When I was up at HighEdWebDev in 06, they had mentioned working on starting up a professional society kind of deal for university web developers. I didn't go to HighEdWebDev this year, and I'm wondering if anyone knows any news on that?
We are alive and kicking, we're incorporated, we've expanded the board, and we're starting to work on the membership definitions now. What would you (and everybody else) want in a professional association?

Also, a way to get in touch with one another. I find the roster of who attended HighEdWeb invaluable, even if I rarely go to it to find someone.
There are other things, but I've got to run to a meeting at the moment.
