I've had an ever growing number of ArcGIS users asking about QGIS in the 
SE TN/NE Georgia Area - So I figured I'd give this a shot. Most seem to 
have it installed but are a bit lost (BUT - we do have some using it for 
day to day GIS work). So I think this might be a good way to spread the 
word and at least get them functional and not scared of asking questions 
on the User list.

Thanks for reminding me of the books and Community Health - so I'll 
throw that in also to show what is happening. Actually - that reminds me 
of the Carto book that also came out.

I'll try to fire off an update post meeting with attendance and plans 
for moving this forward.
