This Month’s Meeting:


TwinSPIN Program Planning for Meetings September 2018 - June, 2019.   

Speakers: TwinSPIN members interested in planning next year's programs

The agenda for the meeting is:


  • New agenda items
  • Program performance review (September 2017 - May 2018)
  • Possibly meeting theme for the year
  • Meeting topic brainstorming
  • Topic refinement and speaker selection
  • Program manager assignment


Our goal at the end of the meeting is to have a theme and a tentative schedule for next year with Program Managers identified, potential topics, and speakers selected.



Planning has started - Pat O'Toole, who is in Minnesota during the summer, has agreed to talk on August 9th. The subject will be an update of the new version of CMMI 2.0. It is an August meeting but Pat is always a great speaker.
