Some form of fundraising would be ideal, but I wasn't thinking of that
primarily. Although the idea of user groups fundraising isn't to put
the burden on the members pockets. I know with NYCBUG (.org), we are
able to raise some money, but figuring out how we can do it beyond
'passing the hat' around at meetings is a big question. Maybe it's
approaching BSD-using vendors. . . Not quite sure yet.
I was also thinking in terms of making commitments to surveys,
circulating the monthly newsletters, etc.
