ACM General Meeting Today!

Hey everyone,

Just a friendly reminder that our first general meeting for this semester is TONIGHT at 5:30pm in SEO 1000. There shall be pizza and we are going to cover general stuff for this coming semester. I would also like whatever SIG leaders who are present to give a quick update on what is going on with their SIG since the start of last semester. Also, if that ends quickly, I would like things to end a little early to save time at the end for questions/concerns or anything of that sort of nature.

The weekly update is as follows:

  • SIG Sysadmin 12/4/12 (Tuesday) at 5:15pm in ACM Office
