Northern Coordinating Council
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.
|1675||Establishment||Dean Hammer, Crophaulers||The leaders of the new families--The Crophaulers, Gladius, and The Troglonauts--in the north are meeting together in this place between their turf, to recognize each other as the families owning the turf they control and agreeing to mutually develop this Meeting Place.|
|1675||Patrol Runs||Dean Hammer, Crophaulers||Nomadic families will patrol the runs between turfs and Meeting Place. A person must first belong to a turfed family before they can join a nomadic family. They may only join a nomadic family that patrols the run to their main family.|
|1676||Old Ways||Dean Hammer, Crophaulers||The Old Ways are officially banned in the Families, Turf, and Runs of the NCC. Any person found to be practicing or tolerating a practitioner of the Old Ways shall be cast out on a dingy into the open sea into the southernly current.|
|1677||Modernization||Cooper Bull, Gladius||The NCC shall endeavor to present itself as a modern, state-like entity to the world. It shall seek foreign investments, trade deals, resource exchanges, and closer integration with potential allies.|
|1679||Reconciliation||Cooper Bull, Gladius||Gladius, the Troglonauts, and the Crophaulers will begin to dismantle their shelters and make their way towards Gathering Place. The Families of the NCC have accepted an invitation to join the Conference of Cycle Families.|
|1680||Disestablishment||Cooper Bull, Gladius||The Northern Coordinating Council does by unanimous vote, disbands and disestablishes itself.|
