Pending topics to discuss

  • Lab training proposed by Glenn
    • Is there enough interest in BNUG membership to run one of these?
    • Where could we run this?
      • [steve-glenn]Should we see if MassBay can host this? (would need a classroom we can use & secure for two+ whole days); if acceptable I(steve) can check w/Tony.
      • (Could use Lexington Community Center but would need to give them % of profits and might have difficulty scheduling the event as they are a busy center!)
      • [glenn]Could Microsoft Burlington host this?
      • Other places?

Note
If you are an exec board member and you would like a login to make changes here, let me (Steve) know.
