We recommend that each Assembly Convener read this code of conduct and then read it out to Assembly members whenever necessary.
All Common Law Assemblies consist of many people from all walks of life with one common goal – to reclaim ownership over our own lives as natural men and women. The notion of a blissful utopia is a delusion. There will be clashes and disagreements in any given society, hence the need for a code of conduct and rules of engagement.
While we have come together to unite our efforts to live up to our Common Law principles, we must also understand that each member has to claim their deliverance from modern slavery as an individual.
Common Law is not a platform for wokeism or any -ism for that matter. We debate, agree or disagree and aim to reach a consensus, realising that divided we fall. Hence, there is no place for feeling offended; this arena is for mature individuals who treat each other with mutual respect as free men and free women who only bow to God.
United we stand, divided we fall
Common Law Australia Values
Our core values underpin all that we do in our assemblies.
We will respect and uphold the values of Common Law Australia, which are:
- Leadership – We provide leadership and lead common law change.
- Integrity – We are honest and transparent in our relationships and are accountable for our performance in our Common Law Assembly and in the wider community. We reliably and honestly fulfil our commitments, and consistently demonstrate congruence between our words and actions.
- Empowerment – We are driven to deliver high standards and outcomes, and to see all members of the community flourish. We provide fair and open access to knowledge, information and support.
- Quality – We strive for excellence and professionalism in all our services and activities within the Common Law Assembly, and in our dealings with the public.
- Courage – We are committed to speaking up to protect our values, people’s safety and wellbeing, and the culture we are creating.
- Respect – We treat everyone with respect, and recognise our differences. We listen and encourage diverse thinking to achieve the best outcomes, and consistently treat everyone with dignity, respect and courtesy.
- Inclusiveness – We recognise that diversity is a strength and seek to involve all members as active participants in our Assembly and the community.
- Connection – We seek to collaborate and build relationships, and ensure others feel connected and included.
- Celebration – We readily celebrate the efforts and successes, large and small, of our Common Law Assembly community, our members, community partners, supporters and peers. And we regularly have FUN!
- Growth and improvement – We recognise the need for continual review and improvement as our CLAWS community grows and develops.
- Religion and Beliefs – We believe our religious beliefs are ours and ours alone. We abide by the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1901 Section 116. We do not discuss religion in any of our assembly meetings. Nor do we allow our religious beliefs to colour our behaviour and discussions in assembly meetings.
