From the President

Dear Members:

Summer is here!
We are pleased to have completed a successful 2016/2017 SEMIUG year, full of education, iDevcloud, MITEC, student activities and more.

Thank you to those who stepped up and volunteered as board members. The effort makes a difference. Thank you: Jim Thompson, Charles Nalbandian, Joy Chen, Amanda Walsh, Ed Berryhill, Doug Rezanka, and Richie Palma. A special thanks to Dale Thieme. Dale serves as the group's Webmaster and promptly updates the group site with current information. The commitment and effort is greatly appreciated and makes a difference to our local community. Thank you also to John Bizon for his continued efforts supporting SEMIUG.

MITEC 2017 was a great success. The event was well attended and featured pre-conference workshops, student participation, a power packed day of education and much more. We are pleased to have had 15 students participate at MITEC and connections between community and students/colleges make a difference in providing future resource on the platform. Several students have been placed through the connections made at MITEC. The event provided current education by world class industry experts. The event also included a vendor expo and vendor raffle. Schoolcraft Vistatech Center again did an awesome job to accommodate the event and provide fabulous food through the culinary institute. The event was appreciated and provided an opportunity for many to learn and interact with others within the community.

SEMIUG will be off for summer. Meetings will start up again in September. The SEMIUG board of directors will be meeting over the summer to plan for 2017/2018 year. Please step forward and share feedback, comments and suggestions and topics you would like to see included. It helps greatly for planning to have member thoughts and comments. We have had suggestions to have RDi, RPG and Watson/Bluemix topics. Let us know what you’d like to see included!

We look forward to another great SEMIUG year within our local IBM i community. Hope you enjoy summer. See you in September.
