Even more exciting is our inaugural meeting for Scotland and the North of England!
We are meeting again on 20th November at Microsoft’s Edinburgh offices. We will have some new speakers, and some of our best sessions from previous meetings will get an “encore” at this event. We hope to see lots of new members who cannot usually attend due to the distances involved.
Both meetings are free to attend for all CRMUG members, thanks to Microsoft’s kind and continued support of the events, providing venues and refreshments for us. You can sign up for a Basic membership of CRMUG at no cost.
Agendas are yet to be finalised, but basic details are below and I will update this post periodically and use twitter to point this out when I do. Registration for the events is open, but due to an upgrade the CRMUG main website will be down from 17th September while all the old content is migrated to a new platform. Rather than links that lead nowhere, I’ll add registration links on here once the site is operational again.
CRMUG UK Social Evening Wednesday November 12th
We are getting together for our usual informal social and networking gathering on the evening before the main event. This will take place at the Pitcher and Piano, 18 Friar Street, Reading, RG1 1DB which is in central Reading within easy walking distance from railway station, TVP shuttle routes and plenty of hotels.
Join us from 18:30 onwards for a few drinks, maybe a bite to eat (especially for those of you staying overnight in Reading), some networking, chit-chat and generally getting to know one another a bit better.Thanks to Andrew Bibby for getting things booked!
If anyone would like to sponsor the social by funding some light snacks at the start of the evening, please get in touch with me – we will ensure you get the recognition you deserve on Thursday!

Join up to 100 fellow CRM users for the next UK CRM User Group Meeting at Microsoft Customer Centre at Cardinal Place, London (Victoria). Coffee and Reception start at 9:00 am. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience what the CRMUG has to offer you and other Dynamics CRM users!
We will have multiple tracks for the middle part of the day, so you can choose the session that is of most interest and relevance. We will have a wide range of topics for everyone from business managers and project owners through administrators and functional consultants to the most technical system customisers and developers.

CRMUG UK Scotland and North of England Meeting
Agenda for this meeting is not yet finalised. I will update this when we have news. As the venue is smaller than Reading and we anticipate a smaller audience, it is likely to be a single-track event with a mixture of technical and non-technical content to suit all members.
Depending on discussions to be had on the day (and perhaps on how things go on Thursday 18th September!) we may make this a separate chapter in its own right, or continue to operate as a single UK chapter with regional meetings. Come along and let us know what you think!
This meeting will be at Microsoft’s Offices in Edinburgh.
2-4 Waterloo Place
Who should attend CRMUG?
All Dynamics CRM users are welcome. We also encourage you to invite your colleagues and other users – email to colleagues, tweet about it, mention it in your LinkedIn groups and other sites..
Partners are welcome to attend provided they are accompanied by a customer. Partners please bear in mind that the objective of regional events such as this is to exchange knowledge and Dynamics CRM experience. Partner personnel should possess deep CRM expertise and refrain from sales activities.
Hope to see you there!
