THE COMMUNITY BUILD PROGRAM
In order to utilize the community build programs within the network members must collaborate within 4 types of communities.
Pods – 3 to 12 members
Groups – 12 to 48 members
Clusters-48 to 144 members
Co-operative Communities-144 to 144,000 members
When groups achieve the cluster community status of 144 members they can then begin to collectively collaborate with other cluster communities and form regional, national or global Co-operative Communities.
Co-operative Communities-When 1,000 cluster communities join together they create a Creative Action Center that consists of 144,000 co-opeartive community members. With these types of connections they are able to make great change in the world by their exchange of information, sharing of resources and concentrated focus.
