Meeting details:
January's kick-off meeting was great fun!  Many thanks to TEKSystems for providing the food and drinks.  In February, we get serious.  We have a number of agenda items to take care of.  First, formal elections for chapter treasurer, and president (unless you want to keep me on for another year) so we can began the process of moving to not for profit status.  Second, there are a couple of volunteer positions I would like to fill.  Thirdly, if we want to host a DataCamp, I need to put together a committee.  Finally, we will take a look at the R language and how to use it within SQL Server 2016.

Hope to see you there!.
