My first experience with INETA was back in 2008, when I started the planning for the Hampton Roads .NET Users Group. I think they are a wonder organization, who are a huge help to user groups across the country.
It was very surprising for me to have been asked last week to be an INETA mentor for the state of Virginia. Mentors are the liaisons for users groups to INETA, and their purpose is to give the user groups the tools they need to succeed. This is a position I take very seriously, as I think its a huge chance to give back to the community that has helped me so much over these past few years.
I’m hoping that over the next few months, I’ll be able to get around to all the user groups in Virginia and get to know better the people who run them. Is your group registered with INETA? If not, take a few seconds and register it today over at http://www.ineta.org. If you’re running a group already registered with INETA, expect an email from me within the week!
