We are returning to one of our original locations and this month are back at Sector. Please be sure to share this event with others http://www.meetup.com/vsharepoint.
I hope you come join us.
• 11:30 to 12:00 – Meet and Greet and grab a slice of pizza or two
• 12:00 to 1:00 – Kevin Dube, Records Management Presentation
• 1:00 to 1:15 – Monk Interactive Whiteboard Vendor Demo. Get to know/see the new ActivBoard 500 Pro
• 1:15 to 2:00 – Sean Wallbridge, Leading an open Q&A SharePoint Discussion
For the last session (Q&A), this is based on recent feedback that many folks want to just “talk SharePoint”. The idea is an opportunity to ask questions of the other folks in the room. It is a collaborative session and will occupy whatever remaining time is left after the other presentations / lunch.
As always we have some great give away's. This month it sounds like a Lenovo Tablet will be on our list (waiting on this details).. . That’s right… we may be playing heads or tails for a Lenovo Tablet.
