Community Leader Expectations
Community Leaders oversee their local community which is geographically defined by their school district.
• The most important thing is to develop a community of hope that encourages each other. We stand side by side and no one stands alone. We care about our community.
• Get people to sign up, even if that is all they do. The more people who sign up, the louder our voice becomes. Once they sign up, they will be able to receive critical information and updates.
• Keep in touch with what is happening with your community. You are our liaison to your school board, city council, small businesses, chamber of commerce, churches, townships, families in need, and so on. If you decide to run for any of these offices, we will support you.
• Reach out to your small businesses letting them know how much we appreciate and support them. Ask if we could put a business card holder or a brochure holder on their counter. We will do everything to promote their business, especially the ones who sign up for We The County. Contact me for brochures.
• Gather a few people together for a meeting explaining our vision. If you like, contact your WTC County Leader and ask them to come. Also, keep a heads up for like-minded groups that are meeting and ask if you can share about WTC.
• Once a County has an established County Leader, we will start holding monthly meetings to draw people together, cast the vision, develop an action plan, share ideas, get to know our neighbors and LAUGH! Yes, laughter is mandatory.
If this sounds like something you would like to do, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
County Leader Expectations
Conduct monthly meetings for the purpose of setting direction and plan of action for the county with help from the Regional Leader. WTC is a platform that allows people to gather together to bring change to their local community and county, eventually affecting the entire state. County Leaders will share ideas with other County Leaders strengthening and uniting our cause.
• Make contact with County Commissioners, County Sheriff, and Prosecuting Attorney to make them aware of WTC and your Leadership role for WTC. Any press release statements should be composed by someone who is a capable communicator. We do not attack people verbally, but stand strong for what we believe.
• Support the WTC Community Leaders by meeting with them, helping them get organized and to develop relationships. See what battles they are facing in their communities, especially school district issues. Encourage them to sit on school boards, city councils, township boards, and other community service positions.
• Conduct yourself with integrity and respect for others. Even if we disagree with someone, we respect their freedom of speech. We do not call people derogatory names. You will have to be flexible in dealing with different personalities within your group. Remember, what unites us is freedom through the Constitution.
• You have the ability to choose Assistant County Leaders who can help fulfill the County Leader Expectations.
• Communicate with WTC members in your county through email and other means to encourage them and be aware of what is happening in your local communities. Meet with other like-minded groups to share our vision.
• Let businesses know we support them. A possible idea is to have a small business owner on your team who focusses on recruiting other business owners.
• Politically, we are not Republican or Democrat. We support those who will defend the Original Intent of our Constitution. We are non-violent, but will defend one another if attacked.
• WTC Region Leaders and/or the Founder can remove a member or leader at any time for any reason. This is a private group.
You must be willing to have a background search if one is requested. Any information that might arise from a background search does not automatically mean a Leader is disqualified. This information is confidential. Previous experience in a leadership position, i.e., church, business, community, elected position, coaching, or something similar is required.

WTC Leadership Agreement
I have signed up as “We The County Member” (sign up here). I have read and agreed to abide by the following as stated on the We The County website: County Leader Expectations or Community Leader Expectations (depending on your Leadership position), Our Purpose, What We Oppose, and our Game Plan. I will not share WTC member contact information with anyone. I agree with my name and email as a WTC Leader being listed on WTC website. I agree to host (County Leader) or help host (Community Leader) monthly County meetings following the recommended format. Assistant County Leaders follow the same expectations and guidelines as a County Leader.
I agree if I am requested to complete a background check, the form will be completed and returned within a 7-day period. Note: This background check is the same one given to volunteers of many churches. If something comes back on the search, it does not automatically mean you will be removed from Leadership.
In order for your Leadership position to be official you must be a member of WTC and the Leadership Agreement form must be completely filled out and submitted. Then you will go through a vetting process in order to assure we are like-minded and compatible. If the Founder of We The County deems necessary, your Leadership position and membership may be revoked at any time.
Thank you for being a part of a powerful and dynamic leadership team! Working together, along with other Patriotic Leaders from around the state of Michigan we will restore freedom!
County Monthly Meetings Format
The purpose of the monthly meetings is to keep people connected, form a community, share ideas, recruit new people, distribute brochures, business cards and promotional material, develop game plans, bring in guest speakers that are like-minded from other groups, develop community groups like parent-teacher groups, second amendment groups and so on.
This is also a good time to educate people about our constitutional rights, nothing too long and drawn out, but informative. Ask county commissioners, township representatives, state reps, state senators, the Sheriff, health officials and others to come out and address the group and answer questions.
Meetings are a good time to recruit Community Leaders.
The meeting should have a set agenda set forth by the County Leader, Assistant County Leaders and Community Leaders. The Regional Leader can also help with the agenda.
Meeting open with a short prayer, and the Pledge of Allegiance. Keep the meeting on track addressing the issues on the agenda. At the end allow of few minutes for open discussion.
Try to keep the meeting from 60 to 90 minutes long.
Have a person take the minutes, and later type the minutes. This will help setting agendas, direction and getting things accomplished.
Whether you have a group of 5, 50 or 150, it is important to get together on a regular basis.
Have fun! Always keep the meeting friendly, positive, hopeful and fun.
