ZPUGDC January Meeting!

From: Alex C.
Sent on: Tuesday, January 6, 2009 1:49 PM
Hi all and Happy New Year!

A wise man (Joel Burton) once organized monthly meetings for ZPUGDC by
alternating between Zope and Python-related topics. When I took over,
I abandoned that approach, but now it's back! This year, we will
adhere (loosely) to the following schedule:­

Or if you prefer 


We had a Plone talk scheduled for tonight, but that has been postponed to
March; tonight will be a "free for all" featuring the usual "around the room"
discussion of your favorite Python-related technology, and whatever
else people want to talk about and/or present on. Bring yourself and your 
ideas :-)­

Other Important News of Note:

In June of 2008, the Zope-Python User's Group of D.C. was made
"official". I incorporated the organization as: ZPUGDC INC.; a legal,
non-profit, non-stock, tax-exempt (though we intend to, we have not
yet applied for 501 c3 Federal status) corporate entity in the state
of Maryland. The mission of ZPUGDC, INC. is to maintain and uphold the
original mission of ZPUGDC which is as follows:

"The Zope/Python Users Group of DC exists to promote and serve the
user and developer communities of Python, Zope, and Plone in the
Washington, DC and surrounding areas."

The Current ZPUGDC, INC. Board consists of three (3) Members:

Executive Director & President - Alex Clark
Vice President - Matt Bowen
Secretary/Treasurer - Amy Clark

The ZPUGDC, INC. ByLaws provide for up to five (5) Board Members. We
are seeking to add two (2) more people in 2009 and are currently
accepting "applications" from anyone interesting in participating in
ZPUGDC at that level.

We intend to continue our "business as usual" events and services, as
well as to add a few new ones including (but not limited to): holding
and hosting meetings and networking events; offering bootcamps and
development sprints; manage, provide and maintain mailing lists; as
well as holding symposiums and conferences in the DC area.

More information about ZPUGDC, INC. will be available soon, including:

    - Notable 2009 events
    - How you can participate, attend, or help grown and strengthen this
        organization along with the community it serves.

Please feel free to ask any questions or offer comments. We welcome
your participation and look forward to a prosperous New Year!
