Over the last few years, the original SBS groups that were started here in Australia by myself, Dean Calvert, Henry Craven and Stuart Applegate have gone through a bit of a growing up phase. The groups have been focusing on forming a national initiative and have as a result rebranded themselves as the SMB IT Professionals group. Their official website is www.smbitpro.org.
Below is a list of the groups and their regular meetings (something currently missing from the official site)
