Are you running a small business (or would you like to)? Do you occasionally do IT Professional work outside your regular job? Do you assist clients with their business needs? This Meetup may be for you. Two presenters will be talking about various cloud accounting software and how you can make the most use of them. It's cold outside but we'll have food and drinks available in additional to some cool prizes.

Please RSVP by Tuesday evening if at all possible, however RSVP's are open until 3pm on Wednesday the 7th. Welcome time is at 6pm, and we'll begin closer to 6:30pm.
