Fall 2007 User group meeting



A year in review

This last year was one of our best years to date, our average attendance at user group meeting is up, and our mailing list registration is up. OWSUG was able to participate in the Vista launch along with Ottawa .NET Community, at the Congress Center.  We completed two more study groups (70-291 and 70-294). We worked with the Ottawa .NET Community and now both user groups have their study group meeting held on the same night at CTE Solutions.   All in all it was a good year.


Here are a few things to note about the OWSUG.


Mailing list members: 464

Forum Members: 346

Study group: 2

Study group members: ~30

Study group meetings: ~25 meetings


Let’s hope that next year is even better!
