Based on the feedback we’ve gotten via the Doodle poll, Wednesday, June 9 is pretty clearly the best date for everyone. I’ll send more info as we nail down the details, but I wanted to post this to make sure everyone had the date on their calendars. As always, please feel free to spread the word to any colleagues, and let me know if you have any questions.

There were a lot of favorable responses to the suggestion that we hold an all-day BAMUG meeting, and I think we can definitely generate enough content to fill a day with programming.
Since April and May tend to be insanely busy months all around, I’d like to propose June as a possible timeframe. I realize that summer presents its own share of problems, with conference travel, vacations, and server upgrades — but I do hope that there’s a good time for everyone.
I’d like to propose three possible dates. Please let me know which ones work best for you; although there may be no date that works for everyone, finding the one that the most people can commit to would be a great start. We will once again gladly host it here at Brandeis.
Wednesday, June 9
Thursday, June 17
Tuesday, June 29.
As with the all BAMUG meetings, this will be free, as we want schools to be able to send as many people as possible. And naturally, if anyone has something they’d like to present, please let us know! I do see us running this relatively like a Barcamp/unconference (is “MooCamp” a much sillier name than “Moodle Moot?”) , so it’s perfectly fine to decide to present or host a talk as late as the day of the meeting.
I’m looking forward to hearing from everyone. Please feel free, of course, to pass this along to anyone local using Moodle. As always, this information will be available on our blog, too (http://blogs.brandeis.edu/bamug/).
