I've been nominated for the Board of Directors of the Agile Alliance, an international community that "supports those who explore and apply Agile principles and practices to make the software industry productive, humane, and sustainable". If you're a member of the Agile Alliance, please vote for me. If you're not a member but are a proponent of Agile software development, become one by joining now. Improving is a corporate member and a sponsor of the Agile 2008 Conference. We're also a strong supporter of the Dallas chapter of the Agile Project Leadership Network.
