Copying "balug-admin" in on this message.

It doesn't look like this event has any Linux or F/OSS content so I would
not be in favor of BALUG announcing or endorsing the event.

Subject: Meeting with the Small Business Administration !!
Importance: High


I'm hosting a meeting with recruiters and the Small Business
(www.sba.org) for next Tuesday - June 17th.

Evite URL: http://www.evite.com/app/publicUrl/CWWBHDBITKJETMBMOIQE/sba

I would like for you to attend this meeting - so that we can chat about
perhaps having a similar meeting with the Linux LUG Heads in about 30-60
days.  Folks can learn about getting small business loans - and actually
talk with a lender (no matter what the credit score) - and could be
instrumental in helping some folks out !!!

I know that the BALUG meeting is the 3rd Tuesday of the month -any chance
we could join these two meetings together... Or have one on the first
floor - the other event on the 2nd... Having both groups meet up with the
SBA before head... (just a thought !)

This can be VERY helpful information to independent contractors - and
people who might to entertain starting a small business - providing Linux
tech support, sales, etc.

Give me a call = and we can discuss.

I am also DESPERATELY trying to find a candidate for this SENIOR LINUX
SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR (see job description)...  Any attention to you can
get this position - would certainly be GREATLY APPRECIATED !!

Hope to see you at this SBA meeting - and lets start making plans for one
with the SBA and the local Linux Groups - sometime in the VERY near

It's all about "community!" - especially during these very difficult
economic times. !!

Keep in touch - and I'll do the same.
