Agenda

Agenda approved

Shopify move

Moved by Robert that OCLUG meet at Shopify offices, 126 York Street.

Discussion

  • Location: 126 York Street, half a block east of Dalhousie, in the Byward Market
  • People who have been there liked it
  • Letting people in the door may be an issue, but Shopify is planning to install an entrance call-box to make that easier
  • Parking should be OK, although the nearest parking is paid parking. Is there free parking after 5pm or 7pm in the area?

The motion passed unanimously.

Followup

Need to tell membership

  • Big notice on web site
  • notices on all mail lists we have
    • Some lists may not be active anymore and might be deleted. We have had the following lists (and reflectors):
      • Linux
      • Tech
      • Board
      • Board members
      • Photo SIG
      • Sysadmin
      • Events (used by committees organizing events)
      • Announce
  • We will repeat notices on our active “Tech” list (maybe for the next several meetings?)
  • Contact Algonquin - Robert will contact Richard Hagemeyer about our move, and ask about the possibility of creating a student group with involvement from OCLUG members

Committee Status Reports

Open Source Festival

  • Name change to “User Group Connect”
    • Robert and Scott checked this on the web.
      • Several companies “Connect” with the their “User Groups”, so that “User Group Connect” appears on their web site, but they don't seem to use this particular phrase as a trademark.
      • “Adobe Connect User Groups”
      • “Social Connections, the IBM Connections User Group”
      • We decided that our phrase is unique to our group .
  • The committee has decided to go ahead with Oct 20, and to ask Shopify for use of their space
  • We expect to have better response from clubs with a firm date and location
  • We currently have 3 sponsoring groups very interested and 3 groups committed to having a table and staffing it
