The General Assembly has the final word on all Occupy Berkeley decisions. However, while the GA is a great place for making decisions, it is not the best place to research and implement the small level details that any action requires. For this, we have working groups. Working groups are created by the GA to fulfill certain tasks, and the working groups report at the beginning of each Assembly on their progress to the GA.
All working groups are completely open for anyone to join. As is the case for the General Assembly at-large, there are no leaders within working groups. There may be a point-person who is responsible for reporting the working group’s progress to the General Assembly, however.
