Thoughts on the Chicago SQL Server User Group

It is official. Aaron Lowe (b|t) and I are the new co-presidents of the Chicago SQL Server User Group. Our first meeting was last Thursday, and it went off without a hitch. Many thanks to Rick Alaras and Casey Gwozdz from Computer Associates for their presentation on Erwin and for the pizza. Also, thanks to Ross LoForte and the rest of the Microsoft staff for their continued support of the user group. Finally, eternal gratitude to Bill Lescher for his 10 years of service running CSSUG. The example he set made me want to get involved.

One of the things Aaron and I are interested in doing is giving people a safe environment to begin presenting on SQL Server topics. Jes Borland does a great job describing the effect presenting can have on one’s personal and professional development and the role that user groups can play in this post.

The Professional Association for SQL Server has local user groups worldwide. If you aren’t a member of PASS, register. If you are a PASS member but aren’t active in your local user group, get involved. And if you live in the Chicago area and are interested in presenting at CSSUG, feel free to contact Aaron or me. Any SQL Server-related topics are welcome, and presentations can be as short as 15 minutes.
