Plans for 2018!

  • Meetings that are more "workshop oriented", so you can have "hands on" and learn by doing! We are planning our 2018 calendar and will announce meeting plans on this web site, and in our social media.
  • Hot topics you have asked for will be the focus on many meetings and workshops - DevOps and ITIL, emerging complementary standards, Agile, real world" ITIL implementation, and more!
  • For those of you that need to maintain continuing education credits, we will continue to provide PDU credits for attending LIG meetings. 
  • More interaction in meetings, adding a "Roundtable Discussion" at the end of every meeting.
  • More presentations from customers, and fewer from vendors - so you can hear real-world examples of how other companies or organizations have implemented ITSM!
  • Several meetings with partner organizations- HDI, PMI, AITP, to name a few. We feel this will liven the discussions, and the overall learning experience!
  • We will also be participating in SoTEC again!
