The Gene Keys Society is led by a non-executive and voluntary governance body, known as The Custodial Council.
- Formulates and guides the Society’s vision, mission and purpose.
- Ensures the Society stays fiscally healthy and operates within non-profit law.
- Determines governance structure.
- Oversees Society appointments.
- Identifies and sustains external alliances. including with Gene Keys Publishing and with our Fiscal Sponsor, Inquiring Systems Inc.
- Delegates day-to-day operations to the Society’s Core Team.
In terms of its place in the world, the Custodial Council has a delicate task to perform, in developing the Society as a ‘future human-oriented, self-organising and living entity’ that embodies Gene Keys teachings, while respecting non-profit law in the State of California, USA, where its fiscal sponsor is registered.
Internally, the Council must also fulfil the promise of its bylaws to reconcile two sets of needs: the one of coherence in remaining true to the original vision of Gene Keys and its Founder; the other of participation and giving voice and space to the members of the Society. Together, in balance and harmony, these form two halves of a unified whole.
Custodial Council members aspire to fulfil their role with devotion, humour and a light heart.
