This multi-state group meets every other month virtually by videoconferencing. The purpose of this MAGPI K20 User Group is to bring together connected organizations across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Kentucky to encourage cross-fertilization of ideas, collaboration opportunities, and resources on the use of MAGPI and Internet2. These meetings are open to any MAGPI member institution and feature guest speakers and resources that we hope will be of interest to you.
