AXUG Kansas (Kansas City) Chapter Meeting

When:  Aug 15, 2018 from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM (CT)

Attend this in-person learning and networking opportunity with Dynamics AX peers in your area. 

This is not your ordinary Quarterly meeting!  
We had such success with a special meeting 4th quarter of last year, we decided to do another this year!  

There will be not one, not two, but THREE presentations in this extended-format meeting!  Three organizations have come together to share information with us. We have two educational topics and one vendor showcase for an exciting and filled-to-the-brim meeting that you won't want to miss!

At a special time and place, this meeting will be an extended over-lunch meeting to allow us the time we need to not only enjoy the three engaging presentations, but also to interact with each other. 

Bring your questions with you!  There will be several provider resources available to discuss them with you, either during the meeting or afterwards.  

We will be meeting from 10:30 - 3:00 at the offices of DSI ScanworkX in the Power and Light District in Downtown Kansas City at 1201 Walnut St #1100, Kansas City, MO 64106.
Check in on the 11th floor.

Park in the Town Pavilion Parking Lot, or SP Parking, located at 1211 Walnut St. Bring your parking ticket into the building.  Enter the building on the first floor and take the first bank of elevators up to the 11th floor.  The receptionist will validate your parking ticket.

Boxed lunch will be provided.  (Please contact Jennifer Vogts with any special dietary needs.)
