User group meeting

On May 18th, Government Drupalers in North America will be chillin for good drupaly awesomeness at the Department of Commerce.

It's an all day event and the event is now open for partnerships as well as session proposals. YEAH!!


Thanks to the work of our friends across the Atlantic who pulled together the first Drupal Government Days event last year, we're building on their success and putting on a North American version this year!

We will have clowns, and roller coasters and cotton candy. Okay, no, we wont, but we will have drupaly goodness that we all love! So, get your session proposals in, but don't forget, you gotta register first and confirm your attendance, then, make those proposals!!

We are accepting session proposals now, but let me also take this time to announce a fabulous ROOM, yes, ROOM. We will have an all day dedicated SECURITY room. The fabulous, awesome and arguably the foremost experts for Drupal in Government Jason Ingalls, Greg “Greggles” Knaddison, and Mike Lemire are working together now to develop a plan for the Security Room to make this an event to remember! http://www.drupalgovdays.org/news/2012/04/10/security-s-word

We are currently being sponsored by Trellon and have Phase 2 and Acquia helping with all the planning and today, we've confirmed the partnership of AFGE. Yep, the American Federation of Government Employees will be helping at registration and helping to sponsor the event. All we need to do now, is add your company as a partner!

Case studies, sessions, Security Room and who knows what else? Well, you won't know, not unless you can make it. So, register to attend today! We'd love to have you!

Would sure like some more sessions on technical topics, maybe Features, Contexts, mapping, Views (who can't use more Views?), OG or how about a session on contributing to Core?

We have 4 rooms to schedule and a wide assortment of topics would be fantastic!

And the Security Room is shaping up to be killer!!

I'm so excited, I can't wait!!

Just a minor kind of drupal geeky girl and for the US government no less!
