The onboarding of new Council members entails practical training on the tools and processes of the Reps Council and mentorship from former Council members, the program lead and other leaders at Mozilla.

The process starts from the day after the election results. The new council members will receive practical training on lasts for 3 weeks and this SOP outlines most of the practical training.

The mentorship process will last longer with former council members budding up with new council members. Mozilla leaders will also be involved in the mentorship of new and existing Council members.


Project lead will be in charge of leading the efforts, with the help of the Council.


Once the Council elections are over and new Council members are elected, the project lead will send them an email:
