I am honored to be returning to the board. I want to thank all of you that took the time to cast your vote for the board this year. One of my goals is to increase the participation in this important member privilege. After all, we are charged with maintaining the excellence of the organization and shaping its future and the best way for you to be sure that we are representative of our membership is to vote.
A little background info
By the late 80’s I was working exclusively with Oracle at an E-Business Suite early adopter. Designer brought me to the first Oracle Case SIG (OCSIG) conference. I have utilized Designer to build everything from trivial applications to data warehouses to enterprise models. Awards include ODTUG Volunteer of the Year and Oracle Ace for Application Development. I am currently co-owner of Rightsizing Inc., a small consulting group.
I first served on the ODTUG board in 1990. I stepped down for a few years to make room for new blood and to concentrate on a new software spin off. I have served as treasurer and vice president and chaired many conferences. I am also very active in the Oracle Application User Group.
