Hi FV Drupalistas,

We will be officially scheduling our August group meetup and I'm trying to gather some new presenters for the night.

**** Short Version ****

* Can you do a site showcase for 10-15m? Need 2 volunteers.
* Have a module you want to show/talk about? Need 6-8 volunteers.
* Go fill this out: http://www.meetup.com/The-Fox-Valley-Drupal-Meetup-Group/polls/246673/


**** Long Version ****

Looking for some new faces at the front of the room! There are 2 specific areas that I'm looking for participation:

* Site Showcase
** We haven't done this for a while, and I think we all enjoy seeing the sites that we have built/are working on.
** I'm looking for 2 participators to give a 10-15m presentation of one of their sites. This typically involves an overview of the Drupal technologies utilized in the site build and how you solved unique requirements on the site. See some of the Drupal.org showcase posts (http://drupal.org/forum/25) for a general idea of how you might structure your brief presentation.
** I'll take the first 2, maybe 3, folks that volunteer

* Modules
** As you all know? 'there is a module for that'.
** Having just tested out a few new modules that I found helpful, I thought it would be fun if we lined up a bunch of 5m intros to modules you've recently discovered, love, or even that you can't find!
** These just need to be quick talks?here's the module, here's what it does (describe it better than its project page), here's how I use it, here are the issues I hit? Hopefully they generate a little back and forth with the group and may lead into the rest of our program for the evening?

* Breakout Sessions
** We've been following a lecture/presentation model for a while, and with the growing number of members with varied skill levels and interest we thought that some smaller, focused, breakout sessions might be helpful. So we're planning to plan a handful of breakout groups and then let others sort come together out of the first half of the night (think BOF sessions for you con and camp attendees).
** I've set up a poll just to get a general idea of needs, please take 1 minute and submit it: http://www.meetup.com/The-Fox-Valley-Drupal-Meetup-Group/polls/246673/


Remember folks? It's OUR group so if you have ideas at any point you can post theme here:
