NAVUG Regional Chapters: The Ideal Way to Collaborate with Your Local Dynamics NAV Community
If you're a member of or familiar with the NAV User Group (NAVUG), then you know what a beneficial resource it is. But did you know that NAVUG also has Regional Chapters all over the country? These Chapters are an integral part of NAVUG and provide members with the option to connect with other NAV users in their geographic area. This face-to-face sharing of Dynamics NAV knowledge, analyzing best practices through presentations, interactive discussions and networking, is invaluable in helping optimize business effectiveness.
Regional Chapters are set up and operated according to the needs of their members. For example, some chapters meet monthly for a few hours, while others meet at an office for 1/2 day --the choice is yours. NAVUG provides guidelines, tools and scheduling support, and NAV users contribute their time and ideas.
"NAVUG members want to collaborate locally and are organizing chapters in strategic markets to connect, learn, and share with one another," said Onika Allen, NAVUG Regional Chapter Director. "I look forward to working with the NAV community to strengthen its chapter offerings. You'll find out how great these opportunities can be!"
Interest continues to grow, with talk of ChicagoLand, New York, New Jersey, and New England Chapters, as well as the inaugural meeting this month of the Northern California (NorCal) Chapter. At present, the PacWest chapter is also looking for someone to fill the position of chairperson.
Onika continues that it is NAVUG's preference that the Regional Chapters form organically. If a number of NAV users in a geographic area have have an interest in getting a chapter going, she strongly encourages them to contact her at email@example.com. To learn more about Regional Chapters, read this short document from NAVUG.
If you're involved with NAV and want to help organize a regional chapter, you need to first become a a member of NAVUG. With new chapters forming and NAVUG Summit coming up in October, now is a great time to sign up.

Calling all NAV users in New York, New Jersey, and New England!
