In planning for future Cisco User Group meetings, I have put together a list of questions to help me organize the group. Please take some time to answer the questions below to help me in planning location, time, and topics for future meetings.
I have received some feedback that the group is spending too much time on introductions, but I feel it?s important to understand everyone background so presentations and labs are appropriate for the audience. Another area of concern is the skill level differences between members of the group, so understanding everyone Cisco experience will be helpful. In order to make these meetings useful for all attending, I will correlate the responses to these questions and review them with the group at our next meeting on April 14th.
Personal and Background Information ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ * Name * What city do you live in? * Employer * Employer Location * Current Position * Cisco work experience (years) * Highest Level of Cisco Certification * Cisco Certification currently being pursued * What are you hoping to gain from this group?
Group Preferences ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ * How often would you like to meet? * Currently meetings are held downtown, in the loop. If we met once a month, what is the earliest you could attend? * How long would you like meetings to be? * What topics would you like to cover? * Are you willing to present a topic, if so what?
Again, thanks for taking the time to answer these questions and I hope to see you on Tuesday April 14th at 6:30pm for the next meeting.
