Welcome to the CNVC Global Coordinating Council (GCC) section of NVCwiki. The goal of this area is to enable CNVC GCC members and Network Coordinators to connect and co-edit documents.
- Note: This section is now distinct from the CNVC LT section.
The GCC functions include contributing to support and connection throughout the CNVC network, sustaining existing circles and helping to cultivate new circles. We have a goal of having an NVC team in every country of the world by 2016. Our aspiration is that the GCC and these teams will live the process of NVC as fully as possible.
The GCC, like all the circles, is both an autonomous and interdependent entity empowered with determining and implementing strategies to fulfill its functionality within mutually determined guidelines. It will be linked with decision-making power within the LT through its functional leaders and representatives.
As part of a sociocratic system, communication and power will be both "top down" and "bottom up". The GCC is one of a few "top level" circles of the LT and the functional leader(s) of the GCC are thus members of the LT which is responsible for the overall functioning of the organizations day-to-day business. Eventually, there will be an elected representative from the GCC as well that will sit on the LT, fulfilling the aspiration of double-linking.
We hope to have a GCC representative on the LT by the end of 2007. This will require clarity about the structure of the GCC which we are currently working on.
The leaders of the GCC are Jim and Jori Manske, elected sociocratically by the LT in October, 2006. To communicate via email with Jim and Jori, send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org; Jim's Skype name is jimjori; Jori's Skype name is jorijim.

Minutes for extra-ordinary meeting of SEA&O November 3, 2006
Present: Linda Rysenbry, Liz Gay, Cate Crombie (initially), Cherie Scott Jim & Jori Manske
Apologies: Shari Macree, Dorset Campbell Ross, Chris Rajendram, Ron Ngata
Checking-in: Linda â€“ Grateful for Lizâ€™s impulse for this meeting and grateful for Jori and Jimâ€™s enthusiasm to get together. Liz â€“ Hopeful of getting clarity and understanding and looking forward to the call Cherie â€“ grateful to have managed to get on to the call by phone and happy to be here Jim â€“ Enjoys community and remembering recently assisting another group in establishing connection and a circle and looking forward to contributing to SEA&O and others. Contributing to community is the â€˜juiceâ€™ he enjoys. Jori â€“ met Jim in community and is looking forward to an increase in connection in the Network. Sees the power of creation is in connections we make. Celebrating the restructuring designed in Atlanta is based on functionality rather than geography and therefore more in alignment with sociocracy.
Exchange around the intention of the meeting during which Jori â€“ expressed intention for the meeting to be about connecting and then seeing how we decide to remain connected ongoingly and Liz â€“ expressed desire for answers to questions she had about the output of the Atlanta meeting.
Through questions and discussion we:
Â· looked at the minutes from Atlanta â€“ in particular the new structure â€“ http://en.nvcwiki.com/images/Minutes_Addendum_v3.pdf
Jori clarified that the structure is intended and agreements have been made, that support freedom to act by individuals who fulfil leadership roles eg. The Network managers Jim & Jori and Marshall & Valentina in their leadership roles, in circumstances that are extraordinary have the prior agreement of the team/GCC to take action as they see fit.
Liz sought clarifications and received empathy
Cherie â€“ expressed that it matters very much to her HOW things are actioned. And not knowing details felt concerned about HOW actions had been taken regarding Liz gayâ€™s membership Of the GCC.
Jim and Jori shared personal mourning in connection to the above.
Linda â€“ acknowledged Joriâ€™s personal mourning and expressed desire to hear a collective expression from the GCC (if it was true for them) of mourning. Feeling concerned about there being a â€˜groupâ€™ that made the decision and now not having a sense of connection to the â€˜groupâ€™. Empathy around fears connected to groups acting in a way which individuals later have misgivings about. Accepting that all were doing their best at the time; needing safety and to know that something has been harvested that might support us not repeating this.
Jori â€“ expressed her personal harvest relating to having not taken action when she heard one more word than she would enjoy to hear. Enquired as to whether Linda would enjoy to contact all the GCC members and hear their harvest.
Cherie â€“ Glad to have taken the time to be present on the call and appreciating the connection having been heard.
Jim â€“ Pleased with what was accomplished and sensing that we are part way toward where we want to be. Looking forward to the next part. Proposed another meeting be scheduled â€“ all agreed.
Linda â€“ Feeling light and very happy to have connected to need for harvesting and learning. Appreciating Jim and Jori having taken on the role of Network managers and looking forward to how we grow from here.
Liz and Jori remained on the line.
Next meeting date and time to be forwarded when established.
