I started the Triad SQL Server User Group with several other folks back in 2002. I led the chapter for 2 years before turning the reigns over to a Board of Directors. I have only been to one or two meetings since the turnover mainly because I have been out of town when they have meetings. But last night, I was in town and the Holiday Social was just 2 miles away from my house at a local drinking/dining establishment.
It was good to see the Board of Directors and meet some of the regulars who now attend. I was so happy to see that the group has really grown over the past few years in its sophistication, marketing, and breadth of topics. I wanted to acknowledge and praise the team that is now the Board of Directors - Miguel Cebollero, Michael Wharton, and Karen Lennon.
