Terms of Service
OF THE LODE AND AGX COMMUNITIES
RESTORING SILVER TO THE MONETARY SYSTEM
We, the members of the LODE and AGX Communities, in order to encourage interest in silver as a monetary legacy and to re-establish its role as a monetary utility, have come together to ordain and establish this Constitution for the governance of our Community.
The name of our Community Association is LODE AND AGX COLLECTIVE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
The purpose of our Community is to restore silver to a global monetary system; putting silver to work as modern money.
The general body of our LODE Community is comprised of members with an interest in silver utility and bailment. A person may become a member of the Association by engaging in the Lode Token bailment program to support AGX utility and its membership. All members have equal standing and authority and one vote for each Representative position.
The governance of the Community shall be conducted by a legislature composed of not less than three Representatives who shall meet no less than annually to enact policies and by-laws. The initial Representatives shall be appointed by the Community enabling service providers. Unless called by majority of the Representatives, thereafter elections shall be held the later of every fifth year or by petition of not less than 5% of members. A quorum for elections shall be 5% of members. Representatives, or acting through the service providers, shall determine policies governing the Lode and AGX programs, bailment, procedures for elections, committees, Constitution and by-law interpretation and all other matters as the Representatives of the members. In their sittings each Representative shall have one vote. Representatives may appoint Representatives to replace retiring or dismissed Representatives. Representatives may be impeached for fraud, conflict or other major defaults determined by majority of the Representatives. The Representatives may elect a President, Treasurer and Secretary.
This Constitution may be amended by vote of 2/3rds of members at a duly called members meeting.
