2010 GANG Goals Get members more engaged and involved Increase meeting attendance by 50% Increase supporting membership by 30% Continue to attract high-quality speakers Increase sponsorship by 100% Finish year in the black financially
Membership Drive January – June 2010 1 Entry for each meeting attended 1 Entry for each new guest you bring* Grand prize drawing at June meeting Grand Prize: Zune HD * A new guest is someone who has not attended a GANG meeting in the previous 12 months
Membership Drive Fine Print At each meeting, be sure the GANG Secretary has recorded your attendance, your e-mail address and the names and e-mail addresses of any new guests you bring. For each meeting you attend (January-June 2010) you will receive an entry into a drawing. For each new guest you bring to a meeting, you will receive an additional entry. A new guest is one who has not attended a meeting in at least 12 months. A new guest may be considered a guest of at most one member. Once a guest has attended a meeting they are no longer considered new; However, they may increase their own odds of winning by attending more meetings and bringing new guests of their own. No circular references allowed (aka, two new people can’t show up together and put that they were each referred by the other). A drawing will be held at the June meeting. The winner will receive a Zune HD, courtesy of Microsoft. You must be present at the June meeting in order to win.

This is an informal meetup of people interested in learning from one another. Bring your laptop and pair up with someone to work on an open source project, learn a new technique, or even dabble in a new language. There is no agenda or specific topic, just a time set aside for people to pair.” Source: http://mvwood.com/blog/bitslingers-4-6-2009/ TinyUrl.com/Codeslingers
