~~SPECIAL NOTICE (Updated 10/09/20)~~

Hi again MUG Members,

MUG COVID-19 Update

     As we previously mentioned, situations continue to develop & today is no exception.

Thank you all for taking the survey & leaving your comments, it was instrumental in helping us to determine a proper course of action.

     The board of directors discussed our current conditions & decided that we should pull back from the planned September meeting & shoot for an October virtual meeting as our 1st meeting. As usual, we will keep you posted.

Please read the following message from our board of directors:

     As we begin our user group season, we are eager to get back to regular in-person meetings at our favorite establishments. However, in keeping with current health guidelines, we must start the season off virtually to ensure the well-being of our members.  

     The MUG Board of Directors will continue to evaluate CDC guidelines, NYS/local mandates and DOH regulations to make responsible decisions for the health and safety of our members and guests, with regards to the re-opening of our in-person meetings. In the meantime we are planning to hold virtual meetings to fulfill our commitment to provide education and value to our membership.

We thank you for your patience and co-operation throughout these unprecedented times.

On Behalf of the MUG Board of Directors

David Giambra, President


Our current tentative plans for the rest of the season are as follows (depending on conditions & additional survey results).....

September 24, 2020 Event:

Postponed until further notice


October 27, 2020 Event (Tuesday): Virtual.


  We are excited to have IBM Platform Leader, Steven Fier, talk about IBM’s recent announcements around Power9, IBMi Operating System and Cloud. You do not want to miss this informative session from an IBM subject matter expert. The pandemic has not slowed down IBM from refreshing the Power9 hardware in July and enhancing the IBMi software stack in October. IBM has supercharged the platform with many great new features and offerings. The presentation boils down the information and highlights key announcements of most value to you and your organization.
