From the President

Dear Members:

for. We are pleased to continue to bring education to our local community through SEMIUG offerings.

For our November meeting we have IBM i—it’s not just AS/400. The presentation is an excellent summation of what is new and what to look forward to on the IBM i platform. Thank you to Tom Huntington for allowing us to share this wonderful and informative presentation with our local community. The presentation is 90 minutes long and well worth the time invested. We will play the presentation through gotomeeting Tuesday November 15th at 6pm for those that would like to join in for our regular meeting time slot. Feel free also to watch the presentation at a time that fits your schedule. It is well worth the 90 minutes. You’ll catch up on what’s new and be informed about all things IBM i. A lot has been changing on the platform to bring new tools/solutions and meet organizations needs.

You’ll find the meeting at we’re tentatively planning MITEC 2023.

Once we have more details on date we’ll share with everyone. Stay tuned for other event notifications.

Student Resource

As many of you are aware I often work with students, educators and helping community connect with future resource on IBM i. I was able to attend an Infor event in Milwaukee where Paul and I manned an IBM i resource booth and also COMMON in St. Louis where I manned and participated volunteering for CEF (COMMON Education Foundation) and connected with several students that are looking for internships and opportunities. If you’re interested in student resource please contact me at and I’ll share student and college information. There are a great group of students that are looking for opportunities. We hope you join us Tuesday November 15th. If not you’ll be able to play the November presentation when it fits your schedule. We will be off for December holidays and will start up again in January.

Thank you everyone for participating in SEMIUG activities. We appreciate our community and understand one thing constant about IT is change. We’ll continue to strive to bring current education and interaction opportunities to our local community. On behalf of the SEMIUG board we hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
