This is Donald Geldernick appealing to all oour ETCmembers involved with collaborative communication (IBM talk for social media).  I am a long-time dormant member of the User Group called Granite ... originally just for Lotus NOTES and Domino junkies ... now, it includes all forms of IBM social media and collaboration tools.  This group now meets quarterly and just changed to alternating from Chicago to Schaumburg sites.  It gets a very good attendance and has at least 4 or 5 presentations.
It is all day long and includes lunch.  Used to have a $5 fee, looks like that is not applicable.  Parking is free.  Parking is free and it is in the IBM Schaumburg officesjust south of Woodfield and near the Zurich Insurance offices on Martingale Drive.

I would like to see at least 10 or 15 people from or related to ETC attend.  You can bring a friend, acustomer or a marketing person or somebody who would like to bust into this market.  Students graduating from college would also be good prospects.   Lunch isusually included and is always good food.

I think we can cross-germinate and get somebody from this group to present to our ETC Elgin think tank and maybe get some more members and companies.

Also please send me your name, company, and guests/company if you plan to attend as my guest.

    I would have loved to participate to this event for more than one reason. I also have my own office at 10 N. Martingale Road, Schaumburg, IL and I would love to know a little bit more about this IBM's site. Unfortunately I am not available on Monday, the entire day. I hope I will have a chance to attend another IBM meetup event in the future.
