Many of us in CA LUG have students in the Howard County Public School 
System (HCPSS). Those who do may have observed that CA LUG members would 
likely suggest different technology choices than those which are already 
being made for our kids. And undoubtedly some of you have excellent 
skills regarding how the decision making process for picking those 
technologies should proceed.

Now is the time for us to be heard, collectively.

Our next regular CA LUG meeting will be Wednesday, June 14, 2006 at 7:00 
PM. HCPSS will simultaneously be having a meeting we might want to 
attend instead (details below).

My suggestion: fork the June CA LUG meeting. Those with interest in the 
HCPSS meeting attend that meeting and speak with a collective voice. 
Interested persons should register to attend by calling 410.313.7011 or 
sending an email to denise_murphy at hcpss.org.

Those without interest in the HCPSS can meet as usual.
