"Share YOUR Point"
We are introducing a new feature at our quarterly meetings.   At the beginning of every BRSPUG meeting, we will have some time allotted for attendees to share their experiences before proceeding to the main event. “Share YOUR Point” could be an incident, problem, solution, technique or any surprise or excitement you have encountered while working with SharePoint that you would like to share with peers.  All the comments will be moderated and posted so that they are available on the internet.   
We’re inviting all attendees to contribute to this portion of our meeting.   Participation is first-come, first-serve, and we are only allowing three ‘Share YOUR Point’ speakers per meeting.   Each contributor will receive 5 minutes to speak and answer questions, and each will receive a ‘I Shared My Point’ t-shirt for their efforts.
