From the President

Dear Members:

As summer ends a new season begins for SEMIUG. We had an awesome 2017/2018 and look forward to an exciting 2018/2019 SEMIUG year. We finished the year strong with a great MITEC event well attended and with plenty for everyone. We also included many students at the event. SEMIUG helped sponsor the students at MITEC and in appreciation the students provided a thank you note to SEMIUG for sponsoring.

Members may also join in remotely using gotomeeting. RDi continues to advance and you'll be sure to learn something by joining in September's meeting.

We have an exciting year planned, kicking off with RDi and also plans for Booting IM I from USB Drive, PHP, presentation by Larry Bolhuis, Watson student and user group member hands on activity, RPG Free, HA and Open Source. We continue to strive to bring world class current education from leading industry experts. We welcome feedback and conversation from user group members.
