  In early June, 2009 the CWG Board of Directors approved an initiative to charter local or regional Chapters.  The concept is not new because there has been a very successful chapter in Western Michigan in the USA based in Grand Rapids that was the model for the formation and expanding the concept.   There are many SAP customers with complex products and use the VC and IPC in this area and thanks to to Steven Schneider and Kevin Meyers for forming and continuing to get the message out. 
A second CWG chapter has been chartered for the northeastern part of the USA and for now includes: New York Metro area and New England states.  The chapter organizers are Daniel Naus and James Cross.

Hello CWG Berlin Conference attendees,

This year we used only an electronic, online survey versus using a paper survey and would like to thank each of you that participated.   This survey was important to the CWG because it helped us gather information quickly with some reporting that is very difficult to create or collect manually. 

If you took the survey you probably noticed this survey is a little different because you could exit the survey and return to where you left off, so it was not necessary to fill out the entire survey all at once.  The electronic survey will be a process we will use in future conferences as well and really seek you candid responses and especially your comments. 

The 2009 European CWG Conference Agenda & Abstracts download.  We encourage all attendees to download and/or print this document because hardcopies will NOT be available at the conference this year.  We are pushing for an all electronic CWG and this holds true for Conference Agendas/Abstracts/Surveys.  We look forward to seeing you at the Berlin Conference !

This was the first time CWG obtained your feedback on this CWG Conference by an online survey.

  • Thank you for your feedback on the presentations
  • Thank you for your feedback on the conference
Feedback surveys are closed.

We had a really nice opportunity for all members attending the 2008 North American CWG Conference.

Configit, a long time sponsor of the CWG, hosted a Sunset Dinner Cruise on board the "Marco Island Princess" on Tuesday evening October 7, 2008.  Space was limited, but fun was had by all.  Thank you Configit.
