Protocol

  • Plan is to only meet during official sudo room meetings, simply requiring that we have board members show up (enough for quorum).
  • No need to meet separately, unless a particular circumstance requires it.
  • Get things done but keep things interesting through movement, art and entertainment like meeting nude at Korean bathhouses in San Leandro
