The group paused its activities during the pandemic, but they are back with new events, new plans, and a new organizing platform with the support of Dynamics User Group (DUG).

Malcolm and Rick also discuss the challenges of offering content that resonates with others while also working toward their goal of increasing the volume of meetings, aiming for a monthly cadence.
