Los Angeles ColdFusion User Group - Redux Part 1

- Categories: ColdFusion

For the past 3-4 years we have not had a regular ColdFusion User Group here in Los Angeles, which is terrible for such a large prominent city.  Leon Chalnick and Sid Sheres ran the local groups for a good number of years but then decided to retire from that after years of hard work.  Recently, Bill Nichols had tried to restart the group and after working hard at that, he is now moving out of LA.  So I am taking on the role of User Group Manager for the new Los Angeles ColdFusion User Group.

There is no doubt it will be a challenge, Los Angeles is just so spread out and snarled in traffic at rush hour so it is very hard to find the right place to hold UG meetings.  It astounded me one time when I was up in the DC area and I went to a User Group meeting held at Teratech and it was packed, at least 25-30 people and the speaker was not a Ben Forta; in recognition terms that is.

So I will be posting here as we progress in re-establishing the Los Angeles User Group.  ColdFusion and JRun have been very good for me and it is high time I try to return the favor. to the community

If there is anyone out there in the LA area who has some good thoughts-ideas please feel free to comment on this article.  Thanks

@ Daniel, thanks that is good of you and I know you have done your best to support the efforts of Bill Nichols which is much appreciated I am sure. The first key issue is to find a well situated place to meet so I am applying my brain to that. Then we have to present on compelling subject matter and if possible do that in the meeting place not just have people sitting in a room watching and/or listening to a remote presentation.

@Art thanks for the comment. Although I will be managing the effort there are actually 4 of us who will be helping/running things and we are all determined to make each meeting as interesting as possible with practical examples etc.

I can provide a venue in downtown LA with lots of free parking at night. Location is at South Los Angeles Street between 7th and 8th. I'll sponsor the meeting, cover all costs and provide food and beverages. Please contact me ASAP.

Silent partners are those people who have money but do not have time in terms of running a business. They invest capital in a particular venture without participating in the daily operations. Usually, silent partners lack industry expertise, leadership skills, and time to manage the real estate business of apartment complexes, restaurants, and hotels.
