June 2011 Events in Metro Detroit Area

Since I’m involved with many web, social media and usability groups in the area, I often get asked about upcoming events. I’ve made a habit of announcing events at our Refresh Detroit meetings. We don’t have a calendar in our area that tracks all events (yes, Nick I’m giving serious thought to creating one.

I created a list of June events that you may want to attend. It’s a mix of the areas I’m interested in and many of the events are free. If you know of an event you would like added, please contact me.
