The Coordination Committee manages and represents the Association
- Assemblies: 1
An assembly is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general assembly (which meets once a year to define the organisation's main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organisation), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of assemblies.

We have not waited to make this dream come true, but have embodied it in our own governance: it is the community that decides the course of the Decidim project and makes Decidim a technology of, by and for all.
From the beginning, Decidim has a Social Contract that includes the values of the project. All members of the Free Software Association Decidim agree to comply with this contract. It is from this contract, which can be found at https://decidim.org/ca/contract/, that the Association takes its values:
This is just a list of everything we want to do in the near future ;-):
In the Association we organize ourselves through different spaces, be they Governing Bodies or Consultative Bodies. As we grow we will be deploying all these bodies:
They are the governing bodies of the Association:
They are consultative and advisory bodies:
The participation of the members and all the organs is done either in person or digitally through the Metadecidim platform, an infrastructure created for the democratic decision-making of the Decidim community that can be found at https://meta.decidim.org.
All the organs of the Association will publish, whenever possible, their minutes, agreements, reports, memoirs, budgets or any other type of working document on the Metadecidim platform, which will be accessible to all members.
People and organisations involved in the project can be members. Here we explain in detail how to do it.General Assembly of the Association Decidim: This is a private assembly, transparent
