Member Assembly

Member assembly (MA) are a great way to involve members in the policy process or give them the opportunity to have a say about other issues that arise within Volt. Instead of a simple yes/no vote, a representative group of members gets informed and can come up with great ways forward. It is a therefore a great participation instrument to develop more empowerment and active participation of Volt members.
A citizens assembly (CA) is a way not only to include Volt members but also citizens in general. Volt members have a different expertise and experiences, but they also have a similar outlook on issues. A good way to include more perspectives within the dialogue is therefore to also ask other people to join the deliberation.
