 Community Time for Power Users



Starting this month and going forward, there will be a dedicated time for anyone attending the meeting to ask/answer questions related to any SharePoint feature. 


We, at the steering committe feel that there is enough knowledge among all of the attendees that we can help each other by sharing the knowledge.
Our goal is that this time will be use to introduce SharePoint features (tips/tricks), ask questions, answer questions, showcase a technique, etc. by the attendees.


Give us your opinion about this time slot. Or if you would like to be a part of this time, drop us an email at


No vendor topics.





NOTE: Due to the renovations at the Microsoft Office, we are temporarily relocating our meetings to the Cardinal Solutions Office in Downtown. For more information click here


Special thanks to this month's Dinner Sponsor!


​Businesses are challenged to stay ahead of the latest trends and competitive developments, while building a responsive and agile IT capability to support growth. However, since everyone has access to the same tools, technology alone does not offer a competitive advantage. Your advantage depends on how you apply technology—namely, who does it and how it is done. Mastery of these fundamentals can propel an organization from its starting point to the forefront of their industry
