Danny Pancratz OOO Information: May 22 - June 2, 2015

Version 11

    Greetings from Ireland, ASUG Staff and Volunteers!

     

    I'm out of the country celebrating two milestone birthdays with my family (my 30th and my Dad's 60th). It's unlikely I'll be able to access my email during this time, so below is a comprehensive update for the meetings I've been helping coordinate.

     

    SIGs - If you need assistance setting up a webcast or distributing a newsletter, my team will be able to assist you. Contact communities@asug.com or Kaela.Altman@asug.com; Shannon.Carter@asug.com; or Meghan.Wachter@asug.com.

     

    Reminder on webcasts: I strongly recommend at least 4 weeks of promotional time for the best registration and attendance.

     

    Midwest Utilities Days in June: Kaela Altman can assit. Registration is open and promotion is ongoing

    Southwest Utilities Days in July:

     

    Additional email promotion of both these regional Utilities meetings is scheduled for Thursday, May 28. Additionally, there will be a final call for speakers email for the SW Utilities Days that distributes on Monday, June 1.

     

    Chapters: See below for updates on the summer Chapter events. Most of these events are in good shape and I should be able to help with any requests upon my return.

     

    Contact communities@asug.com if you have any urgent requests (sponsorship, payments, agenda updates, etc.)
