Sound Alliance 


How our Affiliates Operate: 

Affiliates use our organizational structure to advance those purposes and represent the authority of the member organizations. 


Core Teams: Teams within each of the Alliance’s member organizations, as much as possible. Core Teams are  responsible for engaging their own members in carrying out the mission of the organization – for  itself and for the world - in a way that is Relational, Reflective / Learning, and Action-Oriented.

Delegates Assembly / Congress: The ultimate decision making body, made up of “delegates” representing the body of member  organizations that constitute the Alliance

Strategy Team: The heart of the Alliance’s leadership, made up of leaders committed to advancing and balancing  their own organization’s interests, the Delegates larger agenda and the whole of the Alliance.

Research / Action Teams: Includes individuals from any member organizations interested in the development and  implementation of issue campaigns. Reports to the Strategy Team and Delegates Assembly.

Board / Admin Team: The officers of the Alliance responsible for the legal and financial compliance. It is a smaller  group of key leaders who give quality attention to the legal and administrative functions of the organization.
