We are planning a the next meetup with two speakers, refreshments (provided by Eclipsys) and some networking time at the downtown Oracle offices.

Please note that your contact information will:

1) be required to get into the building. When you arrive, you will have to present a government issued ID to security at the front door (your Ontario health card is not valid but your driver's license is). This requires that you register in advance and insure that we have all your contact info so it can be sent to security.

2) shared with our sponsors, Eclipsys and Oracle. Our sponsors have requested that you provide your corporate address and phone number. If you have not done this when you signed up, we will collect it when you arrive at the workshop. Remember this is free because the sponsors are covering our costs.
