BYLAWS of OIKEOS Christian Network (8/8/22)

(A 501 (c) (3) Perbadanan Amal Awam dan Bukan Untung)

PASUKAN I. NAMA

Nama organisasi ini ialah: OIKEOS Christian Network (selepas ini dirujuk sebagai "Perbadanan").

ARTIKEL II. MUKADIMAH

The governance of the Corporation shall be comprised of 3 teams- Leadership Team, Oversight Team, and Finance Team. These 3 teams together, not exclusively, make up the governance of the Corporation. The governance of the Corporation is distinct from the local autonomy of a fellowship or local group in the network. The Corporation governance is based on the principle of decision-making teams having checks and balances on their authority. Each team is allowed a degree of autonomy within agreed upon limits (as detailed in the bylaws or by consent of all 3 teams). Checks and balances are in place for each of the 3 teams to avoid any unilateral consolidation of authority. The Finance Team can call into question and if needed deny any expenditure. The Leadership Team also has checks and balances from the Oversight Team who can call into question any decision made and, if necessary, call a meeting of the three teams to resolve the issue. If such a meeting is called and does not result in a majority decision by all involved, a majority vote in each team constitutes a single vote and, in such matters, a 2 of 3 vote would decide the matter. Within the Leadership Team are 5 Officers (Executive Team Members) who coordinate the day-by-day operations and guide the direction of the organization with counsel from all three teams as appropriate. The Executive Team with the exception of voting for governance team appointments have no vote in Leadership Team meetings. The voting members of the Leadership Team can overrule the Executive Team with a two-thirds vote. The President or his/her designee conducts leadership meeting agendas, and keep the Leadership Team, Oversight Team, and Finance Team up to date on matters pertaining to the organization. The Finance Team is checked and balanced by the Oversight Team, which can overrule the Finance Team with a two-thirds vote.
