Natalie Delemar Takes on New Role Within ODTUG Natalie Delemar has been a volunteer with ODTUG since 2008, holding various roles such as Hyperion SIG secretary, EPM/BI content chair, and ODTUG Kscope conference chair. She recently completed a four-year tenure as president of ODTUG.
We're excited to announce her new role with ODTUG as the Oracle Liaison, which will benefit from her wealth of knowledge and dedication.
"On behalf of myself and the whole Board of Directors, we add our thanks to Natalie for her decade (and counting) of service to the ODTUG community," says Tim German. "Over this time she has worked to develop deep relationships with, and an understanding of, both our membership and our Oracle partners. I'm thrilled that we can continue to benefit from that experience after the conclusion of Natalie's term as president and director, and I'm grateful that she is willing to continue to serve our community in this new role."
