President's Message

Dear Gateway/400 User Group Member:

While economy thrives, we've had another good year for the Gateway/400 User Group. Membership in our group is still the best investment in IT education your company can make. Come and grow your knowledge and skills. We have had excellent speakers and topics in the past and this year will be just as good. Industry giants such as Scott Klement, Mike Pavlak and many more IBM i experts. We hope you and your IT team will come to the meetings, learn and enjoy the opportunity to network with your peers. Those included general IT and IBM i specific topics. Topics from security, Application development, networking, opensource, big data and more.

Please come join us. We have outstanding industry speakers booked for the your educational value. Past presentation handouts are available on our website. Education like this in a full day hands-on seminar can cost more than $400 per person. Hot lunch and a front seat ticket to hear all of these speakers are included in your membership fee. Most speakers also allow you to contact them with questions after the presentations – this is another great value. If you are not local to the St. Louis area you can still join our meetings remotely - using WebEx as a member.

Dues again this year will be only $200 for your company to join with 1 membership and $175 for each additional membership. This allows employees from your company to attend the hot meal luncheon monthly meetings and our all day seminars. We're having our meetings at Spazio in Westport.

Your participation is making our group as strong as ever. Volunteer and give us feedback about what you like and want to hear, tell your colleagues about our group, and please renew your membership today.

Sincerely,

Craig Jacquez, President Gateway/400 User Group
