The AMR Research survey is now closed.  Thank you to those that contributed. 

AMR Research partnered with CWG and asked the CWG membership to participate in a study about using Configurator Solutions in everyday manufacturing situations.  This study is for ALL CWG Members, not just the attendees at the 2009 North American CWG Conference in Marco Island.

Take the opportunity to start your networking early and relax after your travel to the Hilton Hotel.  Weather permitting, we hope to have this gathering outside on the 11th floor penthouse terrace where you can meet others attending the conference.  

It is an informal gathering of members to rekindle old acquaintances and to meet new people.  CWG Board members will be on hand to greet new members or first-time attendees and answer any questions you may have.

This Meet and Greet is sponsored by Cincom.   Sunday night beginning at 7:00PM until ????. 

The 2009 North American CWG Conference "Early Bird" registration date has been extended one week to September 11, 2009.   So, you people that have waited until the last minute have one more week to get your approvals and still get the lower conference rate.  Make your arrangements now and REGISTER HERE.   This conference has some very interesting presentations and new this year for CWG is a detail list of the presentations prior to the conference so you can get a much better idea what you are going to miss if you don't register.  So, no more procrastination!

There are several presentations that are already scheduled for the 2009 North American CWG Conference being held at Marco Island in October.  There are many new categories being presented for the first time, updates from SAP, three training workshops after the conference and several hands-on workshops.

It's time to mark your calendar for October 5 through 7, get permission to come and make your reservations for the 2009 North American CWG Conference in Marco Island, FL.  This year's conference will be something you don't want to miss, with a Keynote Speaker, some updates on new projects, updates from SAP and 3 training workshops after the conference.

The Hilton Hotel is a great place to meet and have some fun too.

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.

Registration will be opening soon.

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.
