I went into this year's conference with some trepidation. It had been 3 years since our last conference and NAUG as a whole was relatively non-existent over that time span. The Board worked with Aptean to revive the user group and its annual conference. We contacted GoMembers clients by telephone and/or email to get some consensus on what they thought of NAUG and the conference. We felt we put together an excellent program. But the resulting low registration numbers was disappointing. I feared that members would not get the value they expected from the conference.

I'm very happy to say that my fears quickly disappeared. Feedback was extremely positive with some saying it was one of the best NAUG conferences ever! Aptean was more actively involved that I had ever experienced. The new developments they are bringing into the product and the attention to their clients' needs for product enhancements instilled a renewed enthusiasm in the members. New volunteers came forward to participate on the Board and some great new ideas emerged to foster collaboration and revitalize NAUG. It was very exciting to experience!

And what about you? Tell us about your experience at the 2015 NAUG Conference.

While needed for the conference audience, some of the material is a bit basic for me. This year more advanced material was added, which is great. I do think we could benefit from different track experiences (basic, advanced user, administrator, etc) so that the conference could be used as training for new staff, refresher training, and there would be an assurance that there would be learning experiences for all.

I definitely learned some things that I have already used since returning. Much of my value as an employee comes from my different experiences at different associations over the last 20+ years. Conferences like this expose us to the different experiences that other associations are having without having to change jobs!
