Council members are appointed by the guild leader after seeking feedback from existing council members.
Some characteristics and traits that set a council member apart are:
A high level of integrity A strong desire to serve Little to no desire for power or position Exceptional generosity Steadfast dedication and commitment Dependability, responsibility, and accountability Honesty Deep devotion and loyalty to the guild principles, guild, and all guild members Initiative A team-oriented mindset Objectivity Good communication skills Able to consider a variety of perspectives Selflessness Respect Flexibility Willingness to work hard Little need for recognition or reward Patience
Leadership is not a position of privilege; it is a position of service. Leaders are held to higher standards and are asked to sacrifice and give of themselves. The reward for being a leader is the mantle of extra responsibility and effort and the fulfillment which performing service brings.
