The general Assembly

Yes We Camp is a 1901 law asso­ci­a­tion. Its mem­bers are cho­sen by co-option, with the inten­tion of bring­ing togeth­er both peo­ple involved in dai­ly projects, and a few part­ners and close friends who pro­vide a capac­i­ty for hind­sight and con­nec­tion. The Gen­er­al Assem­bly of Mem­bers takes place each year in Octo­ber over sev­er­al days. The mem­bers then choose from among them­selves, by means of an elec­tion with­out can­di­dates, a Col­le­giate Board of Direc­tors of fif­teen peo­ple.

Board of directors

There is no pres­i­den­cy, so all mem­bers of the Col­le­giate Coun­cil share in the respon­si­bil­i­ties assumed by the asso­ci­a­tion. The Col­le­gial Coun­cil is renewed by thirds each year. New­ly elect­ed mem­bers are elect­ed for a peri­od of three years, at the end of which they can­not be reap­point­ed (they may be re-elect­ed to join the Col­le­giate Coun­cil the fol­low­ing year, but not in direct con­ti­nu­ity of their pre­vi­ous engage­ment). Mem­bers of the asso­ci­a­tion who are also employ­ees can be elect­ed to the Col­le­gial Coun­cil. The strate­gic and oper­a­tional artic­u­la­tion between the Col­le­giate Coun­cil and the salaried teams mobi­lized on the projects is ensured by a “Sec­re­tari­at Vrai­ment Général” (SVG), which brings togeth­er sev­er­al mem­bers of the Col­le­gial Coun­cil, as well as the main oper­a­tional man­agers employed by the asso­ci­a­tion .


The man­age­ment of the salaried teams of Yes We Camp is trans­ver­sal and par­tic­i­pa­to­ry. Infor­ma­tion on strat­e­gy and finances is shared with the whole group, and a lot of col­lec­tive time is orga­nized to allow dis­cus­sions, at the lev­el of projects, and at the lev­el of the asso­ci­a­tion. We are devel­op­ing an approach to com­pen­sa­tion that is not just finan­cial. This is the idea behind the “Campers Pack”: a series of ben­e­fits in kind and dai­ly facil­i­ties which aim to make life at work pleas­ant and bal­anced: sev­en weeks of vaca­tion per year, pos­si­bil­i­ty of bor­row­ing the asso­ci­a­tion’s vehi­cles and tools, veg­e­tar­i­an and cooked lunch­es for the whole team every noon, bicy­cle mileage allowance, read vouch­ers, sev­er­al sem­i­nars through­out the year, pos­si­bil­i­ty of going on all our dif­fer­ent projects and encour­age­ment to learn the trades of oth­ers. This glob­al atten­tion cre­ates a unit­ed and pos­i­tive atmos­phere in the group. Along with these advan­tages, salaries are mod­est and very homo­ge­neous. This low lev­el is pri­mar­i­ly prag­mat­ic, but it is also a soci­etal posi­tion­ing. We believe that it is pos­si­ble to live well with­out hav­ing a very large salary, and it makes sense to apply that to our­selves.
