You’re sure to enjoy the virtual meeting presented through gotomeeting. Next month our topic is security. Stay tuned for details.

We’re very excited to be presenting MITEC in a virtual format. The event will be kicked off on Tuesday June 23rd, 2020. The event will feature 70++ sessions presented by world class industry experts, a virtual vendor expo, feature students and provide an ask the experts area for attendees to converse, ask questions and interact. Like many other groups we’ve needed to forgo the onsite event. Knowing MITEC plays an important role for an education opportunity and much more within our local community the decision was made to move forward with the Virtual event. We have teamed up with COMMON to accomplish providing an excellent power packed opportunity for IBM i colleagues. We are diligently working to have registration open this week. The event will kick off on the 23rd and be available for 30 days after to attendees. Registration cost is $125 providing a value packed education opportunity. For details visit

We will be ending the SEMIUG 2019/2020 year in June taking a break in July and August for the summer. We will be voting in June on the 2020/2021 board.

SEMIUG strives to bring education opportunities and much more to our local IBM i local colleagues. Thanks to the volunteers that have made a significant difference throughout the years. Thank you Jim, Charles, Amanda, Joy, Ed, Josh, Richie and David for your efforts making 2019/2020 a successful SEMIUG year.
