On behalf of the XyUser Group Board of Directors, I’m very excited to announce that after much discussion and contemplation, the 2019 Fall XyUser Conference will be held at the Omni La Mansión del Rio RiverWalk in San Antonio, Texas, September 15-18. A lot of effort went into determining the venue this year and I hope you are as excited about the final decision as we are.

A big thank you to everyone who participated in answering our survey a few weeks back. We were very pleased by the level of participation, and hope you appreciated the opportunity to provide your personal input during the selection process. It wasn’t the determining factor, but it definitely was a big help to us in making the final decision (If anyone is curious, the results came out about dead even within 2 votes).

Believe it or not, 2019 will be the 30th year of XyUser Group conferences. Although personally I have not been to all of them by far, I trust you have enjoyed the conferences you’ve attended in the past as much as I have. If you’re brand new to our Group Welcome! If you’ve been to one or many, many conferences over the years welcome back! Either way we’re excited to have you and are sure you’ll find our group as rewarding and beneficial as we on the Board of Directors do. To celebrate this anniversary milestone, we will be having the Monday night event at The Alamo (Raccoon skin caps, and black ties are optional).

We have put together a conference agenda that we all feel is likely the best one ever with a continued focus on hands on mini-clinics and sessions based on the positive feedback we have received. Collectively, the Board feels this is likely the best collection of information and training we have ever come up with. More to come on specific sessions and mini-clinics in the near future.

For now, please circle the dates and keep an eye out for additional information as we make it available. Stay safe and warm over this last push of winter, if you have any questions please let Shawn Aruch or I know.
