Hey, I hope you all know about the three Plone Boot Camps we are hosting 
between July 30 and August 10:

There are currently 37 people signed up for the regular camp and 26 for 
the advanced camp. I see only a few of these sign-ups are local to the 
Triangle. So please go ahead and enroll now.

But what I really want to bring to your attention is the *one day 
Introduction to Plone*:

I know many of you would like to get Plone into your department or 
business. But you face difficulty in getting sufficient attention from 
your management about just what Plone is and why you should be using it. 
Or your five minute explanations create more questions than answers. 
Well, this one day introduction is what you are looking for. It's only 
$50 and it will take a totally non-technical decision maker and make the 
case for Plone for you *and* will train content creators for your Plone 
sites. Even if you already have Plone in your shop, you should get your 
boss and all the people in your organization whom you want creating 
content (office managers, administrative assistants, etc.) and get them 
into this one day course. Even though this course is only one day, and 
even though it's at the tail end of two weeks of training, and even 
though it's for non-technical people, this is probably the single most 
important day of the whole two weeks of Triangle Plone Boot Camps for 
this year. This is the *get Plone accepted in your enterprise* day. 
Getting non-technical people using Plone is what Plone is all about. As 
if you didn't have enough reason already:
