Ohio North SQL Server User Group


The annual user group officer elections were held at our last meeting. The following people are your 2018-2019 officers. If you get a chance please thank them for their time and service to the user group. I do believe they accept free food and drink at Applebees.

The user group doesn't maintain itself and without volunteers like these that are gracious with their time, the user group would essentially stop:

President - Luis Gonzalez, 2nd term

Vice President - Cleveland - Eric Blinn, 1st term

Vice President - Akron - Hasan Savran, 1st term

Secretary - Lisa Bohm, 2nd term

Treasurer - Tim Cepelnik, we lost count


Our user group meets in two different locations at different times of the month. The meetings between locations have different topics so you can certainly attend both.

The first Tuesday of every month from 5PM-7:30PM at the Microsoft office in Independence.
Microsoft Corporation, 6050 Oak Tree Blvd., Suite 300, Independence, OH 44131

The third Tuesday of every month from 6PM-8:30PM at the Drips office location in Akron. There is a  large parking garage on South High Street directly across from the Akron Art Museum. You may also be able to find parking on the street.
Drips, Inc., 24 N High St., Akron, OH 44308

Our Independence meetings follow the schedule below:
5:00PM - 6:00PM: Prerecorded Video presentation from last year's SQL PASS Summit
6:00PM - 6:15PM: Announcements & Introductions
6:15PM - 7:30PM: Live Speaker Feature Presentation
