On March 22, the third New York Metro CUGC event was held at the French investment bank Societe Generale (SG) in Midtown NYC. It was the first event this year in the New York Metro area, and the second held at SG’s New York offices. As always, yours truly live-blogged the event. Want a play-by-play recap? Check out the blog post here: NY CUGC #3 – Live coverage.
The New York Metro CUGC team was excited to once again bring together IT professionals from around the surrounding New York area. We even hit a record-high attendance for this session, with more than 100 attendees!
The main attraction of the event was the Synergy Pass giveaway. Sylvia T. was the lucky winner and we will be happy to meet her at Synergy 2017 in Orlando, FL.
Jay M. and George M. both won $100 Amazon gift cards provided by Liquidware Labs.
We also gave away many CUGC t-shirts to our attendees during the Trivia/Quiz presented by Howard Mansbach.
Below are the people who worked hard to make this event a success. All these people are truly passionate and we are fortunate to have them involved in our Citrix User Group Community! Big thumbs up to all of them!

It was a great event with an active and enthusiastic crowd. Presentations by Ron Oglesby, Matt Boyajian and Landon Fraley were both enlightening and informative. Ron’s session on App Layering garnered a lot of excitement within the group, with plenty of questions and discussion. We also had a great time running our Citrix Trivia Quiz with the group, and are happy to bring one of our members, Sylvia, with us to Synergy next month! We look forward to our next event, most likely in June to debrief Citrix Synergy 2017 in Orlando. Stay tuned!
