I think it can sometimes be a difficult task to choose how leadership
is set up in a LoCo team, perhaps it would be nice to list the types
of LoCo leadership styles that's been used by other teams and list the
pros and cons of each type and recommended size for each type. It
would probably not be ideal to set up a council if your loco team only
exists out of 5 members, or have a single leader for a LoCo team that
covers several states/provinces with thousands of members.

(sorry if this detracts a but from the contacts topic)
