A friend, co-worker, neighbor, service people or a family member?
Heroes are ordinary people who have accomplished extraordinary things in life and in some way have touched your life.
The dedication and support of these people who volunteer their time and energy for ultimately the greater good of the product they work with on a daily basis is incredible.
Have you ever talked to or watch a leader facilitate a user group meeting? They do it all: organize agendas, communicate to the members, attain speakers, answer questions, motivate the membership/keep the drum beat going, prepare the meeting rooms, do the post meeting activities, and so much more. So much of these tasks could not be done without their drive and passion.
Picture: The Global Tivoli User Group (GTUG) council at Pulse 2010
These user group leaders who are ordinary people do accomplish extraordinary things for the user community and so TODAY I, as the Global Tivoli User Community Manager, salute you for all of your hard work and service to keep the user community one of the strongest user communities IBM software has the privileged of supporting.
See these "heroes" in action....attend one of the 30+ user group meetings taking place in the next 7 weeks. For more information on user groups check out the Global Tivoli User Community website.
Come collaborate with me.......Who are your heroes? What have they done that makes them your hero?

What did you say?...Are Tivoli User Groups dead?...NO WAY!
In fact, with the 23,000+ members around the world and the 140+ local and virtual user groups around Automation, Storage, Security and Asset, the community is as live as it has ever been.
As the Global Tivoli User Community Manager, I wanted to share with you a few interesting facts:
FACT: 15+ User Groups formed in 2009
FACT: Most user groups try to have a physical meeting 1-2 times a year
FACT: 16 User Groups held a meeting in July and August, usually a very quite period for the Northern Hemisphere of the world.
FACT: 38+ user group meetings already scheduled for Sept - Dec. Much more to be scheduled!
FACT: 134 questions asked in July and August using the Q&A tool of the Peer to Peer Knowledge Exchange
FACT: 47 comments have been made by 19 people, using the "Be Heard" capability on www.tivoli-ug.org in July and August
So while the "slow" summer is almost over and fall is fast approaching, user group leaders are feverishly working on setting up local user group meetings and virtual meetings via conference calls before the end of the year and the upcoming Pulse Conference in Las Vegas.
Get connected today and join the Global Tivoli User Community and a user group.
If you have an upcoming user group meeting or would like to share some success stories you've experienced with the user groups, please respond to this blog and let us know!
