Governance/Powers of representation
This document is the official reference for powers of representations.
What's a power of representation?
The Nasqueron bylaws provides The power of representation collectively belongs to the members. as a general principle (art. 4.4 §1).
For practical reasons, members can also grant powers of representation to appoint individuals to represent the project. The statutes provide Members may adopt a power of representation. If so, the agent is authorized to represent the project on an official capacity. (art. 4.4 §2).
These powers of representation are generally managed directly by the SIGs through a delegation of authority (art. 4.5).

These contacts are noted at Operations grimoire/External services.
