Are you interested in meeting other Acumatica users in your area, maybe even forming a local Acumatica User Group?
I recently attended the local Acumatica User Group in Denver, Colorado and experienced first-hand the power of a local gathering.
Even with a Cloud ERP product like Acumatica, available from anywhere, we humans still have a need to connect with other people in person locally.
In order to facilitate the formation of local Acumatica User Group gatherings, AUG Forums now has an AUG Local field that members can self populate.
The AUG Local field will help you find other Acumatica users in your area.
To populate the AUG Local field, this is all you need to do:
1. Login to AUG Forums (click here) using your Facebook, Google, or LinkedIn account. If you don’t already have an account, one will be created for you automatically.
2. Go to My Info > My Account (click here) and populate the AUG Local field.
Note: If your city isn’t listed, contact me (click here) and I’ll get it added to the list.
3. Don’t forget to press the SAVE CHANGES button on the bottom of the My Account page (click here).
That’s it, you’re done!
Keep in mind that the AUG Local field is public so anyone on the internet can see it. They can also see the other fields marked (Public) on your My Account page (click here).
Here are the Users who have populated the AUG Local field so far:
Click a City to see all Users in that City.
Click a Username to go to their profile where you can use the Send a Message button in the upper right-hand corner to send them a private message.
And here’s a summary of Users by City

I also thought it would be cool to show the AUG Local and Display Name data fields on a map so I’m including that here. You can zoom in using your mouse scroll or by double-clicking. Hover over a bubble to see the people in that city. I have to refresh the map manually unfortunately so you won’t see yourself until next time I do the refresh.
More Details About Local Acumatica User Groups
When local Acumatica User Groups form officially, they are typically formed as a Nonprofit organization with a Board of Directors, Bylaws, and other official legal stuff. They have their own rules about membership.
The AUG Local field is merely a way for AUG Members to self-identity themselves in a certain geographical area showing that they are interested in joining a local Acumatica User Group. Populating the AUG Local field does not automatically make you a member of a local Acumatica User Group. There is no official relationship between AUGForums.com and local Acumatica User Group organizations.

Note that there is no official relationship between us here at AUGForums.com and the folks at AcumaticaUserGroup.com, but we do stay in touch and both websites have the goal of serving the Acumatica User Community. AUGForums.com only does online interaction while AcumaticaUserGroup.com mainly focuses on in-person events.
