Message from the Board:

It was great to hear from Rick Cowles from IBM speak to the NEMUG group about the features and functionality of the recently announced IBM POWER 9 systems.  It was an informative session for all.  Thank you Rick!!  
For October we have Dawn May, who recently retired from IBM and started her own consulting business.  She will talk with us about topics she has written about during the past nine years. These will include IBM i Navigator, IBM i Performance Tools, IBM i Performance Tools, IBM i Services for System Admins, Subsystem Management, Pre-Start Jobs, ACS IFS Tasks and More.  

In February, we will again be raffling 2 separate registrations to attend the NEUGC Conference scheduled for April 8-10, 2019 in Framingham.  The registrations will be chosen by random draw from all meeting surveys received from September 2018 through February 2019.  The more meetings you attend, the more chances you have to win!!
