February 2020 Meeting

Hello everyone I have taken over as the President of the INOTC. Much appreciation to Brian James for running the group for so long. I hope we can keep growing the group. We will have our meeting on 2/13/2020 at 630 pm. At this time, I do not have a guest speaker yet. So in this case, we will have an open discussion about what we want types of speakers we would like to have in 2020 and other things to improve the INOTC. We can also discuss any projects you have and give each other useful advice. One thing I do have on the "to-do" list is improve the website so it shows up better in online search results. This will hopefully be finished in the next few weeks. Thanks Scott Tarcy
