Sudo room/Compact in a nutshell
Compact in a nutshell
"sudo room is an association of individuals (called "sudoers") established to collectively support a creative community and hacker space, with corresponding values" like openness, safespace, and do-ocracy.
To be a member you have to pay the monthly fee; but you don't have to be a member to participate. Necessarily some members are more member than others, there can always be a vote for: the facilitator, the scribe, and the exchequer.
Anything that sudo room owns, you can use. Plus we buy things together.
- Decisions, decisions
Quorum is 10 people. Financial decisions, and endorsements need consensus. Termination of a member is 2/3 vote, after a tribunal.
- Budget a la mode
Sudo room is a Voluntary Association seeking a suitable not-for-profit tax structure. Anyone can do the budget, which is open. The point of the budget is to reduce monthly fees, and issue internal credits (a soft dividend); but also to keep rainy-day money and no surplus.
Changes to the compact require consensus.
