I draw your attention to a couple of events for your calendar:

First, the Plone East Coast Symposium at Penn State March 12 and 13:


This is being put on by PSU Weblion (#weblion on irc.freenode.net), 
which is a large group of Plone developers at Penn State. They would 
really like a big involvement from Higher Education at this symposium. 
They are really looking to do seriously Plone4Universities collaboration 
work with universities in the Triangle. Get your department on board.

If you need Plone training right away, you might look at the training 
days, March 10 and 11, connected with this symposium. There are three 
2-day training events before the symposia: Plone Skinning (what Veda 
taught in Naples), Plone Content Management (what Darci taught in 
Naples), and Plone 3 Techniques (taught by Joel Burton we are hosting 
here in August as a 3-day event if you'd rather wait until then).

BTW, don't forget we have two Plone Boot Camps coming back to UNC in 
August. We have a long lead time in notice for these this year. So there 
should be no reason not to get them on your calendar. Registration won't 
open until later. But you can plan your budgets now:


The other event you might want to pencil in on your calendar is the 
return of the Plone North American Symposium in New Orleans:


Enfold hosted the first Plone Conference in '03 and two Plone North 
American Symposia in '05 and '06 in New Orleans. I went to two out of 
three and they were great. The symposium in New Orleans this year is 
timed to coincide with the opening of the New Orleans Seafood Festival. 
In many ways, the Plone North American Symposium is every bit as good as 
the full International Plone Conference.
