Chapter News

CTUG

Every year, for the past 25 years, a technical event is held in Canada by a group called CTUG (Canadian Tandem Users Group).  Originally,  the purpose of the event was to learn and get updated on Tandem technology. As the years past CTUG became a Chapter of Connect, the membership grew as attendees, not only gathered knowledge but met many new friends and contacts.

The event was expanded to two days, Day 1 consisted of technical sessions, food,  and a cocktail get-together in the evening.  Day 2 consisted of a full day of education. We were fortunate enough to secure many top-quality speakers, including Jimmy Treybig himself.  As Connect is, we are heavily supported by not only HPE but also extremely valued Partners who contribute to our success.  Most years the conference is a sellout.

Unfortunately, COVID interrupted the yearly event, this year is the second year we have had to cancel.

In the absence of the yearly attended user group meeting,  we held a virtually attended session on June 23rd.  In order to get quality presentations, we secured content and speakers from  HPE, Comforte, XYPRO and CSP. The recorded ZOOM session was a success. We had over 30 attendees who attended live, and over 35 replays of the recorded session on YOUTUBE. The next ZOOM session is scheduled for late October. Please check the CTUG website (www.ctug.ca) for details which will be available in the near future
