LISUG (the Long Island Systems Users Group) was originally formed in 1984. Started originally as the Long Island System/38 Users group by a number of System/38 users and with IBM's help, it has become one of the largest and most technical user groups in the country. When IBM announced the AS/400, LISUG decided to drop its System/38 name to become the Long Island Systems Users Group, now chartered to advance the knowledge of all computer users on all platforms.
LISUG hosts dinner meetings at the Westbury Manor in Westbury, NY (call (516) 333-7117 for directions) usually on the third Wednesday of each month September through June (no meetings held during July and August unless a special meeting is convened by the Board of Directors). The meetings begin at 6 PM and end about 9:30 PM. The format of the meeting is a cocktail hour from 6 - 7 PM, with scrumptious hors d'oeuvres and open bar (use this time to network with your peers), followed by a sit down dinner beginning at 7 PM (during dinner we have a Q/A session that is most interesting), sometimes we are treated to a wonderful buffet! The balance of the meeting (usually 8 PM - 9:30 PM) our speaker gives his/her presentation (stay after the presentation and quiz the people that are developing the latest hardware and software technologies!). LISUG attracts some of the industry's top speakers, including folks from IBM Rochester and Toronto labs.
Reservations for the dinner meeting are not required, but are appreciated. To make your reservation, please click on the meeting registration link.
You do not need to join LISUG to attend its meetings, however, there is a monetary incentive to do so! You can save up to $100.00 as a member attending all 10 meetings. Members pay $65.00 a meeting whereas non-members pay $85.00 (saving $180.00). You can save an additional $50.00 annually if you pre-pay your meeting fees. Members also benefit because LISUG is a member of the national IBM user group COMMON, so if your organization is not a member of COMMON but do attend its conferences this can save your company hundreds of dollars on COMMON registration fees.
So! Check us out, come to a meeting, query our Directors and Officers, question the expert speakers, save time and money while advancing your knowledge and career!!
