How does the state OWR relate to its local chapters?

We want vibrant, high-involvement, largely independent local chapters and an effective statewide organization and brand. What that means for the nuts and bolts of organizational operation (definition of chapter boundaries, division of labor between state and local, etc.) is always a work in progress, but what it means for governance and program is easier. On governance, “one-member, one-vote” is our basic rule. On program, state program will have “supremacy” in the sense that nothing contrary to its values and elements can be done, but locals are free to experiment above and beyond them. The state platform is a floor, not a ceiling, on constructive democracy in chapters.
