Topic:  Back to the Basics: Making the Most of WSS v3

Please join us on Wednesday, January 14, for an engaging discussion on Windows SharePoint Services v3.
With the current economic landscape, companies are concerned about how they invest their money and how to get the most out of what they've already invested in.  With this in mind, we'd like to focus this month on the SharePoint tools and products that are available to everyone with Windows Server
• Search Server Express
• SQL Express
• Fab 40 templates
We'll review the core functionally of Windows SharePoint Services (WSS v3): what functionality does it offer and how can it be used.  What can organizations and users expect to get out of the functionality provided by WSS and other tools available before investing in MOSS?  February's session will build off of this one and turn our focus to 'Making the most of MOSS'.
Some of the topics we'll be covering in January include:
• Site templates
• List templates
• List Views
• Tips and Tricks
• and more....
• This month's session will be targeted to SharePoint entry-level and power users.
