DGS_Mac_SIGTraditionally, this is our potpourri meeting. I will go over a couple of things we covered earlier that some people missed and have requested a refresher on: the Book creation report in Reunion 11 and Wall charts (which I will bring again).

You are welcome to introduce any topic or ask any questions.

Feel free to bring treats to share.

Although it looks like we will have decent weather, I’m going to also introduce GoToMeeting for two reasons: 1. if you can’t make it downtown, you can join us online and 2. we will be able to record the meeting and post it on the DGS website.
