Going on right now in Grand Rapids, Michigan is MWLUG. And while I'm not attending this one, I'm really happy to see how many of our IBM Champions are speaking! I wanted to give a shout out to all of the IBM Champions who make user group events like this possible!
IBM Champions are champions because they go above and beyond the normal daily duties to share their knowledge of our products and services, they help fill the gaps between the information available with our software and solutions, and the real life knowledge you gain from working with these products in the field. They do this via their blogs, and by helping to organize, and speaking at events, like MWLUG. Among the amazing line up of speakers you will find 12 of the IBM Collaboration Solutions Champions:
IBM Champions build and nurture a sense of community, and I've seen no better example of a technology-based community than this bunch! As if they weren't fabulous enough, the organizers of MWLUG also have a Community Outreach Program, where they raise money for organizations that help the local community.
EDIT 8/29/14: Thanks to John Head for the suggestion, and the fabulous Oliver Heinz for the photo!
