The year is off and running, and we should be too. We are a little late on our planning this fall, but not too late to miss the date for our opening member meeting. There are two meetings we have coming up that I wanted to let you know about.
Our first MEMBER event: User-Group get-together
When: Saturday, October 4, 2008 from 4pm to 6pm.
Where: Valley of the Moon Winery
We are taking a new direction this year with our local events and are going to try a user-group meeting. This meeting will be a chance to learn, share, network, and enjoy some food and drinks. It will be structured but a bit more informal than previous events we have held. We are meeting in Sonoma to accommodate both Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley members. This should be a great event, so mark your calendars now.
Our planning meeting
When: September 22, 2008 5:30 to 7:00
Where: Mary’s Pizza in Sonoma (Boyes Hot Springs) The Backroom!
This meeting will be a board/member planning meeting. The goal is to plan and work out the details on the October 4 meeting. All members are invited to participate. As a member-run organization, the more people that pitch in, the better we are. Join us on Monday to help make this coming year a success. We will be meeting at Mary’s Pizza in Sonoma (Boyes Hot Springs area). We have reserved their back room. Everyone will be purchasing their own food. If you just want to participate in the meeting but don’t want to eat, that is fine too. Here is a link for directions to this restaurant: http://www.maryspizzashack.com/directions.do?str=18636%20Sonoma%20Highway&ct=Sonoma&st=CA&z=95476-4418&ll=38.30802,-122.478432&zm=15#
If possible, RSVP to Barbara Linch (firstname.lastname@example.org) whether you are coming or not. We want to be prepared with materials for anyone who join us. You can also check our website for information and agendas for both meetings as they are posted. The agenda for the October 4 meeting will not be posted until after the September 22 meeting.
We hope to see you next week. Jason
