    The early bird registration deadline is just around the corner!   There are some great perks to early registration, and below are some of the great benefits.  Take advantage of this before it is too late!


    4 Reasons for Early Registration:


    1. Discounts on registration fees -    Early-bird registrants get $100 off the registration fee if they register before the deadline. 
      • Member Early Bird Rate - $595.00
      • Non – Member Early Bird Rate - $695.00
    2. Discounted Hotel costs – SNUG has secured a special rate at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel  @ $169 per night.   The rate is only guaranteed for a limited time, and this can save your organization expenses on travel costs through this offer. 
    3. Guaranteed Room Reservation - Early registrants will be guaranteed to receive a room at the Marriott Waterfront.   We can not guarantee room availability the closer we get to the conference.
    4. No Lines, No Fuss – Let’s face it, not last minute planning can turn into a hassle! Have piece of mind that your conference registration & accommodations will be prepared for you when you arrive.  No need to worry about red-tape at the registration line or getting a room at the conference.

      The Deadline for Early-Bird Registration is
      Friday, August 26th, 2011

    The SNUG Board and Sungard are meeting to plan the 2011 conference agenda. We are having some great discussions on how to meld the Client Conference.  Look for information soon on a tentative agenda.

    Here with a few SNUG Board members to learn more about the client conference and recruit people to help with combining BSNUG and Client Conferences.  Meeting lots of great people like at BSNUG conferences.  What has been interesting is that everyone is from K-12 so we have more in common.  Off to General Session.

    What a great conference!  Thanks to all that attended and especially the Board and presenters that made it possible.  I was surprised how much I learned that I will be taking back to work and sharing, training, implementing for months. 

    The conference was a great learning experience and chance to share information, but was overshadowed by the realization that many of us would not being seeing each other at future BSNUG conferences. BSNUG was a great family of users and will miss each other.  Our new user groups; SNUG and SUGA will become new families of peers and friends but will never take the place of the great friends from the last 10 years I have been part of BSNUG.  Thanks to everyone that made BSNUG what it was for the last 25 years.

    Thank you to all our members who participated in the Board vote, either in person, or by absentee ballot.  Our new Board Members are:

    Chris Grove - President Elect

    Wes Durham - Director at Large

    Tish Tagge - Treasurer

    Congratulations on your recent election!

    As you can see, we did not elect new Western and Eastern Chair elects.  It was decided by the Board and announced to conference attendees that due to budget, travel and attendance at recent conferences, it was better for us to be conservative and to allow us the time to regroup. 

    There will NOT be any regional conferences held in 2011.

    There are so many changes going on with the organization, that we wanted the time to make sure we are doing our very best to serve you and to also stay solvent and focused.  You will see many more announcements about that in the near future.

    We had an interesting turn of events today during the voting on the logo contest.  We had a tie!  It came down to a submission by Walter Crane, SunGard Public Sector and yikes... Me!

    Sadly for me I lost, but the best logo won!

    Congratulations Walter!  Your Nook is on it's way.  If you don't receive your gift, contact Rich Ober!  We had 200 witnesses watch Carol Fritsch, BSNUG Past President, give Rich Ober your prize...

    Thank you again to all of you who participated.  It was a great event.
