As President of the National Association of Sigma Users (NASU), it is my privilege to welcome you to our website. The NASU website is maintained primarily for the benefit of our members. The National Association of Sigma Users is an organization of over 30 diverse institutions from across the country. The primary objective of the our organization is to advance the effective utilization of Sigma Systems software products and associated technology by promoting the free interchange of information
Throughout 2007-08, NASU will acknowledge and celebrate its 25th anniversary as an organization. NASU’s “birthday” will receive special attention during our annual summer conference. This year’s conference will be held July 22- 25, at The Brown Hotel located in historic Louisville, Kentucky and I hope that you will make plans to attend.
NASU provides a plethora of opportunities for participation and I hope that you will take advantage of them. The NASU Listserve is a great forum for problem resolution, discovering new ideas and keeping in touch with issues faced by other NASU members. Our annual summer conference is an excellent way for you to meet other members, establish new networks, and discover new, or in many cases, improved ways of using the Sigma software. For our new members we have an Ambassador/Mentor program that matches new NASU members with other like type institutional members in order to assist in acclimating new members with the NASU organization. Our Executive Board is charged with taking care of the business aspects of the organization as well organizing and planning our annual conference, assisting Sigma with product enhancements, membership, board nominations and to assist any NASU members with questions or concerns. Because our organization is based on voluntary participation, we are only as strong as our members so I would challenge you to become involved with NASU and consider serving on the NASU Board.
I would like to thank our current and past board members for their contributions to NASU and especially our Past President, Sherita Tyler for all of her hard work to benefit our members over the last two years. Their hard work and dedication to NASU is the glue that holds NASU together. I greatly appreciate your efforts.
Best wishes for a productive 2008, and I look forward to seeing you throughout the year.
