#ODTUG Members: Here’s how to vote for the Board of Directors…

If you are a member of the Oracle Developers Tools User Group (ODTUG) you may have received an email this morning that looks like this:


There are numerous benefits to becoming a member:

  • Access to technical webinars
  • Access to files and recording
  • Fee discounts to conferences
  • Subscription to the ODTUG Technical Journal

One of the best benefit is that all members have voting power for who will sit on the ODTUG Board.  The Board is a powerful group of volunteers that controls, coordinates, and organizes the content, activities, conferences, and events for the community and its members.

“ODTUG is an independent, not-for-profit, global organization whose sole purpose is to keep you on the cutting-edge of the constantly changing technology landscape” – ODTUG Website

In essence it is a user group that is run by users, for users. The ODTUG is very near and dear to my heart as it has a lot of emphasis on EPM and the content is technical in nature.

The voting process is the way to ensure the ODTUG accurately represents the community by having the community itself elect their representatives

So, if you are member, please help ensure your voice is heard. There are 5 seats available this year. You will be able to vote for 1 to 5 candidates.

Before you do, however, take the time to review the the campaign statements for all 19 candidates  located here:   http://www.odtug.com/page/2016-nominees

One of the candidates you might see is me…. I would appreciate your vote.


When you are ready, log into the voting site located here: https://www.associationvoting.com/odtug

You will need to log in with the email address and Voter ID that you were sent in the email. If you did not receive an invitation to vote, click on the help button and request it to be resent, using the email address that’s associated with your ODTUG profile.  Again, voting is only open for ODTUG members.


Choose up to 5 candidates by selecting the box next to their picture and submit.  That’s it!   Voting closes on October 27th.


Be sure to Tweet to all your followers that you voted.   Use #Vote4Eric to help support me.

Thanks for your support and membership to the ODTUG.
