Success of the user group is about creating an environment where users want to be involved because it’s the best venue for exchanging ideas and sharing valuable experiences. I am running for a place on the ODTUG Board of Directors because I’ve always found that user groups play a key role in facilitating communication and learning, provide users a valuable support network, and are a great place to exchange information and share ideas. I am uniquely positioned for this role because in my 25 years working with Hyperion applications I’ve worked as a client, a vendor and as a consultant. My experience working across the entire ecosystem will enable me drive value, learning and sharing for all users.
If elected, I promise to bring a deep commitment to the work of ODTUG. As a Board member, my goal is to work with other Board members and the user community to continue finding new ways to increase levels of communication and awareness with Oracle leadership, the development community, industry thought leaders, etc., and to create opportunities to bring greater awareness of the benefits of participating in the ODTUG community. I am grateful for the outstanding benefits I’ve received as a longtime member of ODTUG, and I would welcome the opportunity to give back to the community by serving on its Board.
