1.      The next APCUG Virtual Technology Conference (VTC) will be on Feb 11, 2017 (Saturday).

APCUG offers a Virtual Technology Conference (VTC) quarterly.

VTC’s give User Group members the opportunity to ‘attend’ presentations in the comfort of their own home.

Check out the videos of past VTC sessions at APCUG’s YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/apcugvideos  .

Many groups are using the videos as meeting presentations. You will find information about the Virtual Conferences under the Benefits tab at the APCUG web site. www.apcug2.org  .
