    It was a great meeting.  If you made you know, if you missed it, we missed you!!

     We had great speakers and they were well received.

    Manish Bansal of Fifth Square gave a "Strategic thinking for executive dashboards (or operational dashboards).  He opened a lot of eyes with his approach to creating usable SMART dashboards and ways to evaluate if you got it right.

    The review of new features in the latest release such as the decomposition tree was impressive.

    The tip on creating your own data connector for resources you may use that doesn't have a canned one for Power BI was cool.
