The Second Life Bar Association will have its first large-scale organizational meeting on Wednesday, April 18th at 19:00 SLT (that’s 7:00 PM Pacific/8:00 Mountain/9:00 Central/10:00 Eastern).
We’ll be discussing several things, including officer elections, this year’s project agenda, and future meeting times.
Membership is open to all legal professionals and scholars, and is currently free. There will likely be dues imposed after this meeting, so join now if you haven’t already. To join, search “Groups” in Second Life for “Second Life Bar Association” (you’ll want to use the whole name, since the search feature is notoriously picky).
If you’d like to visit the offices, here’s a SLURL that will take your SL avatar directly there. There are frequently members hanging out there, and the conference room is open for anyone to use as a quick meeting place.
Finally, you can visit the SLBA’s web-based forums. Registration is required, but nothing more than an email address is necessary. Given how little I’ve been focusing on the SLBA over the last few months, I am surprised (and pleased) to see that there are several ongoing discussions. Jump in and help shape the future of the organization.
As is often the case with virtual organizations, scheduling meetings is an issue. Many of the SLBA’s United States based members have said that weeknights are by far the best time (which is why this one is scheduled when it is) but that, of course, means that it is held in the middle of the night for our European members. I apologize to our overseas members, and I’ll try to hammer out a better schedule, or find some other solution, before the next meeting. There’s a discussion thread in the forums on this, if you’d like to weigh in.
