Campaign Statement:

With the ODTUG board re-election here, I seek your support in continuing as your representative on the ODTUG Board of Directors. During the past four years, I have served as ODTUG’s secretary and, most recently, as vice president. During this time, my goal has been to inspire positive outcomes through identifying and developing opportunities for ODTUG within the Oracle community. My time on the board has been productive in facilitating a number of initiatives, including:

  • Establishing a BI/EPM ‘Seriously Practical’ conference in Sydney, Australia, this year
  • Creating the Online Education Committee that now consistently offers approximately two to six webinars each month
  • Establishing webinars in Spanish
  • Actively expanding ODTUG awareness outside of North America
  • Representing ODTUG at Asia Pacific Oracle User Group Community meetings
  • Representing ODTUG on various IOUC committees
  • Initiating discussions with other countries to run joint ODTUG events

It is my goal to continue working collaboratively with members of the ODTUG Board of Directors to further expand our presence beyond North America and to ensure ODTUG is well-represented and marketed—all the while, maintaining members’ needs and interests.

I understand that ODTUG exists to serve its members, and the board works tirelessly to ensure that all needs are met and effective representation is provided. In my membership of the board, I am committed to and immensely enjoy the time I spend volunteering for ODTUG.

ODTUG is the home for technologists. With your support, I will continue to promote ODTUG throughout the Asia Pacific region.
