In Florida….we have an annual I know in the mid-west, there is a similar event, but your user group is crafted by you , for you. If you have a great idea, let your leader know if you haven’t joined….Boston has a HUGE users group with hundreds of attendees. OTHER Ugs have just a few people. Remember. I found my best hire ever in a UG meeting with less than 15 people. It was a life changer and gave my team the momentum it needed to succeed.
These meetings are a great way to: connect with other users, hone your Salesforce.com chops, meet your next employee, find your next Salesforce.com-related gig, ask that question you have about that feature or tactic you're dying to use....Pretty powerful stuff!

Recap the Keynote Message and Highlights of the EventSalesforce Touch – YESChatter for Communities and Partner Portal - DEMOChatterbox
What an incredible story and a great example of connecting employees, connecting customers, partners and products in incredible new ways.Personally, I love flying Virgin. They do an amazing job to make sure I have an incredible experience. And one of the ways they do that is that they're leveraging Chatter. They're leveraging Chatter to collaborate amongst those employees, to figure out how to create that fun experience that you saw in the video.
