    INTRODUCTION:
    -------------

    Unigroup wishes you a Happy New Year 2016!

    ** For January 2016, Unigroup's meeting is happening ONE WEEK
    EARLIER than normal (on the 2nd Thursday), due to easier
    classroom availability at that time.

    Unigroup is pleased to announce our January 2016 meeting, which
    will cover the latest Intel CPU Architecture Roadmaps.
    Unigroup's Intel Contact, Charles Milo, will be back to update
    us regarding the latest CPU features, and what to look for in
    the newest CPU releases.

    Unigroup Elections: Unigroup holds Board of Director Elections
    every January. If you are a Unigroup Member and would like to
    run for the Unigroup Board, please contact us on or before our
    January meeting. Board members are expected to regularly
    attend Unigroup General and Board Meetings, and basically help
    the rest of the board run Unigroup. If you would like to help
    out Unigroup, but not join the board officially, please let us
    know. Unigroup needs your help! Unigroup is a not-for-profit
    volunteer organization, and has been serving the Greater NYC
    Metro Unix/Linux/BSD Users Community for over 30 years!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Giveaways:
    ----------

    Addison-Wesley Professional/Prentice Hall PTR, and O'Reilly have
    been kind enough to provide us with review copies of some of their
    books, which we will continue to raffle off as giveaways at our
    meetings. The publishers always ask that the persons receiving
    the books provide a review and/or feedback about their books.

    Unigroup would like to thank both companies for the support
    provided by their User Group programs.

    As always, all of the books will be available for review at the
    start of the meeting.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Fee Schedule:
    -------------

    Unigroup is a Professional Technical Organization and User Group,
    and its members pay a yearly membership fee. For Unigroup members,
    there is usually no additional charges (ie. no meeting fees) during
    their membership year. Non-members who wish to attend Unigroup
    meetings are usually required to pay a "Single Meeting Fee".

    Yearly Membership (includes all meetings): $ 50.00
    Student Yearly Membership (with current! ID): $ 25.00
    Non-Member Single Meeting Fee: $ 20.00
    Non-Member Student Single Meeting (with! ID): $ 5.00

    * Payment Methods: Cash, Check, American Express.
    MasterCard, VISA, Discover (since 2013).

    ! Students: We are looking for proof that you are
    currently enrolled in classes (rather than working
    full-time), and as such, your Student ID should show
    a CURRENT date. We have been presented Student IDs
    containing NO dates whatsoever, and in the
    current environment, perpetual/non-expiring access
    to university facilities just does not feel right.
    If your ID contains no date, please bring
    additional proof of current enrollment. Thanks,

    NOTE: Simply receiving Unigroup Email Announcements does
    NOT indicate membership in Unigroup.

    Members: Remember to bring your Unigroup membership card with
    you to the meeting, to confirm your yearly renewal date!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Food:
    -----

    Complimentary Food and Refreshments will be served.

    chicken, tuna and grilled vegetables as well as assorted salads
    (potato, tossed, pasta, etc), cookies, brownies, bottled water
    and assorted SOFT beverages.

    [Tentatively] Our thanks go to Intel for sponsoring the food
    service for this meeting!
