of the Circle’s current Governance, checklist items, and metrics


A policy change is a possible output of a Governance meeting, and this accountability states that the Secretary must publish these outputs. So it depends on your interpretation about what "publishing" is.

That's a really good point - thanks for this!
