Herndon, VA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/07/2006 --The National AMS Users’ Group’s (NAUG) Eleventh Annual Conference is heading north for 2006. For the first time ever, the conference will be held in the Chicago-area. On October 18-20, the group will take over the Doubletree Hotel in Arlington Heights, Illinois to discuss Q™ and other gomembers’ association management solutions. The underlying theme of this technology conference, “Sweet Home Chicago,” is the Chicago blues.

On Wednesday morning, before the conference begins, Gloria McCarthy from WorkShop! in Louisville, Kentucky will lead a three-hour session on creative thinking and problem solving. The conference itself will kick off with lunch and a welcome by NAUG President, Mark Lowry from Refrigeration Service Engineers Society. gomembers will provide a product update, including information on Q™ and Great Plains. Next customers will have the opportunity to shape the future of Q with an ideas session. The afternoon ends with a keynote speaker to be announced at a later date.

Thursday is a full conference day of breakout sessions. The topics cover data entry, reporting/data mining, membership, meetings/exhibits, and commerce transactions.

In addition, there will be a special session covering how to prepare for a Q migration – presented by current Q customers and an association management speaker. It is a good opportunity to ask questions. The evening will be capped off with dinner and dancing in downtown Chicago.

The last day of the conference will focus on test plans and development plus website usability. A post-conference self-guided tour is scheduled for the Field Museum, Planetarium, and the Shedd Aquarium.
