Hello everyone!

This year the Web Standards group will expand beyond monthly meetings.
While we'll still have the monthly meetings with a presenter, discussion,
and networking time, we'll also be adding brown bag meetings, happy hours,
and a blog.

Brown Bag meetings will be oriented toward delving into a topic in a smaller
group.  Think... less presentation, and more discussion.  Wendy Volkman and
Toni Prekker will be leading up these meetings, so expect to see emails
coming soon about brown bag meetings.

To help enhance networking in the group we've decided to add in one of the
best ways to network, happy hour!  Web Standards happy hours will start up
this summer.  Look for emails from Amanda Costello and Tony Thomas to give
more details on the when and where.

Lastly, the Web Standards site <http://www.webstandards.umn.edu/> will be
getting an overhaul.  Tony and Amanda will be updating it to include a blog
with articles on web topics.  From the basics of HTML and CSS to making the
best of Java Script, and beyond.
