Baltimore SQL Server Users Group History

The BSSUG was started in the days before SQL Server 7.0, back in 1999, by Raymond Barley.  The group has met in a few different places and been co-lead by a few different individuals, but the group has always been in the BWI-Columbia area.  We are a constantly growing group and always interested in meeting new members.  We are a member of the Capital PC Users Group and a SQL PASS official chapter.
