Save the Date! 

I know we have announcements at home on the fridge… so it reminded me that I ought to do the same in our newsletter this month. 

Our 2017 Customer Conference will be April 26th (welcome reception) and April 27th (24 breakout sessions, dedicated ISV room) at the Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI.  

I encourage you to attend (and bring others) as there is no cost to attend – we have heard great feedback from our customers, our ISV partners, as well as our staff who relish the opportunity for direct face-to-face interactions with our customers.  We also want to hear from you on the content – you can absolutely influence our breakout sessions – what are you interested in hearing and seeing?  Please drop a line to any of our staff and let us know, after all, this event is for you!  If you have any questions or comments to share, please let me know – I hope to see you there!
