<<Or is there something I am missing?>>

Yes. A half dozen or so folks would run out of experiences to discuss pretty
quickly. Without IBM or a willing BP, how would we be able to locate and
market the user group to the other midrange shops in the vicinity?

Paul,

What is stopping you from starting a "user" group? Can't you just meet
regularly and not require IBM's presence or support? Isn't the idea of a
user group meant to be a bunch of users getting together and discussing
their experiences, etc? Or is there something I am missing?

Trevor

Our group was told that an IBM liaison would be assigned out of an office
in Dallas. When I asked if she would have budget money to travel to San
Antonio for occasional meetings, I was told by IBM they would have to get
back to me with an answer. That was 4 years ago.

Larry,

I apologize for missing this last week. The Austin to San Antonio
corridor
is without any user group at all. We tried to get one started up 4 years
ago, but getting any cooperation from IBM proved to be an exercise in
futility.

Larry -

I am not an officer, only a member, of the Metro Midrange Systems
Association (MMSA) in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. MMSA is the only user
group in the North Texas area. The D/FW Midrange Professionals user group
(of which I was once president) merged with the MMSA back in the 90's.

Here is the URL for the MMSA:
http://www.metromidrange.org/aboutMMSA.shtml

You can contact the MMSA president (Robert Arce) at (817) 360-5616 for
more
information.

Regards,
Steve
