In the Spring and Summer of 2006 WELL created formal governing documents, including the Strategic Plan, the Membership Document, and the Governing Document. At the time, WELL was a project of the Renewable Energy Development Institute (REDI). Together these comprised our formal agreements on decision making. In December of 2006 WELL's formal relationship with REDI ended. A dormant 501c3, Earthmind, was reactivated and became WELL's Fiscal Sponsor. In the Spring and Summer of 2007 WELL and Earthmind worked toward fully merging into a single organization with a single governing body and governing documents, including the Restated Amended Articles, the Amended Bylaws, and Meeting Proceedures.
Currently effective documents are dated 10/22/07, the date they were adopted by the WELL Working Membership.
