My name is Lexis Looming, and I hereby nominate myself to serve another term as VP of Finance/CFO. I have been very active in the SL Bar Association for several years now. I (and several others) worked very hard to get our credential verification system in place. Since it has been up and running I have been the de facto Credentialing Committee. I have been on the executive board since 2008. Since 2009 I have been the VP Finance/CFO. During my tenure on the Board, we have created a mission statement and strategic plan; we incorporated and updated our by-laws; and we acquired our status as a 501(c)(6) tax exempt organization under United States federal law. That was a project on which I worked very hard for the SLBA. I have maintained our books and records current at all times and have provided current financial information at most of our board and general membership meetings and whenever requested. I have attended to my responsibilities with meticulous care. Every payment we receive or make has been documented with the Linden Labs transaction ID number in our books. During my tenure as VP Finance, I initiated the use of the avatar, SLBAAdministrator Clarity, who "owns" the group and keeps the membership rolls up to date, and I obtained written consent for a variance to the Terms of Service from Linden Labs for the SL Bar Association to share the password to this avatar to provide for continuity when there is a change of officers.
I would be very honored if you would consider voting for me to serve another term for the SL Bar Association as VP Finance/Chief Financial Officer.
