All circle members are automatically considered as core circle members upon joining a circle, even if the user joined as a member without role.
What does it mean?
👉 It means they'll take part in the governance decisions and operations of the circle. They can join a meeting, participate to the election process and suggest evolutions (through proposals) for their roles and circles. They can work on the circle's projects, actions and OKRs.
There may be instances where it doesn't make sense for a member or a role to be involved in the decisions of the circle. Typically, if that member/role performs an insignificant task or doesn't spend much time involved in the circle.
For example, if a role is assigned to 30 people, there might be 5 core members in the role who will be able to work on the governance and the remaining 25 members who will be able to view the role as non-core members without changing it.
How to make a member non-core?
To exclude a member from the governance decision-making process and operations of a circle, edit the assignation of the member for all roles within the Circle.
You can make a member non-core when:
Assigning them to a role
Editing their authority
Simply untick the box next to Core member
Members that are non-core cannot:
Attend meetings for the circle
Take part in the governance decisions such as submitting governance proposals or voting on proposals/elections.
Work on the operations of the role/circle (projects, actions and OKRS)
Note: A non-core member can be assigned to one or several role, except core roles.
