A major and very critical decision date for the financial future of the HEUG will take place on August 13 at the Summer Full HEUG Board meeting. At that time I will be asking the Board to consider a fundamental change in our current Business Model that will impact each institution and individual HEUG member. I have created a video, accessible at
to give you background on why I believe this change to be necessary. Please take the time to listen to this 6 minute presentation so that you can evaluate and react to the proposal. The formal proposal is also available at that location.
Let me be clear that this is a proposal. It has been vetted through the executive team of the board and through the PAGs/TAG structure for an initial reveiw. It is not a "done-deal". This is a complex issue that needed considerable discussion within the HEUG structure and now needs your evaluation and comments. Before the Board votes, it is imperative that we have your feedback. The Board has the right and responsibility to evaluate, modify, accept or reject outright this entire proposal or any of its components.
Please use comments to this Blog as a vehicle to express your opinions in an open public forum. If you prefer to comment privately, send your comments to our Executive Director, Lew Conner, at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you. Stan
