NAVUG Forum 2012 kicked off today with a great audience in attendance, drawing approximately 340 attendees, which is around 100 more than last year’s event. As a regular attendee, it’s great to see the growth from year to year! Lee Weiner, NAVUG Chairperson kicked off the keynote and was followed by keynote speaker and Microsoft Dynamics NAV MVP, William (Bill) Pearson III.
Speaking of growth, we learned during the session that NAVUG itself has over 1000 members. I can remember the first NAVUG Forum that I attended years ago, much smaller in scale, and to watch how the event has evolved is an amazing attribute of the NAV community. The level of dedication the NAVUG team demonstrates in harnessing the power of this community falls nothing short of 100%. With a growing network of regional chapters and an expanding social media channel, the NAVUG member community is sure to see its reach continue outward.
During the opening session, Trish Boccuti, NAVUG Program Director, discussed the value of using social media channels and mentioned the use of Twitter hashtags to help connect the community. These social channels (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) have been an integral part in knowledge sharing and networking within the community. To get started with Twitter Hashtags for the NAV Community, read this Hashtag blog post.
Trish also noted that NAVUG is using m.foreversnap.com as its online photo collection site for NAVUG photos. I believe you need an iPhone or Android and then search for Forever Snap in the market.
