The Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS) is an independent, not-for-profit association, dedicated to supporting, educating, and promoting the Microsoft SQL Server community. The I-380 PASS Chapter was formed in 2009 to support SQL Server users in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, and surrounding areas. We meet the second Tuesday of every month, and we're working hard to develop a vibrant and interactive SQL community for Eastern Iowa.

Meetings are always FREE and food is provided, typically pizza. Please register to help us know how much food to bring, but feel free to come even if you decide at the last minute and cannot register ahead of time. Details about the meeting can be found below.
