The following text defines the structure and mission of a non-profit educational organization known as the Washington Hemp Education Network (W.H.E.N.). This organization consists of volunteer members.
The mission of the Washington Hemp Education Network (W.H.E.N.) is to empower the people of Washington State, through educational activities about the history, status, and uses (both current and potential) of the Hemp plant (cannabis sativa, also known as marijuana), to make informed choices about the issues surrounding re-legalization of Hemp in Washington State.
Recognition of Benefit
The Washington Hemp Education Network recognizes as beneficial all responsible commercial, medicinal, and spiritual uses of the Hemp plant conducted for peaceful ends.
Program and Goals
To achieve the stated mission, the Washington Hemp Education Network will plan and implement legal, nonviolent projects that:
All projects planned and implemented by the Washington Hemp Education Network will be consistent with the Mission, Recognition of Benefit, and Program and Goals statements defined herein.
Endorsement and Support
The Washington Hemp Education Network will endorse and support only those projects undertaken by individuals or other entities that are consistent with the Mission, Recognition of Benefit, and Program and Goals.
Method of Operation
This organization will meet regularly and will operate on the principle of consensus. As defined by the Center for Conflict Resolution, Madison, WI, consensus is "a decision-making process in which all parties involved explicitly agree to the final decision.
Consensus decision making does not mean that all parties are completely satisfied with the final outcome, but that the decision is acceptable to all because no one feels that his or her vital interests or values are violated by it."
A board of directors will not be elected; rather, the founding charter members will constitute the decision-making body, will serve as the projects and issues forum facilitation group, and will exercise no power other than that of presiding over meetings as defined by the Method of Operation, and of approving membership applications and filling vacancies in the charter member group when a charter member leaves the group.
Other future members may be added to the decision-making body of charter members if a consensus decision for such action is made by the charter members. Members other than charter members are encouraged to participate in discussions on issues that are being addressed during the decision-making process; participation in the final consensus
decision is limited to charter members.
These procedures should suffice for most issues facing the charter members of W.H.E.N. If a situation should arise that cannot be resolved by the above procedures, the clerk will reference the consensus handbook published by the Center for Conflict Resolution. Charter members who are absent from announced meetings are by default relinquishing their consensus vote for the affected meetings only.
