West Coast Regional Group Meeting

The next West Coast Regional Group Meeting will be on May 23, 2019 at Geisel Library at UC San Diego.

Anyone near the West Coast who is interested or invested in Samvera is invited to attend, including implementers, developers, and interested onlookers.

We'll be collaboratively building the agenda based on attendee interest with a combination of presentations and unconference style conversations.

>> Register with Eventbrite << 

Morning coffee and snacks, lunch, and afternoon coffee will be provided.  There is a $20 registration fee to help offset food costs. 

Discussion Topics

If you are planning on attending, share your ideas about what you would like to talk about, hear about, or show!

Questions About the Process
Q: If I share an idea does that mean I have to present on it or lead a discussion?
A: Nope!

Q: What if I want to, or am willing to, give a lightening talk/demo or lead a discussion?
A: Awesome!  Mention it when you share the idea or let us know via slack or email.

Q: What happens next?
A: Ideas will be open for others to add to and express interest in, when we have enough suggestions, we'll do some clustering to identify session themes, let people who volunteered for lightening talks/demo's know so they have some time to prepare, and start beefing up the agenda.
