Dear Members

Hope you are weathering the cold. Just think each day we are that much closer to Spring. COMMON will be held in May 20th to May 23rd, 2018. You may visit the COMMON website for details. We also have plans well under way for MITEC 2018 and it is shaping up to be another great event and Power Packed day of education. The MITEC event will be held on Thursday June 14th at the Schoolcraft College Vistatech Center located in Livonia Michigan. We are planning to have registration open late March. Stay tuned for details at The event will again feature students, vendor expo, plenty of sessions to choose from and much more.

February’s meeting addresses a real and current need for many organizations. Where do you find resource to replace retired staff or expand staff? It is a misunderstanding that students aren’t interested to work on the platform and that there aren’t students prepared for working on the platform. Students aren’t the only option either. Join in on February’s meeting and you’re sure to walk away with idea’s on where to turn. Even if you’re not currently looking for future resource the presentation will provide valuable insight. Being aware is always a good position to be in. You’ll be able to join in onsite or remotely via web ex.

March’s meeting will feature Open Source. It’s a hot topic with a lot of buzz. Open source has been around for sometime and recently is picking up momentum. Stay posted for details.

If you haven’t already done so please pay your dues. You can find a membership dues form at the bottom of the user group membership page. Dues are the same affordable price at $50 for individuals or $100 for organizations. As a SEMIUG member you are automatically a COMMON member and entitled to COMMON benefits, you are also extended discount rates for MITEC and of course are entitled to participate in SEMIUG activities including monthly presentations and meetings.

Spring will be here soon.
