The Cincinnati RUG continues to build momentum with growth in the number of speakers and diversity of topics in 2014. Tuesday's event featured ~30% first time attendees and matched the large turnout of previous years. The room layout facilitated some excellent networking with breakfast and lunch at round tables and regular session in traditional seating. Several attendees remarked how their participation would have an immediate impact in their daily work. I personally found several great collaboration opportunities with regional PLM leaders. Better yet, several RUG members have stepped up to volunteer for leadership roles in 2015 to ensure the community continues to grow and thrive. The future is bright!
