**Fellow .Net Users,
I gotta say, we've had a really good run of some great speakers with lots of different topics so far this year and this month's meeting will be no exception! Also, a big thanks to Jake Johnson for volunteering to be editor for our newsletter. We published our first volume last month and are planning the next release for November. This is a great resource that will give you the opportunity to get more involved in the user group without having to speak. Of course, if you're interested in speaking, we're certainly interested in talking to you. ;-) If you have an idea for an article or would like to share something you've learned recently, please contact Jake at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, this newsletter is for the entire OmahaMTG community so any Microsoft related topics are very welcome!
Our next .NET Users Group meeting will be held on Thursday, August 26th, at 6:00pm (food will be provided 15 to 20 minutes prior to the start of the meeting).

Call for Topics and Speakers
As a community-based user group, we encourage involvement from our members (whether it's presenting on a topic, providing topic suggestions, or supporting the group by attending the sessions). If you have a topic that you would like to present or learn more about during a future Omaha .NET Users Group meeting, please let me know. We are always in need of speakers and topics.
