CWC Nominations Guide

This page explains community guidelines on what literature a candidate should prepare during their nomination to a CWC.
Each project in the Foundation should have an autonomous Core Working Committee. Steering Council independently creates composition and constitution of Core Working Committees of each project. Steering Council also decides the admission criteria to Project CWCs.
Whenever a new project is defined in the Foundation's community, the Steering Council members generally begin to constitute the CWC within a month's time.
Besides Project CWCs, other Open Council bodies also appoint Independent CWCs. These Council bodies also independently create composition and constitution of these Independent CWCs, affiliated to their Council's objective.
Core Working Committee members are active members in the Foundation's community. CWC membership allows members to actively participate in steering and moving projects and to participate in Foundation's advocacy, different Council initiatives, with more tools and resources of the community.

For the Project CWC Nomination:

Before a community proposal is initiated, to build consensus on a candidate's nomination, candidates shall "File supporting documents" to record their nominations in Foundation's records registry. It is a good idea to keep the appropriate Steering Council member, informed of their nomination request.
During the nomination, a candidate shall file only truthful information:
  • Members should highlight - why do they want to contribute to the specific CWC instead of any other Foundation project? Why are they motivated to work on this project?
  • Members should file their objective analysis on the Project's Roadmap, based on project’s community discussion?
Interview Guidelines for Steering Council Members: Once the candidate has sought a nomination, and files the supporting documents, Steering Council members document an interview with the candidate and publish the interview for the public facing records of the community.
The interview should be undertaken before an appropriate Open Council body member nominates the community proposal in favour of the candidate's nomination.
If the community proposal for nomination has already been filed, then the public facing records/documentation of the interview shall be furnished, within the stipulated period of 72 hours.

For the Independent CWC nomination:

Before a community proposal is initiated, to build consensus on a candidate's nomination, candidates shall "File supporting documents" to record their nominations in Foundation's records registry. It is a good idea to keep the appropriate Open Council member, informed of their nomination request.
Interview Guidelines for Open Council Members: Once the candidate files the supporting documents, an appropriate Open Council body member documents an interview with the candidate and publish the interview for the public facing records of the community.
The interview should be undertaken before an appropriate Open Council body member nominates the community proposal in favour of the candidate's nomination.
If the community proposal for nomination has already been filed, then the public facing records/documentation of the interview shall be furnished, within the stipulated period of 72 hours.
