“Teach Yourself How to Teach Yourself” – January Meeting

So you want to fix your sink, or learn to play guitar?  Perhaps you want to learn how to cook a great meal?  The only problem is that you just don’t know what you’re doing, and you don’t have a whole lot of money to hire a pro to teach you what you need to know.  Join John Fauver, one of LAMALUG’s “Geeks” and owner of Fortissimo Computing, as he shows us how to learn how to do just about anything (legal) with on-line tutorials.

Members can “Ask-A-Geek” from 6:00 PM until the start of the meeting at 6:30 PM.  Be sure to join us at the East Lansing Pizza House (located in the Hannah Plaza on South Hagadorn Road for our afterglow following the meeting.

Something New:

This month we’re trying something new for those of you who visit this page before the meeting.  We’ve uploaded our meeting as an event at EventBrite.  If you would be so kind as to register for the meeting with them, we want to see if it will help our check-in process at the meeting.  We’ll be doing this for a couple months this winter to get a better feel for the process, both for you as a user/member, and for us as the ones who have to make the meetings happen.

Here’s the link to register: http://lamalug-jan2011.eventbrite.com. Thanks in advance.

Officer Elections:

At the beginning of the meeting, LAMALUG will hold elections for the new Board of Directors.  Nominations were opened at the December 2010 meeting, and will close as the election begins.  The current slate of Officers is here, and the nominated list is here. (The list of nominations will be removed after the election.)  After the election, the new Board of Directors will be posted.
