Ok, what’s with this theme about Teamwork anyway?
Our Sponsors have invested in this Chapter so we can continue to support our Students, provide excellent venues and speakers, and make our Data Center industry a lot better connected.
Take a look at who’s supporting this Chapter. Please thank them for their support. More importantly, we hope you contact them when you need consultation, engineering, or equipment services.
Our Board Members are ‘all-in’, ensuring we attempt to provide the best possible experiences for our guests. Those of us on the Board help select venues, speakers, subjects, themes, manage our budgets, award Scholarships to our Students. They are a great team!
As I’ve said many times, the success of this Chapter all boils down to a few simple things…
- Programming…we are committed to bringing you relevant topics that are not sales pitches, topics that are attractive to our target audience: our Data Center End Users
- Participant Experience…we strive to create a friendly atmosphere, good food and good locations, where our End Users can hopefully glean a few takeaways to apply to their own operations, as well as get connected with our local Vendors and Contractors
- Connecting with Schools and Students…we continue to make outreach efforts with Metro State College of Denver, Colorado School of Mines, and CU Boulder. These kids are our future, and we are making inroads to creating their awareness of our great industry.
Once again, THANK YOU to our Sponsors for ENABLING THIS TEAMWORK ENVIRONMENT!! Without you, none of this happens. The venues, the food, the Golf Tournament, the Scholarships. THANK YOU for your support.
