This was an all day session with the New England ASUG Chapter and held at a beautiful setting at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. EMC was the sponsor that hosted the entire gathering. There were 100 to 110 attending and everyone heard the keynote speaker and CEO of ASUG, Bridgette Chambers followed in the afternoon by a presentation on how the JFK Library is automating all the JFK documents and making that ready for public viewing on their website.
New England (USA) Chapter
The New England ASUG and CWG Chapters are having a joint meeting on July 28th in Boston. It will be a full day event and is being held at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. There are three specific CWG VC topics being presented in a separate CWG Track and we invite you to attend if you are in the New England area or New York.
The success of this first chapter was the inspiration for forming more chapters and there is now a new CWG Chapter chartered for Northeastern USA called the New England CWG Chapter and for now encompasses Metro New York City, and the States of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. This is a rather large area to cover and we expect that this chapter will likely split into a smaller area for the convenience of the members. This chapter will be meeting in different locations and is lead by Daniel Naus and James Cross.
A LinkedIn Group has also been created for CWG Members living or working in New England or the Greater NYC area.
The New England CWG Chapter held a joint meeting with the ASUG (Americas SAP User Group) New England Chapter on July 22nd. With nearly 100 attending the day long meeting. EMC, located in Franklin, MA hosted the meeting and had great facilities. There was a new sense of awareness in the Variant Configurator and the CWG.
There were three tracks in the afternoon with one specific track on the Variant Configurator and we had 37 people listen to Presentations by Lawrence Matusek of eLogic Group on "10 Things a VC Modeler should know" and "SAP VC 101" and "SAP PDR - a hidden gem" by Daniel Naus of eSpline .
"Who is the CWG?" was presented by the CWG President in the general session and raised the level of understanding of who and what is the CWG. After the general session A CWG New England Chapter was held after the all day session. As a result there were several companies in the Boston area that joined the CWG.
