We're an 'organization'? Where is my monthly newsletter?....;)
We should also pick our treasurer with some care. It is the prime target for
law enforcement since it provides them access to the money records.

In general I have to agree with Adam though, in the real world with
ubiquitous and surreptitious monitoring signing documents is actualy a
liability in many if not most cases. About the only exception is dealing
with a contractual relationship.
