…the Advisory Board members are all listed, which is just and proper. However, I do not see anybody’s company affiliation listed. I think this is a mistake. My own company “happily” allows me to donate my time during work hours to participate in SASCommmunity activities. I am sure that other people have the same amount of support. I think it is a small thing to list each person’s affiliation. If you did, then I would send the link to my boss; without it, I wouldn't. Other people may be in the same situation.
Again; think of motivation. Consultants, company men, university staff, or whatever on the AB should have their company affiliation listed to help justify their—away from the paying job—efforts to those they report to. It’s good advertising, and perhaps some of the companies will list that the staff member is a member of the SASCommunity AB in proposals or whatever, driving other people to the site.

Best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!

I created a poll to get a sense of the members opinions. I thought this would be a good way to evaluate polls. Note that I believe you can only vote once. There is no discussion and you can't see who voted or how. So it might only be good to get a sense of the direction. This might dovetail nice with having a link to a wiki page for the details.
I will count on brownies next time I am in Cary. - please do not bake them now as it will be awhile (at best) before I get back there again - although it might be worth the trip for the brownies alone.
