    Our first meeting of 2019 was very successful!  Thanks to all who attended, we had a great turnout.

    Our first order of business was to announce a change in chapter leadership.  Sarah Westberg will be stepping down to focus her attention on upcoming projects at Milton Cat (though she promises that she'll continue to attend our chapter meetings!).   Amanda Creedon from Kayem Foods has graciously volunteered to take Sarah's place, so we're in good shape going forward.

    Chris Amesbury, our new Microsoft contact, introduced himself to the group as a resource and liaison between the users and Microsoft.  He also relayed information on an upcoming event at the Microsoft office in Burlington on Saturday, January 26th.  D365 Saturday will address the challenges of delivering Dynamics 365, providing deep dives, hands on workshops, bootcamps and hackathons.  Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about this event.

    Clint McRee and Colby Young presented on the issues faced by buyers and demonstrated how Sourceday can help streamline the buyer/supplier relationship.

    Jim Sonne from RSM then showed how setup in AX2012 and D365 can be used to automate intercompany purchases and sales, and also demonstrated how dual currency reporting has been improved in D365.  Jim's Powerpoint presentation has been added to our chapter library.

    To continue to better engage our functional users the next chapter meeting, scheduled for April (date and location TBD) will have a warehouse/distribution focus.  Meeting details will be updated as they become available.

    Again, thanks to all of our speakers and attendees, and especially to Yoli at Microsoft for making sure we had everything we needed!

    Hope to see you all at our next meeting.

    Hi Alison,
    Please let me know if you are in need of any content for the Warehouse/distribution April meeting. This is an area I spend a lot of time in and would be interested in presenting or just attending with one of my clients.

    Thanks
    Drew
