    sorry, will miss it.. conflicted that eve. is there any way to get 2-3 weeks notice?

    July 15, 2013

    • Jonathan L.

      Hi Paul, typically we give several weeks notice (if not even a full month). Be sure to check that you have emails from this meetup group turned on so that you're up to date on future events.

    Enterprise software costs a lot because sales take so long. I am wondering if we will hear about ways to optimize this for both sides.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
