    Sounds good to me a Local, GLOBAL group!  

    The new DAC site looks like will be easy for folks to join many local groups,   But should there be a  "USA" group or "North America" group of groups that allows users to say, I am interested in notification of any virtual group meeting happening in my country/region?

    Hi All,

    Are we looking for a new Naming convention for the LUG's? If so, I would lean towards NA (North America) to match the BC version being North American as we truly are one (US, Canada, Mexico). So NA  - BC - New York.

    If I have misinterpreted the conversation, please comment back.

    It is truly interesting how this became a full discussion.
    Recognizing that all of the Local Chapters are having a difficult time with low attendance at their virtual meetings, the Houston NAV/BC User Group Chapter held a "We're Still Here" virtual meeting with attendees from a few other Local Chapter participants to discuss how we can generate more interest in the virtual events.

    Understanding that the Local Chapters should be controlled by the User Leaders, it sent out an invite to the Local Chapter User Leaders in their contact list.  If you were not in the contact list and you are interested in participating, reply here and I will forward you the invite.  If you can't participate, we will be posting the group's suggestions after the meeting.

    I don't think there's a need to rename or rebrand the Local User Groups because Covid-19 won't restrict public gatherings forever, but in the interim we need to keep the User community connected.

    Rob,

    Ahh lightbulb!  Yes, with my 2 Chapters (NYC and Boston) we have held virtual since March 2020 and we have had attendees and have broaden the reach to include Regional or Super-Regional. I think the subject matter and topics plays a major role on attendees. I am so excited for the Fall to hopefully, get back to face-to-face.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I do like the "Region" of NA, for North America instead of US,   We have had some Victory and Vancouver BC participation in the past and would welcome Canadian participants for sure in Seattle again.

    While we are discussing Local user groups and the GLOBAL community beyond these three elements

    {Region} - {Product } - {City}
    NA  - BC - New York
    NA  - BC - Seattle


    There is also + {Language} and {TimeZone}  adding these to the name convention would group by language and timezone within the region looking something like...

    NA  - BC - eng - EST - New York 
    NA  - BC - eng - EST - Quebec 
    NA  - BC - eng - PST - Seattle 
    NA  - BC - fre - EST - Quebec 
    NA  - BC - spa - PST - Tijuana

    Through collaboration we grow.

    The first united D365UG meeting for BC/NAV Chapters will be hosted by the Great Lakes Chapter.

    Please use this link to register: https://protect-us.mimecast.com/s/xIvDCwplKZsG6jwZuVbXA9?domain=navug.com

    Or head to the Great Lakes Chapter page to register.

    Each month a different Local Chapter will coordinate an informative virtual meeting.  Look for additional postings in your particular Chapter to learn about these virtual events.

    With Dyanmicscon head lining March and Summit promising the return of in person meetings in October, we won't be scheduling united Chapter Meetings in those months.

    For those who want to save the dates, the following Chapters will be providing the content for the next 6 months:

    April 22nd - Andrea Riviezzo (Denver)

    May 20th - Jessie/Traci (Houston)

    June 22nd - Steve Chinsky (Boston)

    July 22nd - Greg Alford (Chicago)

    Aug 20th - Cliff/Suzanne (Baton Rouge)

    Sep 23rd - Kim Dallefeld (Dallas)

    All are welcome!

    Steve,

    My understanding is there is no longer an NA localization for North America in Business Central. United States, Canada and Mexico are now their own unique localizations. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/business-central/about-localization

    Steve,

    That's OK, I didn't even know this until a couple of weeks ago. Missed it somehow I guess ;-)
