PlanetOIT Community Corner

This is the place where you can acknowledge the good work of your colleagues, post notices about upcoming meetings and events, share useful tips and tools, and learn a bit more about what your colleagues do outside of work. Think of it as a virtual break room bulletin board. We hope you find the Community Connections page useful and welcome your ideas for new features.
