Greetings Fellow Drupalers,

We have some great things planned for the upcoming meeting of the Nebraska Drupalers, and we're excited to share them with you.

As always, everyone in the Drupal community is welcome. Whether you're a Drupal pro, a beginner, or just interested in the CMS, everyone is invited to come hang out, talk shop, and eat pizza. (Free, of course.)

This month, we're pleased to tell you that Ben Finklea, CEO of Drupal-based marketing company "Volacci," will be giving a special Drupal presentation and open the floor for a Q&A session with everyone. (Visit www.volacci.com to find out more about Ben and his company.)

Ben Finklea, with help from Travis Carden, created the Drupal SEO checklist to help Drupalers optimize their sites for Drupal SEO best practices. (See https://drupal.org/project/seo_checklist for more information on this Drupal project.)

As always, we'll also have....
• Free food and drink
• Spotlight on Drupal-related news
• Open discussion of any cool projects you want to share.

We hope to see all the familiar faces of the community, and hopefully some new ones, as well. If you're not sure what Drupal is all about, feel free to come by and find out. All are welcome.
