Cross posting my blog post from a.d.o.

Do you organize meetings, camps, or sprints?

Come join myself and rocking community organizer Doug Vann for the Drupal Community Leader meetup at DrupalCon Denver. In this two hour meeting and roundtable discussion we'll bring together our organizing powers to spread the power of the Drupal community throughout the world.

What can you expect?

Connect with other community organizers to exchange ideas, join forces, and collaborate on growing your local community group. Discussion will include how to collaborate with other organizers and how the Drupal Association can be used as a force to further camps, meetups, introduce Drupal Days and collaborate together to enhance the toolset available to community organizers and leaders. 

Add this to your schedule at DrupalCon Denver: Let's see what we can build together!

Ooops. Donna's link is correct, it simply fails when it is truncated in the email notification from GDO.
So if you want to see the DOC you have to follow the link from the GDO page NOT the email notification.
