Time Change for CMW Meetings

To All CMW Members:  Due to the need to close the Paramount by 9 PM and in order for the CMW meeting to be conducted in full, the meeting time will begin earlier and generally be conducted as follows:

* 6:00 PM – Arrival, sign-in and networking
* 6:20 PM – Meeting call to order
* 6:35 PM – Demo (or other scheduled activity)
* 8:40 PM – Demo concludes – meeting adjourns

This begins with the February, 2015 meeting and continues from this point on.

Thank you,
CMW
