Executive Board (three members at large): The Executive Board consists of the President. the President Elect (during the portion of the year that the office exists), the Vice Presidents, all former Presidents, and three elected members.
The formal role of the Executive Board is to set the agenda for meetings and make administrative decisions on proposals that need not go before the entire membership.
My name is Agenda Faromet, and I'm nominating myself for Executive Board. I have been active in Second Life since 2007, back when casinos and banks were still part of the SL landscape. I joined SLBA in 2009, and in 2010 I joined the SLBA Executive Board. While on the Executive Board, I built, scripted, and furnished the SLBA office building we use today, wrote the SLBA Guides to Creating a Professional Avatar, co-wrote (with Tim Faith) the SLBA Primer on Copyright and the DMCA, and co-organized (with Sam Courtois) many of the coffee chats we held in 2010-2011.
I am very active in the Second Life content creator / designer / blogger community, and as such, I am very cognizant of the concerns of SL's active users and content creators. Currently, I am experimenting with LL's new mesh rollout, and am looking forward to displaying examples of mesh to the SLBA at the September meeting.
