So how does NASA fit in the 2018 plans? This is a teaser, so you’ll have to wait and see below.
Below is the ASUG Virginia Chapter “YRC” (year-round calendar) plans for 2018:
|April||Friday, April 6 – Fairfax Water – Lorton, VA|
|June||June 26 Co-located EAM Community Chapter Meeting at Fairfax Water, Lorton, VA|
|July||July 27 Virginia Air & Space Center|
|October||Friday, October 26 – Altria – Richmond, VA|
So you can see the registration is open for our next chapter meeting in Northern Virginia. We listened and followed the ASUG Virginia Chapter Survey results and you can see over 62% of ASUG Virginia Chapter members prefer meeting in Northern Virginia.
Our summary agenda for April is as follows:
Meeting highlights include:
- Preparing the way from ECC to S/4HANA
- Creating ROI on the road to HANA
- Customer story from Loudoun Water on mobilizing SAP Geo.e
- SAP Public Sector Roadmap, courtesy of Marlyn Zelkowitz of SAP
Again this is based on the survey results for topics. For a “sneak peek” on how chapter volunteers plan for a meeting, see my draft spreadsheet below:

More on the April meeting in a future post. See you there?
July 27 ASUG Virginia Chapter Meeting, Virginia Air & Space Center – Save the Date
Plans are confirmed for this ASUG Virginia Chapter meeting to be held at NASA Langley Visitor Center in Hampton, Virginia. This is being lead by ASUG Board Member Rudy Hendricks and ASUG Virginia Chapter Chair Keith Seckman. The chapter hasn’t held a meeting in this area for several years, and kudos to Keith for thinking of this location. According to the 2017 survey the Hampton area is the third requested location for the ASUG Virginia Chapter.
The video above gives you an indication of how the meeting will look. You can also take some time to visit the exhibits, as the chapter meeting is tentatively planned to end at 1:00 pm.
I’ve been to the National Air and Space Museum before, but I haven’t visited “Coastal Virginia” so I am looking forward to this meeting. Call for speakers is planned for in May.
More to come on the Fall Chapter meeting in Richmond (the 2nd requested location from the survey) later this year. Special thanks to returning ASUG volunteer Melody Abadam and Altria for hosting ASUG again.
So what do you think of the ASUG Virginia Chapter’s plans for 2018? You can follow the chapter on twitter @ASUGVA
