It is my view that the SL Bar Association is in a transitional phase. Over the past year, the level of interest in association participation has fallen off. Our mission, as a board, must be to continue our attempt to find ways to make the association more meaningful to its members. For my part, I have reached out to individuals and to host social activities on the theory that posssibly we can make progress in finding a collective direction through enhanced informal conversation. Second Life in general and the SL Bar Association in particular constitutes a superb platform for many professional benefits from networking to continuing legal education. I am anxious to continue lending my support toward that objective.
