May 2009, BNC IT Networking Luncheon

Please join us for the next gathering of the BNC IT Group.  We are going to a NEW RESTAURANT.  Weber Grill has a new chef.  He has his own requirements for groups like us, so we are trying a new place.  I hear the food is great at Buca di Beppo and much more than you can eat.

Our speaker this month will be Jean Pickering from The Tektite Group, LLC.  Following our recent direction of exploring Social Media, Jean will do an overview of Wikis.  This will be a part of a workshop on How to Economically Set Up and Maintain Your Own Website which Jean will be doing in early June.

Last month, participants arrived early so that they would have time to network with people before the official program begins.  It seemed to work out pretty well so again if you arrive by 11:45am, you will have time to network with those people at your first table.  The food will be served by Noon and the program will begin shortly after Noon.

Once the official program begins, we will follow our usual format: no “sales speeches”. The first 30 minutes will be used for the presentation, eating and very limited networking at the first table.  The next 60 minutes is used for speed networking (switching tables every 15 minutes).

The food will be served “family style”.  At our first seating we will have the first 2 courses (salad & pasta).  At the second table, we are getting the 3rd course, cookies so the price is going up slightly to cover the cost of the additional courses.

No Walk Ins.  You must RSVP on line to attend.  When you sign-up, you will be charged a fee of $35.00 which covers the cost of your meal (salad, pasta, meat course & desert), a soft drink or tea/coffee and tax & tip.  After you sign-up, you will receive an email confirming your RSVP.  IF you do not get one, PLEASE notify me immediately.

Last month we sold out a week in advance and had 5 people on the wait list even after expanding the maximum number of attendees.  We will sell out so make your reservation early.  Once we have filled all seats, you will need to contact me to have your name placed on the wait list.

I must turn in the final number at 4pm on 5/15, so no RSVPs or cancellations will be accepted after that date & time.  NOTE: This has been extended to 9am on 5/19, but you will need to pay the late fee price.

See you there,
