The Sacramento Video Industry Professionals are having their final meeting of the year on October 29th (A Final Cut Pro Users Group). Some info on the group:
This group is geared towards learning about Apple’s Final Cut Pro, Motion, Color, LiveType, DVD Studio Pro, Compressor, and Soundtrack Pro, but also embraces enhancing our knowledge of pre-production, production, and post-production processes and equipment.
They usually have some pretty good presentations, and they give away door prizes (at the next meeting they are giving out Adobe CS4). More info here.
