The General Meeting of OCMMA meets every third Tuesday of the month, in concert with the Creative Suite User Group - Orange County (CS-OC) . Our meetings feature presentations by Adobe specialists, business entrepreneurs, camera and hardware pro's, and others. Topics include trends in multimedia, demos of Adobe Creative Suite applications, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and others, as well as discussions of best business practices for web technology and the digital arts. The goal of this group is to provide local designers and developers with a forum for learning from speakers and from each other about how best to leverage the power of Adobe applications in their business workflows. Topics are selected to have broad appeal across the various multimedia disciplines.
In 2012 we will continue to explore ways to streamline your Adobe Creative Suite workflow, and we will also look into the emergence of new solutions such as the Creative Cloud, that will add even more powerful efficiencies to your creative process.
Admission to our meetings is free for OCMMA annual members; the price for non-members is $15, and $7 for students with ID. Come at 6 PM for networking and food and soft drinks.
Cynthia Gordon, who is the current President of OCMMA, is the Adobe User Group Manager of CS-OC, and Virginia Houts is the Co-Manager.
