The Southern California Innovative Users Group (SCIUG) conference will gather on October 14, 2016, at Loyola Marymount University, and the Steering Committee is eagerly seeking program content from you.

Suggested topics from last year’s post-conference evaluation include:

  • III Customer Support / new functionality
  • Weeding
  • More Polaris presentations
  • MySQL workshop / SQL report-writing
  • 3rd-party tools w/III products
  • Best practices

  • Technology / marketing ideas and the library

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to showcase late-breaking ideas, trends, and achievements so we can all learn and share within the Southern California III community.

Have you recently completed an interesting project, reconfigured a workflow, or had an “ah ha” moment?   We want your contribution!
