SMUG 2012 - Agenda topic requests / Growing attendance list

Good afternoon all,


We need your input as we make our final preparations. 


First, below is a list of the SMUGs we have heard from that are sending people.  Please review.  Let us know of any updates necessary.  We want to give Marcie and the good people at UAH plenty of time to prepare for our arrival. 


SMUG 2012

April 19-20, 2012

University of Alabama, Huntsville

Attendees, as of March 27, 2012:

                                Bryan College                                                    3 people

                                Centre College                                                  2 people

McCallie School                                                 1 person

                                University of South Carolina                        3 people

                                University of Virginia                                      1 person


Second, we need to start talking about what we’d like on our agenda.  This is our event and we can do pretty much whatever we want!  (Within the laws of Alabama and Marcie can advise us on those.)  The purpose of the these MUG gatherings is to share and network.  What would be most useful to you?  Do you have new challenges in front of you?  Old challenges sitting on top of you?  Do you have some cool stuff to share?  (Swaggering is encouraged.) 


SAGE has indicated they would like time to present the following:

What’s new with Sage and Millennium and Beta.  Should take an hour and a half.

Summit updates.  Should take half an hour.

Review of the new enhancement software.  Should take half an hour.



Just to get us thinking  - below is the agenda from last year in Columbia, SC.
