SoFA Membership

Yes, we’d love to have you!

Why join Sociocracy For All? To become part of an international community of people who are working to share sociocracy widely. We work together, we support each other, and we share resources. Circles decide together and make things happen. And every once in a while, we just hang out in a video call to spend time together and to get to know each other more.

Essential membership policies

  1. As a member — working or supporting — your annual financial commitment to SoFA starts with membership dues of $50 USD plus a variable donation of your choosing, from $1 to $1,000s.
  2. Every working member joins at least one work circle for a minimum work effort of 2 hours per month (fixed) and participates in work outside of meetings (variable).
  3. Intention to connect: give and receive feedback, engage lovingly in conflicts as they arise, communicate about your progress and setbacks.

When you join SoFA, you join as a volunteer in a working organization. While we hope your participation will contribute to your learning, you are not joining a training program. We expect members to understand sociocracy well enough to function effectively in a sociocratic organization.  We determine in your interview whether your experience is sufficient to qualify you for membership, and if we decide that it is not, we help you identify what you can do to get the necessary experience. Folks who have the following experience are considered fully qualified to join SoFA:

  • alumni of Sociocracy Leadership Training (SoLT or ProPS)
  • alumni of both the Introduction to Sociocracy + Facilitation courses online
  • participants in equivalent level training by organizations other than SoFA

If you have other relevant experience, let’s talk!
