Happy New Year CIPTUG members!¬†
We kick off New Years with a bang, with some new announcements. The biggest announcement is our Regional Technology Forum in Raleigh, North Carolina on September 18th¬†and 19th, 2014.¬†We hope to have many of our members take advantage of the educational sessions we will have at the forum. We will have booths with our CIPTUG vendor members and sessions with Cisco engineers and our vendor members on VOIP related topics.¬†
CIPTUG will be returning to Cisco Live in May! Our very popular Customer Appreciation Event will be immediately following opening ceremonies at Biscuits and Blues, one of the top Blues clubs in the nation! Your customers will LOVE the atmosphere, food and open bar during this 3 hour event.¬†
If you want to attend just one event, the pricing is as follows:
Customer Appreciation Event: $3500
Regional Technology Forum:¬†¬†$2000
If you sign up to attend¬†BOTH¬†events, the sponsor fee is $5000.¬†¬†That‚Äôs a 10% savings!¬†
We look forward to working with Cisco and our Vendors to make this a year to remember!
Sponsors:¬†Contact¬†firstname.lastname@example.org¬†to sponsor and present at this event.¬†Spots¬†WILL¬†fill very fast so make sure you save your spot!
Another exciting announcement is that we have restructured our pricing for our Members and also our Vendors.¬†Please visit¬†www.ciptug.org¬†to check out how you will receive¬†more¬†benefits at a¬†greater value¬†to you and your company!¬†We are working hard to make CIPTUG the primary Cisco telephony users group in the nation.¬†
We encourage all the members to take advantage of the current rates and sign for 2014. We are reenergizing CIPTUG and hope you will stay for the ride! Please contact the board and let us know what you would like to do with your organization. The board is here to help its members in any way we can. We look forward to seeing everyone at Cisco Live in San Francisco, at our event and booth, and at our Technical Forum in September. It should be a great year for us!¬†
Have a happy, safe and prosperous New Year!¬†
John Bittle, CIPTUG President.
