About our User Group meetings

I had been schedule them one(up to two) month ahead of time but sometimes I’m force to do a last minute change because New Horizons location is not always open during the night.  So, our April 29th meeting needed to be moved to April 19th.  The good news is that I finally got New Horizons evening schedule for this year and it’s going to make it easy to coordinate our future events.

So, it’s my responsibility to prepare a nice schedule for our meeting with the next few weeks.

About User Group Member Benefits

1.       I will always try to have at the least some beverages and sometimes pizza will be available.  One thing that will help us is to receive some kind of donation so we can eventually have an annual event. But without your help, it won’t be possible.

2.       Swags giveaways: Books, devices, and CD’s evaluation.   This is only possible Thanks to our sponsors and I will try my best to keep bringing more for raffles during our activities.
