NCTech4Good usually has presentations and discussions at its monthly meetings and a social in December. We decided to have a spring social in March because our usual meeting room was not available and we wanted to promote our upcoming conference (June 6-7 in Chapel Hill, NC -- nctech4good.org). We had a great turnout, more than most of our meetings, and lots of new people and good conversations. There was a lot of interaction on the Meetup site too, more than we've had for any of our meetings -- http://www.meetup.com/NCTech4Good/events/99441192/ We had flyers promoting the conference and it sounds like many of the new folks will attend. A successful evening all around!
