Learn to earn! Our goal is to schedule expert speakers frequently on topics of interest about Web Designers and Web Development. We seek to help members improve their skills in web based Graphic Design, SEO, CMS, Web Apps, GUI, Adobe Creative Suite, Flash (especially Flash) as well as other suggestions from the group. Afterwards, we plan to meet at a local bar and network our asses off.
