We've been unable to secure a speaker in time for the September meeting, so it has been canceled.  We will resume our normal meeting schedule on Wednesday, October 5 at 12 noon.

We're also seeking volunteers to help run, and present at, the Drupal User's Group.  It's only with the community's assistance that the group will continue to thrive.  If you're interested in helping run, in hosting, or in presenting, please email Kevin Nesline (remmell@umd.edu) and/or Megan Weng (sweng@umd.edu).
