In the years since MrExcel started, I've met many new online friends and as I have traveled around, I occassionally have had the opportunity to meet people who I originally met here at MrExcel. So, this will start as a photo album of people who I've met. If you are a member of our community and have met someone else from the board in person, send your photo to consult at MrExcel.com and I will add it to the album.

I've also met some folks but took their picture with a regular camera instead of a digital camera. Those are going to be harder to track down.
If you have photos of you and someone else who you've met through the MrExcel site, send them in!
