I learned that there is a new UC user group being formed in Pacific Northwest area: Pacific Northwest Unified Communications User Group (PNWUCUG). Now, say that acronym 3 times fast! :)
Anyway, the group's site can be found here: http://www.ucdoers.org/. The inaugural meeting is on Wednesday, May 28, from 4:00PM to 8:00PM. From the site, here is what the group will do:
Our goal is to sponsor a variety of events and activities throughout the Pacific Northwest region, bringing you and your peers together with a variety of speakers and UC experts. For this first event, we're pleased to announce:
Terry Myerson, Corporate Vice President of Exchange at Microsoft
Eric Swift, Senior Director of Product Management for the Unified Communications Group at Microsoft
Devin Ganger, Messaging Architect and Microsoft Exchange MVP at 3Sharp
Martin Tuip, Business Development Manager and Microsoft Exchange MVP at Mimosa Systems
All of the information on how and where to go as well as how to connect using Microsoft Office LiveMeeting can be found here. Who said Wednesdays have to be boring?
