OpenMRS Implementers group changes 2015-03-05

On 5 March 2015 at 19:00 UTC, the OpenMRS Implementers mailing list will be moving from Google Groups to OpenMRS Talk. In order to support the community’s growth, we are moving our communications to a single location to which our infrastructure team has full ownership. We’ve been using and improving OpenMRS talk for nearly a year, are excited about its possibilities, and are excited to have you join us there.
