Is it really May 12, 2016 already?
Wow. I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun.
A year ago today, we launched CUGC at Citrix Synergy 2015. We knew the demand was there for a high-quality user group, but even we were surprised by the overwhelming response we received from day one.
And the lines. Remember those lines at the booth to register for CUGC and get your launch t-shirt?
But do you know what the best part was and is? The enthusiasm hasn’t died down. CUGC has grown tremendously over the past year. Here are a few CUGC stats for those numbers people out there:
We’re just getting started. Our second year promises to be even better than the first with more content and offerings that matter to you.
As we start our second year, we hope you’ll join us throughout Synergy 2016 to celebrate how far CUGC has come and the exciting places that it’s going. Register for the CUGC Pregame and the Local Leader Panel, get your CUGC 2016 t-shirt and have a chat with us at our Drop In, and keep track of everything that’s happening on Twitter.
It only seems like yesterday that we launched CUGC, and now we’re celebrating our first amazing year. CUGC wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for our members and volunteer leaders, so thank you for making this community a reality. We can’t wait to celebrate with you at Synergy!
