April 2009

Dear User Group members,

April seems to be slipping right on by rather quickly. But before it becomes
a memory, let's remind you about some major events still to come this month.

At the upcoming NAB Show in Vegas, many of our top digital video authors
will be doing book signings at the official bookstore. For a listing of
authors and scheduled times, follow the link in the Upcoming Conferences
section below.

Of course we're most excited about our Voices That Matter: Web Design
Conference taking place the last week of the month in San Fran. We're
offering a special economic stimulus package, so check out the details
below!
