Announcements: July 13-16 Face-to-Face American Electric Power (AEP) Columbus, OH


July 13-16 Face-to-Face American Electric Power (AEP) Columbus, OH 


Members and interested parties of OpenSG and related activities:
Our next face-to-face meeting will be hosted by American Electric Power (AEP) in Columbus, OH from July 13-16.  The information below includes important information regarding registration, hotels, and driving directions for the meetings.
Attendees that do not register must be escorted into the facility which is time consuming and will delay entry considering the number of visitors.
Registration is FREE and will take only a moment of your time. Registration link:
Please register by end-of-business July 3, 2009.

We expect to have a teleconference / webconference available for those who cannot attend in person. We will push out that information to the listservs a couple days before the meeting. Warning: audio quality for discussions in the room beyond the presenter has been hit-and-miss in the past. The remedy for this is simple… come join us in person.
