Delegation in the  Citizens' Assembly Party Delegation to committees is an essential part of the democracies of most traditional councils, legislatures, etc.  Delegation is perhaps even more important for randomly selected bodies, since they are likely less politically savvy and so the learning and decision-making process is likely to be long and costly.  How would delegation work for the Policy Jury of the Citizens Assembly Party?  Here I share some ideas.
Policy Jury (~24 members) Sub Jury Sub Jury Sub Jury Random Selection Election Policy Advisors (Refine and approve proposals.  Can also share perspectives and make counter-proposals when a jury is considering a proposal) Having the policy jury make all of the party's policy decisions would be quite costly, and so delegation is necessary.  Below we discuss one idea for how to do so.  The Policy Jury is randomly divided into three 'sub-juries,' to which some decisions are delegated.  In addition, the Policy Jury elects ~5 Policy Advisors, which help refine proposals and make some of the smaller decisions themselves, subject to appeal.

Can also share perspectives and make counter-proposals when a jury is considering a proposal) When a policy is passed by one of these bodies it is given a priority.  Only the entire Policy Jury can assign policies the maximum priority of 5, ensuring that they maintain control over the primary policy-direction of the party.

If you have an idea for party-policy that you would like to propose, a simple $100 donation to the party gets you a certain amount of time to make your case to the Policy Advisors.  Free alternatives should exist, but generally these involve networking, so the option of paying $100 for a hearing is another path to help ensure good ideas get the consideration they deserve.

Appeal (~$1000) Decisions made by the Policy Advisors can be appealed to a sub-jury for a donation that covers the cost. If you don't like the Policy Advisors' decision (either whether to pass the proposal or the priority assigned to it), you can appeal to one of the Sub-Juries for a ~$1000 donation to the party (To cover costs).

Appeal (~$5000) Decisions made by a Sub-Jury can be appealed to the entire Jury (for a donation that covers the cost). Again, the Sub-Jury's decision can be appealed to the entire Policy Jury for a ~$5000 donation to the party.
In this example we discussed how to delegate much of the policy-making of the Citizens' Assembly Party to bodies other than the Policy Jury, subject ultimately to appeal to the Policy Jury*.  Similarly, most of the decisions about how the party is run internally could also be delegated to other bodies, subject ultimately to appeal to the Policy Jury. *I think it's important that there also be policy that is passed by members through a parallel process similar to that used in traditional parties.
