Since I am about 6 months behind on getting a meeting together, I have set a date to just have an hour conference call to talk about possible future topics and if you have a topic to talk about this time, that would be great.
August 3 from 12:00 - 1:00 --- Please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are planning on attending. I will then send you a conf call number and web meeting information.
I am just going to start with an hour, but if there are topics to show that will take more time, I will add more time.
Next meeting will be set for November 10th from 11 - 1.
August 3, we had our first chapter meeting. 6 companies were represented.
We discussed future meetings/topics. We are planning on meeting quarterly and also looking into meeting with ASUG. Topics that were of interest are items like lessons learned, tips and tricks, and demos of how companies are doing VC.
I reviewed our current process at TE Connectivity and did a demo of the Quote and Sales Order process. I also talked about things that we may do differently than what others do!
Now that the holidays are over, I would like to get a meeting planned in Feb.
I am looking for volunteers to present or possible topics to cover. I am thinking this meeting will be a conference call/web meeting this time (mostly likely 1 - 2 hours). Please reply to this message or feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com if you have ideas. (Can also just let me know if you are interested in meeting, so I get an idea for the number of people!)
This Chapter is also being organized. The process began in November with eMail invitations to members within approximately 2 hours of the Twin Cities have been sent out asking for them to participate, join and help in the planning. Bill Dorow is leading the organization effort for this Chapter. Any CWG member or company employees using the SAP VC or IPC are welcome to join the Twin Cities Chapter. We only ask that you become a CWG member first.
Take advantage of this opportunity to network with other VC and IPC professionals in the area and add some of your own experiences so that others can learn too. A LinkedIn Group has also been established so that Twin Cities Chapter members can network with one another and also receive announcements and participate in specific discussions.
