I'm too new to know but.... what would the Board hope to achieve at these
sessions?  To me, an ideal Board would work by creating consensus for an
initiative among the people who are needed to do any work to make the idea
a reality... that portion of the Board's work would be better done in
non-Board-oriented FADs.  Laying out at a high level what the Board wants to
see accomplished might be one thing that could happen at a FAD.  But is that
any better accomplished in person than via email/phone/IRC?  If we're
exploring an idea in depth, I can see that being the case.. but perhaps we
should decide that we need to meet in person on those on a case-by-case
basis just like any other FAD?

Once again, I'm new here, so I don't know whether the Board would benefit
from a recurring in-person meeting, I just don't have a clear idea of what
we'd want to achieve by meeting.
