List Organization Affiliation on the Advisory Board Page

Dear Fellow AB Members,

I see that on this page:

http://www.sascommunity.org/wiki/SasCommunity.org_Advisory_Board


…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.

Re: List Organization Affiliation on the Advisory Board Page

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.

Don,

Good idea... except: Where do I go to take part in the poll?!?!? I am clueless...

p.s.
I am clueless, but not helpless--before writing this I logged onto the CAB site and looked around, but did not find the poll... consequently, I need a pointer.

Thanks!

Don,

Never mind; I just found it... seconds before logging out.

Had to smile--as they say "if it had been a rattler, I'd be a dead man":-)

Did we ever decide anything on this? Like Mikeeeee I never found the poll on the CAB wiki. Like Mikeeeee I did eventually find it on the Forum. Odd what we do not see.

Art and Others,

I am going to ask Lainie to put this down as an agenda item for next week's meeting... which, though I am on vacation, I will be able to attend. <--Looking for brownie points here:-)

Have a great weekend/work-week all!

I am confident that your reward shall be great. When and from what source is another matter entirely.

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.
