    13th Annual iMIS Users Conference a Success

    Conference Attended by Nearly 300 iMIS Users and Partners

    BALTIMORE, MD (October 1, 2009) NiUG International, the largest independent, volunteer-run user's group in the non-profit software industry, today announced the completion of the 13th annual NiUG Discovery Conference for iMIS users and the 4th annual conference managed directly by NiUG International. The conference was held September 28-30 in Baltimore, Maryland with nearly 300 participants, bucking downward attendance trends in the tradeshow and exhibit industries.

    "We are thrilled with the continued growth and success of NiUG International," said Bob Alves, ASI Chairman and CEO. "NiUG International is a one-of-a-kind user group and naturally supports our mission of keeping our customers for life."

    Key Facts

    • John Howarth Memorial Award: A highlight of the conference, the John Howarth Memorial Award recognizes outstanding contribution and support to NiUG International. John Howarth was the Northeast Regional Sales Manager for ASI, and a long-time friend of NiUG, who passed away in 2006. John was a catalyst for the creation of NiUG, back when it was a regional users group. His foresight to create a formal group of iMIS users provided the foundation for what NiUG International is today.

      In remembrance of John’s spirit and acknowledgment of his accomplishments in the iMIS community, the NiUG Board of Directors established this award to recognize those, who through their passion, persistence, optimism and grace under pressure, have distinguished themselves in service to the iMIS community, representing the mission of the organization, and mirroring the quality of character of John Howarth. This year’s winner was Jake Bound, Vice President of the People and Director of Web Services for (C) Systems (an Authorized iMIS Solution Provider).

    • Great Things Awards: Bob Alves, ASI Chairman and CEO, recognized five iMIS customers who doing great things in their community with the support of iMIS. This year’s winners represent a wide range of worthy causes: the Air Force Sergeants Association, the American Association for Cancer Research, the Florida Medical Association, the Links Incorporated, and the Michigan Farm Bureau.

    • Key Note Speakers: Wes Trochlil of Effective Database Management gave an engaging presentation on ‘Tips and Tricks for Managing Data Throughout the Organization’ and Sigmund Vandamme of NimbleUser presented how to use a variety of new tools and technologies for a ’90-Minute Organizational Makeover.’
