How to join Council?
This page explains how an individual member is assigned a Global Council committee membership.
Foundation promotes outstanding socially inclined individuals from all corridors of human life, and promotes sentient leadership amongst its members.
If you are an individual member, with a keen interest in attaining a Council membership, to drive the Foundation's agenda forward, please guide yourself with following community principles:

For any of the committee memberships- Steering, Ethics and Media committee.

STEP 1: Steady and visible contribution:
We believe all community members have a stake in decision making and governance of Foundation's initiatives.
If you are here, & reading this, it should be assumed that you have been contributing to Foundation's activities and creating a positive recognition of your contribution, amongst your peers, over a consistent period of time- atleast six months.
Foundation members understand that the contributions are subjective. An individual member shall strive to create impact with their contribution, such that other committee members should be able to endorse member's nomination to above Council committees.
Any member seeking a Council committee membership, shall deepen their engagement in the community, with their contributions.
A leader is inherently a follower of people's voice. Your membership to Council committee is a responsible role to lead community members forward. To do justice to the role of leadership, members seeking a nomination, shall be understanding, and empathetic towards Foundation's other members.
Committee members have a larger role in ensuring democratic representation of non committee members.
STEP 2: Community Discussion:
You MUST never self nominate yourself for the Committee memberships. Our community is based on peer to peer review. Therefore, another community member shall post a proposal.
Read about guidelines on Self and Nepotism here.
The proposal shall recognize your contribution and discuss your nomination to one of the above Council committees. The community discussion shall further introduce goals and objectives of your participation in the specific Committee.
Basically, any nomination shall be backed by a documented proposal from the nominated(or to be nominated member). Following template can be used by the member.
STEP 3: Council Vote:
Based on the response to the community discussion, an existing Council committee member shall nominate your appointment(along with the nomination proposal above) for a Board Vote, on it's mailing list: [email protected]
Read about Vote here.
STEP 4: Quorum:
Executive Board ratifies the action of Board vote by appointing the member to the Board Committee, for which the nomination should achieve a quorum in favour of the appointment.
Read how each committee's quorum is achieved in pages, describing the Committee.
If the quorum is not in favour of the said nomination of appointment, then the member shall receive a feedback from the peers (Council members).
Subsequent re nomination can only be filed after a period of 3(three) months to gain committee memberships.(Read about Incumbency here.)
