Last month, the gauntlet was thrown: Eugene announced their first Plone Users Group meeting. Well, we Portlanders won't be left out -- we are inviting anyone who is interested in learning, discussing, and sharing around Plone (the best Open Source content management system, http://plone.org) to the first Portland-based Plone Users Group meeting. We hope that this initial meeting will kick start a group that meets monthly to help new developers and consultants get started, to facilitate the transfer of knowledge among veterans, and to encourage networking and collaboration. Most important, this first meeting will include snacks!
What: Portland Plone Users Group Meeting
When: May 9, 2005, 5:00p - 6:30p
Where: TACS Conference Room, 1001 SE Water Ave, Suite 490, Portland, Oregon

We're unsure about how many people to expect, so please let us know if you're planning on coming by emailing Darci (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jon (email@example.com). Can't make it to this first meeting? Want be notified of future Portland area Plone events? Then sign up for our announcement list.
We look forward to seeing you; please, pass this along to others that you think would be interested!
Your Plonista Conspirators,
Jon Baldivieso and Darci Hanning
