Jump to navigation Jump to search


The board has been discussing the idea of getting people together for a face-to-face meeting to establish, and work on, priorities. A meetup / workshop needs clear goals. If we could set them, this could be a really useful occasion.

When and Where

June 11th and 12th at the Autodesk San Rafael offices.

This is just preceeding the Where 2.0 conference June 13/14 in San Jose which is relatively nearby. (According to Google, San Rafael to San Jose is 67 miles / 74 minutes.)


Board members and committee members of VisCom, WebCom and the Fundraising committees are encouraged to attend.

  • Frank Warmerdam will attend.
  • please add availability for other people


For a one- or two- day meeting there need to be clear goals identifiable.
