Our Organizational Structure

POCA’s governance is based on the principles of sociocracy; its structure works to organize the social capital of the CA movement. Social capital includes the time, energy, skills and goodwill that co-op members contribute. POCA would not exist at all without generous investments of time from many different co-op volunteers.
