Helping members connect to each other and HP resources was
our goal at HP Discover in Las Vegas, June 11-13, 2013. If you didn’t make it
to the conference, we hope you’ll consider the same
opportunities to get linked now.
Link to Local
Chapters and Special Interest Groups
Over 100 HP Software customers and partners volunteer their
time to lead local chapters and worldwide virtual special interest groups (SIG).
Leaders from around the world gathered at HP Discover to represent their groups
and discuss the latest HP Software developments and game-changing technologies.
There are 74 local chapters in 26 countries and 13 virtual
SIGs. Each chapter and SIG has its own personality and focus. Members of local
chapters meet face to face to share best practices, tips, and tricks; members of
SIGs meet online and can participate in group blogs and webinars. Locate your chapter and SIGs of choice and select the
"Join group” icon which will appear at the top of the group page if you aren’t

Link to the Board of
Directors and Staff
Nine outstanding members and thought leaders serve on the Board of Directors. They
met face to face for two days prior to HP Discover to discuss the state of the
user community and programs to serve members going forward. Many of the
dedicated staff attended HP
Discover as well. If you didn’t get a chance to meet them in person, feel free
to contact them anytime.
We hope to see as many members as possible at future events.
Mark your calendar for HP Discover in Barcelona, Spain, December 10-12, 2013. We are
already working on our community program. It is our mission to help fellow
members tap into the wealth of collective knowledge in Vivit, the trusted,
unbiased, and field-tested HP Software user community. If you have any
suggestions or requests, please contact us.
