This month we have a special treat.  Colin Stasiuk is going to do a live webinar for us on Policy Based Management.  Here is the abstract from his talk:

Doing More With Less... Policy Based Management

Do more with less… sound familiar? In this introduction to Policy Based Management presentation we will be going over what Policy Based Management is and how to use Policy Based Management and a Central Management Server to evaluate your daily, weekly, and monthly checklists against your entire SQL Server farm. We will be reviewing some of the “out of the box” policies as well as creating some custom policies that you might be interested in evaluating against your SQL Server farm. Finally we will be taking a quick look at how to tie all of this together with the Enterprise Policy Management Framework.
