The Southwest MO SQL Server Users Group meets the second Tuesday of each month at Associated Electric Cooperative, 2814 South Golden Ave, Springfield, MO 65807. See http://goo.gl/maps/xR0ZK for directions. The meetings are from 5:00 - 7:00 PM.
Anyone interested in SQL Server is invited to attend. The meeting will not only provide attendees an opportunity to learn from each other, but to also network with fellow SQL Server professionals. In addition, we will be giving away a variety of gifts (such as SQL Server books) after each meeting. If you don't attend, then you can't get a free gift. If you know of anyone who works with SQL Server, please invite them to attend.
If you would like to volunteer for this group, or like to help sponsor the group, please contact Anthony Young at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in must than just SQL Server, you may want to check out these two local IT groups.
The first is the local chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP). They meet over lunch once a month and everyone involved in IT is invited to join.
The second group is the Springfield MO .NET Users Group. They generally meet the fourth Tuesday of every month, and everyone who is involved with .NET is invited.
