Everyone is welcome to join us at our chapter meetings. Our inaugural chapter meeting will take place on January 11, 2012. I'm still looking into venues for the meeting but assme it will be somewhere downtown Peoria. Please send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be a speaker or would like us to focus on a certain topic. We'll plan on meeting every 2 months, alternating between Peoria and Bloomington locations to accomodate everyone equally.
