Barnet (or close by) Nework Managers' Group
Me and another local NM have been mulling over the idea of setting up a common interest group for NMs and equivalent in the Barnet area (always assuming, of course, that such a group doesn't already exist).
We forsee the group doing the following:
- Discussing just about any item of interest to schools' IT staff
- Recommending (and disrecommending) vendors and products
- Maintaining a secure repository of what technologies and software are in use at member schools, so that we have resources to call upon when considering purchases or when problems arise
- Devising common solutions to common problems
- Share news, such as virus outbreaks, scams, sucess stories
- Socialise (maybe)
If the group becaus large enough it could branch out into procurement, and act as a pressure group when required for dealings with bodies such as LGfL.
Meetings venues would rotate around the schools, perhaps with the hosting school chairing the meeting.
Please PM if interested.
