I suggest a separate meeting perhaps weekly or
bi-weekly. I think once a month is too long
between meetings for consistency. I assert we
need a location that has access to the web -
wifi or ethernet, white board/chalkboard, no
charge for using the facility.

Any ideas? Does someone know of a company or
school that can/will accomodate?
