[Ubuntu-US-CA] LoCo Approval

I may be able to attend if a weekly exec meeting doesn't last too long.

One thing I'd like to hear about is what organization the California
Team/LoCo has/will have.

I.e., what is the management structure? are there elections? how are
these run and when? how are conflicts resolved? etc.

It doesn't look like the Ubuntu community documentation provides much
guidance with this, but I think it would be nice to have something a bit
more formal than anarchy.
