Above is an insert I kept from an ASUG 2008 volunteer meeting.
ASUG's Mea (Melissa) Andrews covered these items:
3 ASUG goals, objectives, influence, education, expanding awareness,
We discussed we drive vs. ASUG HQ regarding influence programs
Mea said this plan will be shared incrementally and that she wants to "make it easier to work with ASUG"
Ideally we should have a SIG representative on each council
Some discussion occurred on what are healthy parameters as a SIG as a unit
There should be more coordination between SIG's and influence councils; some groups do this well and others not at all.
At the end of the day best practices were discussed and shared. We talked about sharing more success stories.
I asked ASUG presence for help to promote Influence at SAP TechEd
SAP's Kristin Albright shared the upcoming CEI cycles:
2018 CEI cycles
Cycle 2 - May 21-June 15
Cycle 3 - Oct 15-Nov 9
The ASUG offices are located in the historic Civic Opera building
Above is the ASUG key events calendar displayed in the office. Next up is 2018 ASUG Annual Conference
