Message from the Chapter Board  
By James, VP Finance  business_conference4.jpg

Join us this Wednesday for our September monthly meeting where Trapper Little (Program Host, Colorado TechCast) and myself James Allison (VP Finance, IIBA Denver) will be picking up where we left off last October in North Denver with our discussion regarding Project Frameworks.  
Our discussion this time will be in DTC and on WebEx and is a great opportunity for those who were not able to make the previous presentation.  For those that attended last time please join us again for this popular discussion as we are looking this time from primarily an Agile perspective and adding some additional Agile Methods such as SAFe Agile (AKA Scaled Agile Framework) and drilling more into topics such as DevOps.  
The discussion will center on trying to employ the right Agile Methods and techniques for your environment and to share v ari ous experiences that our fellow BA's have encountered and/or have wondered about.  Please be sure to make it for the lively topic, discussions, and for food and drinks.
Volunteer Needed 
The chapter is also looking for a volunteer to run Webex during the chapter meetings. Talk to Linda Meserve if interested.
