else involved!) have been making to the LoCo Directory. Some of the
highlighted changes are as follow: events will now be displayed in local
time for the venue, and you will have the ability to disable

you would prefer to have people register (facebook, meetup, et al.)



I hope that everyone had a great Holiday, We've had a couple of new
people join the team on Launchpad. Welcome aboard on behalf of the team!
