Winchester, MA  The next DC Area Fedora User Group Meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 31 and Wednesday, April 1 at the USDA National Agriculture Library [1]. Please register in advance (registration is free) by completing this brief form: http://goo.gl/forms/kkUq7QTFos.

Tuesday, March 31 will feature presentations and project updates from attendees. When you register, please indicate your interest in delivering a long (15 minutes) or short (5 minutes) presentation. These community presentations and updates are the most important part of the meeting, and it would be great to hear from as many of you as possible. We will also leave room in the agenda for a roundtable discussion so anyone who does not want to do a presentation can still say a few words about what they are working on.
 
Wednesday, April 1 will be dedicated to a Fedora 4 training workshop, similar to the one held at the last DCFUG meeting [2]. This workshop will include updated content and hands-on sections. When you register for the workshop, please suggest any topics you are interested in learning about so we can incorporate this feedback into the agenda. Workshop attendance is limited, so please register early to reserve your seat.
 
We would like to provide snacks and refreshments for attendees again, so please get in touch with me if your institution would be willing to sponsor the event in this way. The cost is relatively low but I think everyone appreciates a cup of coffee in the morning.
 
Finally, if you are in the DC area and have not already joined the local Fedora community mailing list, please do so [3]. Events like this get planned and announced on that mailing list before being distributed more widely, so it is a good place to get relevant news and participate in event planning.
