  • 1.  Follow-up from February 2 Ebooks Interest Group Meeting

    Posted Feb 19, 2021 05:34 PM

    Greetings everyone,

    Thanks to all for a fantastic first meeting in our new home in Core!

    Follow-up item #1
    The meeting recording is available for those of you who were unable to make it.

    Follow-up item #2
    I'm hoping to write up a bit of a summary of who and how many are interested in which ebook topics from your great introductions.​  If anybody else has time to get to that sooner than me, feel free.  Michael Blackwell and I are hoping to use that information to plan some of our next activities.

    Follow-up item #3 
    Stay tuned for information about our next meeting.  This first meeting was special, a one-hour session part of Core's Interest Group Week.  Typically we meet for a bit longer, and we should could have used more time for the great discussions we were having!

    Until we meet again, be well!
    Steve
