creating new circle - how to initialize roles/structure

We've been practicing Holacracy for four years but surely have a "newbie" question.  At the general circle, we created a new circle, with roles that will be filled by people in the existing organization.  How does this new circle get it's starting structure?

Hi Brian,

A way is to hold a private "set-up gov meeting" with the (future) Lead Link, in order to describe the minimum of roles (on going activities) needed to reach the purpose of the new circle. Captur the initial structure using GlassFrog.

After that, improve this initial structure tension driven through regular Gov meeting process.

Hope that helps,
Jean-Michel
