I’ve got the Users Group up and running in Columbus GA (http://columbusga.sqlpass.org). Our first meeting was a big success. I was expecting about 12 people and over 40 people showed up. You can read about the first meeting on the SQL Pass website (Here).
Here is the info for the next meeting. If you are in the area feel free to attend. I have booked a bigger room this time that holds 70 people, since the other room was only supposed to hold 35. Also, send me an email if you are interested in speaking or sponsoring on of the upcoming meetings.
