Who is your Hero?
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.

Being physically teleported from your office to a meeting or another location is not yet possible in our world as our friends through the American movie "Star Trek", have been able to do for years; however, the next best thing would be to have a meeting "beemed up to you" virtually.
We are all busy and traveling to a local meeting can be time consuming. My experience is that virtual meetings saves time, is structured, simple and yet it can be the best 60-90 minutes of your day. One of the greatest assets we have is the knowledgewe gain through the various tools and resources to us. One of those resources is the Global Tivoli User Community. If you are looking to get information, connect with others and make your views be heard then why don't you join a virtual user group. These groups, some of which are brand new, meet periodically through out the year via a conference call and the web to gain knowledge and exchange information.
Some of these virtual groups will be meeting within the next week so sign up today so you too can have the user group meeting "beamed up to you" . You journey with the user groups may expand beyond these virtual user gorups so check out the complete list of all user groups.
Do you have thoughts on virtual user groups? Have you attended one of these virtual user groups? Share with me your story.
