As we fine-tuned our hybrid structure taking inputs from the community, IMA began forming its Advisory Board which will have both appointed (to advise core IMA working group committees) and elected (to advise subscriber and non-subscriber working group committees). We have been very fortunate to have such talented and engaged members of the Virtual Worlds community at large from within Open Simulator and outside of Open Simulator communities. We've held many meetings, asked and answered many questions, and were rewarded with great feedback and new ideas!
