Is this official?
What: First NYC Joomla Users Group Meeting
When: August 23, 2007
I suppose it is official as it gets based on the disorginzation involved.
August's dog days are here but relief is on the way. NYCBUG and New York PHP are excited to team up again for an informal New York Technical Community summer networking event.
Even if you're not a member of these groups, you're invited.
At 6:30pm on August 23rd, we'll be getting together on the roof-top lounge of The Delancey, in the Lower-East Side. The roof-top is a small piece of tropic serenity in Manhattan, with a relaxing fountain, lush plants, and a great view - and of course WiFi.
There is no need to RSVP and all are invited to attend. Just stop by 168 Delancey, between Clinton and Attorney, and head upstairs.
We hope you'll join us for this relaxing summer fling before Fall begins to fall.
Joomla Users: The New York PHP Community Joomla SIG will be having it's first meeting at this event. The meeting will serve as a way for people to meet, greet, and decide the future direction of the SIG. And most importantly, it'll be a great opportunity to finally meet the other Joomla users and share war stories.
We(as in I by fiat based on informed feedback from those interested enough to click a few mouse buttons) have decided on Thursdays for a monthly Joomla meeting.
We(as in I since I'm organizing it) have been offered office space at the NYPHP group to hold monthly meetings on Thursdays.
The only thing we(as in hopefully a GROUP of us) have to do now is decide what day of the month to meet.
This dovetails nicely with the NYPHP groups august get together on the 23rd, so they have been kind enough to invite all Joomla individuals to show up so we can meet and pick out a day.
We(as in back to me again) are soliciting feedback in the form of polls(thanks to Joomla and PollsXT) on what day is best for everyone, as well as what topics people would like to have presented at monthly meetings.
You can vote at my site, http://www.beezifies.com/polls_show_all/voting.html
Of the 9 people who have voted, the consensus so far is any week but the last week of the month.
Since our kick off meeting is the 23rd, my tendency is to NOT have it on the 1st week of the following month, but I am willing to be overruled if people actually come to the initial meeting and voice their opinions.
