If you are extremely interested in Dynamics GP and our Boyer twice a year meetings are not enough for you, please consider joining the Dynamics GP User Group (GPUG).  Kristen Hosman, from the Boyer staff, is a member and would be happy to be your host for the next meeting.  Some of the meetings are virtual so you don’t even need to leave work.  Kristen has attended the GPUG Summit as well and can share with you what that was like last year.

The Dynamics GP User Group (GPUG) is a place for users to share their experiences and learn more about GP. The group is made up of Partners and users who share the ambition of utilizing GP and all it has to offer. The community of users gets together remotely and face-to-face to share knowledge and best practices.
