The Fillmore Group is coordinating the startup of a virtual users group of DB2 Connect users.  We are actively seeking DB2 Connect users to participate – as members, as board members, and as presenters.  We hope to have a volunteer board meet periodically and have one to two hour sessions delivered via Webex to all members quarterly.  All of this will be handled virtually, with an opt-in email contact list providing event notification to members, and an affiliated IDUG group to provide interim communication between members. 

I am planning to attend the IOD Conference and will host a meeting on Monday, October 25th, for anyone volunteering to participate as a board member.  My colleague Blaire Crowley at The Fillmore Group is working with Michael McBride at IDUG to establish the IDUG group and to collect member, board member and speaker volunteer names.  On the 25th we will have board member volunteers attending IOD get together and share a conference call with remote volunteers to work through a schedule of events for late 2010 and 2011.

The virtual users group will initially operate independent of IBM and IDUG.  Kevin Foster and Kimberly Madia on the IBM DB2 Connect team have offered assistance with speakers. 

If you are interested in joining please email Blaire Crowley at blaire.crowley@thefillmoregroup.com.  Blaire will send you instructions on joining the IDUG group and add you to the list of members.  Please (please!) let Blaire know if you would like to volunteer.
