Q1 Meeting Recap

20 - Arcturus
20 - Arcturus



What terrific support and attendance we had.  For anyone who missed the meeting, it turns out that having a “Detroit” User Group meeting in Detroit gets more Detroit users to attend.  For our next meeting, we’ll set our Q2 meeting up in July and hopefully it will be at a Ford training room with the capacity for more attendees.  So while I watch the snow falling outside of my window, I’ll recap for those in attendance and give insights to what may have been missed.


  1. Meet & Greet:   Let’s shuffle the seats.  It seems like a mixer might be in order.
