There are three roles that are elected, rather than assigned. Those roles are Facilitator, Rep Link, and Secretary.


Note: Per the Holacracy Constitution, all core circle members are eligible for election and each may hold multiple elected roles, except for the Lead Link of a circle, who may not be elected as its Facilitator or Rep Link.


Elections can be held before or during Governance meetings.  

For a complete walk-through of the election process see this article: Holacracy Election Process 101: Election Process Walk-through.

Each election will be for a fixed term, announced by the Facilitator (when there is already one) at the beginning of the process.


  • Add an agenda item and select "Hold Election" (even if the election already took place before the meeting) and select from the drop down menu the role to be elected:




  • Enter the elected candidate's name in the corresponding field and the term limit:




  • Accept the proposal and close the meeting. The role is now entered in the system.
