Interest in Scrum Alliance Board Service

Scrum is undoubtedly the most recognized of the Agile frameworks. As a career software development professional, I am very interested in being a part of this collaborative, empirically based movement. 
My experiences with establishing robust strategic plans and supportive, meaningful leadership measures have been key in nonprofit revenue, membership, certification, and growth. This experience also taught me a considerable amount about which measures are important for nonprofit organizational effectiveness, as well as some of their unintended consequences.
