COVID-19 Update
CTUG Fall Conference Postponed

Each year the CTUG board looks forward to hosting the CTUG Fall Conference. It is an wonderful opportunity to bring the Canadian HP NonStop User community together to a couple of days of learning, networking and, of course, socializing!

Normally at this time, we would be announcing registration dates and finalizing the schedule. Unfortunately, due to ongoing social distancing guidelines and travel restrictions, and for the health and safety of our members, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Fall Conference until the Spring of 2021. We are currently considering dates in May 2021 and will make an announcement once the new dates are finalized.

The CTUG Board is also investigating the possibility of scheduling a remote technical update on Wednesday September 23, 2020 (the day the physical conference was scheduled) which Vendors and Members can join in remotely.

Please check back in the coming weeks for the revised Spring 2021 dates and for updates on the remote technical update in September.

CTUG is a Not-for-Profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of the NonStop user community in Canada. CTUG is the community’s recognized advocate to Hewlett Packard Canada, and also for many years has been closely linked into the international community through a long-standing affiliation with ITUG.
