Presidents Report

A PABUG box lunch meeting at the Ellucian Live conference was held on April 8, 2013 in Philadelphia PA. 

The Officers and Track Leader retreat was held May 1 & 2, 2013.  An outcome of the retreat was the decision to ensure the PABUG organization was legitimately tax exempt.  As a result, the services of the ATA Financial group were retained to assist with this initiative which include our organizations first tax filing.

PABUG Technology Day was held on September 12, 2013 at Penn State Great Valley in Malvern PA.  There were sessions about Banner XE, Cognos and Banner Data Defense.  The event attracted 63 attendees.
