      > Last week, the Scrum Alliance sent out a notice to our registered user groups requesting their agreement to terms of using the Scrum Alliance logo. This caused some confusion in the community, and we apologize. Our goal was not to make it more difficult for the community, but that is what happened.
      >
      > The response from the community was swift, passionate and is something that we cherish. We recognize that the community is one of our biggest assets, and we want to ensure that moving forward your voice is heard.
      >
      > To make that happen, we are making several changes as an organization:
      >
      > 1) We've emailed the affected user groups and informed them not to sign a licensing agreement. Instead we will post guidelines for those who wish to use a Scrum Alliance Scrum User Group logo.
      >
      > 2) We do want to provide, for groups who wish to use them, Scrum Alliance materials. This can include logos, forms, marketing materials and other elements. By the end of this week, we will post a draft of a set of guidelines to the Scrum Development list for how we'll ask groups to use the materials. The guidelines will then be posted on the Scrum Alliance website. We'll also be putting clear guidelines for how to get your group on the Scrum Alliance site, how to request materials and speakers, etc.

      > 3) We recognize that one benefit we can provide to the community is a common voice and a point of contact that the community can go to whenever questions arise, or concerns need to be heard. To help facilitate this, we've hired Cory Foy as a Community Liaison. I've tasked Cory to build a coalition of community leaders and to serve as that common point of contact for community events and user groups

      > 4) Finally, we want to make sure that the community understands that we want to serve you. There are several initiatives that we have undertaken as the Scrum Alliance to build and serve the Scrum Community that aren't always visible to the community as a whole. We're going to be working on ways to publicize what we are doing, and how you can get involved in these initiatives.

      > I personally want to thank all of you for the wonderful feedback, the constructive criticism, and the passion that you show for Scrum and the Scrum community. I hope that we can work to build and spread Scrum throughout your communities and all over the world. Thank you.
