Members of SAABO recognize the following goals in order to advance the mission:

  • Review the Protocol annually and recommend revisions as needed.

  • Identify action items or introduce subject matter that will aid implementation of the Protocol.
  • Identify and propose resolutions for Protocol complaints and concerns.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of the Protocol.
