User Group Leaders UNITE at the pre-TechEd User Group Leadership Meeting

If you are a user group leader in New England or a user group leader going to TechEd, you won’t want to miss the User Group Leadership meeting on June 11th.

The meeting will be in Microsoft’s Waltham Office, just north of Boston. If you need to get from Boston to Waltham, let INETA know!


You’re invited to join us at the at the Northeast Regional User Group Leadership Summit on Sunday 6/11/2006 at the Microsoft Waltham, MA office.


User Group Leaders today face many challenges such as promoting your group, financing, engaging existing members, recruiting speakers, finding new sources of content, leveraging local Microsoft relationships; etc. The New England INETA user groups along with INETA, in hopes of building a more close knit community, invites you all to join us on Sunday June 11th, prior to the start of TechEd 2006 in Boston.


The agenda for the summit will includes peer to peer sessions to address some of the key concerns and issues related to running a user group.  As a follow-up to last year’s hugely successful INETA User Group Leadership Summit, the New England INETA User Groups will host this event in the hope of that we can all learn from one another to improve the user group experience for our attendees as well as ourselves.  The sessions are open to all leaders, both local and afar.  


If you are currently involved with a user group, in a leadership role, want to get involved, or even looking to start one then you will get powerful direction in the course of the sessions. If you read this far, you know this is for you.
