RE: COMMON Virtual Conference



fixed

The local user group in the San Francisco folded a number of years ago also.
It was truly a shame, because there are still lots of shops there running on
the Rochester based platform.

When I moved to Texas 5 1/2 years ago, there was an effort to get a group
started in the San Antonio area. When we inquired of IBM as to the
availability of getting a liaison assigned to assist us, we were told that
we could use somebody in Dallas. Our next question was to ask if that person
would be allowed a travel budget to come to San Antonio for one or two
meetings a month.

The question remains unanswered, 5 years hence.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. Read this from 2009:

And then read this to further re-iterate the point:

Actually there are a ton of sponsors for this so I'm pretty sure COMMON's
expenses (and then some) are more than adequately covered.
