Global SoL governance
The General Assembly meets at least once a year to maintain a shared vision, adherence to SoL principles, brand integrity and the proper functioning and development of the Global SoL. The General Assembly makes the major decisions about Global SoL policies, finance and research priorities.
The SoL communities making the financial contribution for the year are entitled to vote and to nominate a member to represent the community at Global SoL Board. Each voting community has one vote.
The Global SoL Board is elected by the General Assembly. Board members work in service of all community members and facilitate the implementation of the Global SoL priorities and policies.
The Inspirational Council is nominated and elected by the General Assembly; it has an advisory role. They ensure our reflective practice by sharing their vision on today’s world, providing new perspectives, keeping us grounded, inspiring us to action, and helping us communicate what we are doing.
