2017 Sponsors

Without the support of our dedicated sponsors, the Summit conference would not be possible.
Thank you for supporting the GPUG community.

Summit 2017 Sponsors

Every year, thousands of conversations take place in the GPUG online communities, at chapter meetings, and during our educational conferences. We are proud of our community members and recognize those who go above and beyond to serve their Dynamics GP peers. The following annual awards were announced and presented to deserving recipients at GPUG Summit Nashville:

GPUG All Star Awards

The highest award given to our GPUG community, the All Star Award program recognizes GPUG members who have a passion for Dynamics GP and have made significant contributions of their time and expertise to the GPUG community. Once recognized, members continue to be All-Stars, it's not a one-year only award. They are All-Stars forever!

Congratulations to the 2017 GPUG All-Star Recipients:

Bert Green, Berger Transfer & Storage, Inc.

Steve Burney, Nissan Trading Corporation Americas

Leslie Vail, Accounting Systems Consulting, Inc.

Chapter Awards

As always, we listen and appreciate what our members have to say.  In an effort to reflect the fact that in most Chapters there is not a single individual leading the Chapter, we have made a change.  Going forward we will offer two award recognitions per User Group. Awards will be based on the size of the Chapter and the percentage of attendance at the meetings as well as the involvement of the Chapter Leaders to drive content, promotion and attendance.

Congratulations to the 2017 GPUG Chapter Award Recipients:

GPUG South Carolina (Charleston)

GPUG Wisconsin (Green Bay)

Richard Whaley Academy Award

Richard Whaley was an author and publisher, long time GPUG Member, GPUG All Star, and well-respected Academy instructor, who selflessly contributed countless hours of his time and talents to his GPUG Academy students. Whaley passed away July 1, 2014, and this award was created to honor Richard by carrying on his legacy. An award in Richard's honor is a way for GPUG and the community to recognize others who have been influenced by his example.

The Richard Whaley Academy Award 2017 recipients are:

Instructor: Rod O'Connor, owner Briware Solutions, Inc. and Business Solutions MVP

Student: Wendy Kennedy, Financial Affairs Budget & Systems Manager at Wilmington University
GPUG Professional Certificates include: GP Administration, GP Business Intelligence

Gemstone Awards

As a volunteer, you play a vital role in building a strong and valuable GPUG community. You will earn points for each volunteer activity you contribute during the annual program year (September 1 - August 31). The more you participate - the more points you earn! 

GPUG wants to thank you for your contributions to the community by recognizing your commitments. Please note, while everyone can earn points only GPUG User Members will receive recognition. 

GPUG User Members are recognized at three award levels; Sapphire, Ruby and Emerald based on their contributions to GPUG during the recognition year (September 1 - August 31), and GPUG Partner Members are recognized at one award level; Granite.

Gemstone award winners will be recognized at Summit each year.
