At Our Last Meeting
Our April meeting was a lot of fun. We learned about upcoming events in the Twin Cities, talked about the rate increases at Adobe. Our own Pete Ellingson put on a great demonstration of “How to Transfer Film to Video”. We got to see lots of cool, old footage including a very unique film of Ronald Reagan as the Emcee for the Rose Parade. Break time was particularly lively this time, with lots of private discussions on a wide range of topics. John Deyo did a demonstration of the software he uses to design websites and talked about the value of adding this service to your plate of offerings. We finished up with a short Show and Tell session. We weren’t able to squeeze in more discussion on rates/quotes, so we’ll continue that in May.
