No Meetings for July and August
See you in September!
From the President
We are on break for Summer and will begin regular monthly meetings in September. Thank you to SEMIUG board for a great 2017/2018 year. Thank you also for board members stepping forward and volunteering for 2018/2019. This year’s board includes Laura Ubelhor President, Jim Thompson Vice President, Amanda Smith Secretary, Charles Nalbandian Treasurer, Ed Berryhill, Joy Chen, Richie Palma, Josh Jamie and David Cary Director and Dale Thieme Webmaster. Thank you to the board for helping bring education and community activities to our local members. Our board will be meeting over the summer and planning for 2018/2019 SEMIUG year. If you have suggestions for topics that you would like to see, please contact any board member. So far, we have firmed out plans for RDi, PHP and Watson activity. It helps greatly to have member input when planning the education year.
We are very pleased to have a successful MITEC 2018. The event was well attended including 18 students. The day started off with our dear friend Tracy Smith kicking the day off with an exciting opening session. The day included great choice of sessions, student meet and greet, vendor expo, celebrating IBM I 30th Birthday and much more. Thanks to presenters, vendors and attendees to making it a truly power packed day. Thank you also to Consultech staff for all their hard work organizing and putting on the event. The students that were ready for job opportunities were embraced by member organizations seeking resource and we are very pleased to make the connection through the event.
We are planning on including a student activity for the upcoming year and are working on aligning an activity that will include Watson or AI technology. If you have ideas for a student activity, please do share your thoughts. We have had great success in the past including student activities and understand that it is important to include the next generation and welcome them into our local user group community.
Enjoy your summer and we will look forward to an exciting 2018/2019 SEMIUG year.
