First Meeting of Mid-Atlantic Division Lync Users Group (MADLUG)

Welcome to the Mid Atlantic Division Lync User Group known as MADLUG. This user group will promote a sense of community across the Mid-Atlantic Division with like-minded communication and IT professionals. By attending these meetings, in-person or virtually through Lync, you’ll gain an understanding of the fast-evolving technology of Microsoft Lync and its integration with existing telephony – allowing users to share ideas, technologies and collaborate on business decisions. The meetings will also help community members facilitate better technology purchasing and implementation decisions to support communications enabled business processes.

MADLUG will have regularly scheduled meetings on the last Tuesday of every other month rotating from lunch and learn meetings to after-hours meetings. Community member, vendor, and Microsoft sessions will be part of the rotating agendas.

Join us to become a premiere leader in the Unified Communications arena.

First Meeting:

March 26, 2013 2:00-2:45pm
