No month determined, and nothing for sure, but there is talk about having a Joint NOIS-CDPUG Event.

Adobe is coming out with a full version of Photoshop for iPad Pro, with a release date coming some time in 2019.

So we may see a joint meeting to learn about this new Photoshop AND Procreate.

Procreate is a very powerful sketching and illustration app developed for mobile devices, including iPad.
