Group Charter

The primary goal of this group is to allow software developers in the Portland area to share ideas, promote collaboration, and exchange knowledge regarding Microsoft's development technologies.

Anyone is welcome to join the user group at any time during the year, although the user group reserves the right to revoke any membership at any time.

Regular meetings are held throughout the year. At this time, the normal meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month.
