If there's no local User Group in your area, or your interest is in a
product area not often covered by your local group, then ISUG's Virtual
User Groups (VUGs), also known as Special Interest Groups (SIGs), are
definitely for you. Virtual User Groups function
the same way as Local User Groups, except that the group meets via
conference call rather than face-to-face. New groups are being
organized for EAServer, PowerBuilder, and PowerDesigner. There
are existing groups for DataWindow .NET, EDI Tools/HIPAA, Impact, Mobility,
Replication, Sybase IQ and WorkSpace. There are Sybase Engineers involved
in these groups, so please take advantage of this opportunity to interact
with the folks responsible for the products that you use.
(*) Be sure to sign up for the mailing list for the SIGs that you are
interested in to get updated meeting information.
Communities have been set up for each group on the My.ISUG.com Members
web site. Each community has a calendar, file library, mailing list, a
news section, and the ability to do polls and surveys. You will need your
MyISUG Member login to join the community and the mailing list.
Once you're on the community page, you can click on the Join Member List
box in the upper right hand corner. To join the mailing list, click on
My Subscriptions and choose Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for
the category and the appropriate SIG name from the second drop down list.
Some of the groups are open both to ISUG members and non-ISUG members,
while others are only open to members. If you have problems accessing

links within the My.ISUG.com site.
