From the President

Dear Members:

Can you believe it? We have already reached June 2020.

We will be ending the 2019/2020 SEMIUG year with Robert Andrews presenting “IBM i Administrative Security Risks”. A very timely topic. It seems recently there have been a lot of vulnerabilities and attacks on systems. The more we know to protect and prevent security risks the better. Please join us on Tuesday June 16th and you’ll be sure to walk away with useful information that can be applied within your environment.

We’re closing in on MITEC “2020 iSight” kick off date. We’ve gone virtual. Given the pandemic we have decided to make the best of it and offer IBM i community members a virtual event. It’s not the same as onsite however we have strived to make it a power packed day of education. The event will feature over 70 presentations, over 20 vendors, students featured, user groups featured and an opportunity to converse and interact with others. Many groups have opted to forgo conference events this year. This inspired us to pursue having a virtual event. Since it is virtual the event can be attended from anywhere. The agenda is packed full of exciting current topics provided by world class industry experts. We are offering the event at a very affordable price of $125.00. The event will kick off on June 23rd and will be available for 30 days through July 23rd. Attendees will be able to set in on as many of the pre-recorded sessions as they like 24/7. We have teamed up with COMMON to make use their virtual tool and are very pleased with the event offering. For more information visit Hope you’re able to join in and take advantage of an exceptional learning opportunity.

Thanks to SEMIUG, WMSUG, OMNI, TUG, MRMUG and WMCPA groups for sponsoring the MITEC event. A special thanks also to COMMON for helping make this event possible. A special thanks also to Paul, Rachel and David for all of your efforts to help make the event happen.

It is June and that time of year again. Board elections will be held during our June meeting. If you’d like to volunteer don’t hesitate to step forward. Volunteering takes little time and makes a big difference.

We are looking for a webmaster to update the SEMIUG site. If you or someone you know is willing to step forward and volunteer please contact Laura at Thank you to David Cary for filling this roll in 2019/2020.

Thank you also to the 2019/2020 SEMIUG board. Your volunteer efforts are greatly appreciated and have made a difference in our local community. We’ll look forward to your joining in the June regular meeting and also hope to see you participate in the MITEC virtual event.
