The Northern Coordinating Council is a former legislative body of the Community of Goëtia, first convened in 1675. In 1680 it was dissolved and its Families joined the Conference of Cycle Families.


Each family sends one representative to the Coordinating Council, which meets each year in Meeting Place. The current number of representatives in the council is 6. The council elects a President as the first order of business every year.

The President of the Council acts as one of the Community of Goetia's head of government, along with the President of the older Conference of Cycle Families and can be empowered by the Council with any range of duties or responsibilities. Failure to serve as President satisfactorily will result in failure to be elected, shame brought to the president's cycle family, and even possible exile from the Community.

Actions of the Coordinating Council

Each council keeps minutes and these minutes are available to all members of the community. Records have been kept from every annual meeting, including the informal Family Conferences that founded the Community itself and established the Goëtian taboos necessary to keep the Community safe and hidden. The major decisions of each annual Conference are listed below.
