There are two groups that support the Foundation, and both have the north star of facilitating decentralized governance in the long run. Let’s start with the first: the Special Council.
Who they are: The Special Council is made up of accomplished experts and leaders in the Web3 space. Initially appointed for a six-month term, the Special Council will thereafter be elected annuallly by the community, with the next election in September, 2022.
What they do: The Special Council oversees administration of the Foundation. This requires balancing the desire to enable ideas from the community with providing oversight to set ourselves up for success. Week-to-week, this means meeting to discuss AIPs and ensuring that what goes to the DAO for a vote is as well thought-out as possible.
