December 13th Meeting ~ Condusiv Software plus Board Elections

Our next Technology Wizards meeting will be Wednesday, December 13th, 12:00pm – 3:00pm at the Microsoft PacWest office located at 1414 Northrup (in the Pearl district).

Technology Wizards Board Elections

We will begin our monthly Technology Wizards meeting on Wednesday with our annual Board Elections.  We will be electing the 5 members who will serve on the Board beginning in January 2017.  Only current members present in the room will be allowed to participate in the elections.

According to our Bylaws, annually the membership selects the 5 people who will serve on the Board from Jan – Dec.  At the January Board Meeting, the 5 people elected then hold an election to determine what positions within the Board they will each fill for the year.  Our Bylaws further stipulate that the President must have served on the Board the previous year.

After we have concluded our Board Elections, we’ll move on to our featured discussions and presentation.
