Get set.  Get ready. Go!

SEPG North America, the greatest show on earth for process geeks, is coming soon to Portland, OR.  Held during the 3rd week in March, SEPG is four non-stop days of CMMI, Process, case studies, consultants, clients, parties, dinners, bars, drinking, cigar-smoking (just me and my buddy Dave) and just plain outright fun!
