Check Out

Check Out requires that your physical presence always signifies your engagement. You must check out when you are aware that you cannot maintain the Core Commitments or whenever it would be better for you to be elsewhere.


  1. Say “I’m checking out.”
  2. Physically leave the group until you’re ready to check in once again.
  3. Optionally, if it is known and relevant, you can say when you believe you’ll return.
  4. Those who are present for the check-out may not follow the person, talk to or about the person checking out, or otherwise chase him or her.
