Dear Members,

Nominations for the Advisory Groups closes today! Don't miss out on this opportunity to be part of an Advisory Group.

The HEUG has 17 Advisory Groups and they currently include members from over 100 HEUG institutions from all over the world. To see a current list of Advisory groups and their members, click here. The most important functions of the advisory groups are bulleted below and detailed in the Advisory Group charter, which you can download here.

  • Facilitating communication about specific product features, problems, and opportunities.
  • Soliciting feedback from the user community, synthesizing that feedback, and conveying it to Oracle product strategists and developers.
  • Advocating to Oracle, on behalf of the user community, for enhancements, new functionality, and resolutions to problems.
  • Administering the relevant track(s) at the annual Alliance Conference (i.e., soliciting, evaluating and selecting proposals, scheduling sessions, collecting feedback, etc.)

Membership in an Advisory Group provides an opportunity for you to serve the global membership of the HEUG by sharing your experience and expertise. You will have an impact on product design and development priorities, the chance to assist in creation of education programs to help members understand new technology and deployment options, and the opportunity to enhance your own professional development. We are looking for individuals that have specific product knowledge/experience and that can provide a strategic vision for input into future product planning. These individuals must be willing and able to commit to monthly conference calls, an annual two-day Summit preceding the Alliance Conference, and other assignments to support the work of the Advisory Groups. Terms will begin in March 2016 and run for three years

You have until September 26, 2016 to nominate yourself or someone else. To submit a nomination, please click here. Please be sure and fill out the form completely. 

Please note that in order for you to be selected on an advisory group, your institution needs to be a HEUG Institutional or System member. Not sure of your institutions membership status? You can find your membership status on your group profile page; select "My Group" from the "My Options" dropdown menu on the upper right side of any page on HEUG.Online.  Any questions please contact us at
