Education Committee

Education Committee

The objective of the Education Committee is to develop, implement and monitor educational offerings, separate from annual conferences, for OAUG members.

Exhibitor Advisory Council

The Exhibitor Advisory Council (EAC)

The Exhibitor Advisory Council provides the OAUG’s exhibit management team with feedback and suggestions on OAUG conferences to better the exhibitor and attendee experience at OAUG conferences. The Council comprises experienced OAUG members from exhibiting firms that represent the diversity of the COLLABORATE Exhibitor Showcase model (crossover exhibitors, Star Partners, non-Star Partners, PeopleSoft, Database, Hyperion, etc.).

The council meets twice annually, once at Oracle OpenWorld and once at the annual COLLABORATE conference, and participates on conference calls throughout the conference planning season.

The purpose of the EAC is to provide a communication link between OAUG and its exhibitors, specifically to:

  • Review and comment on current and proposed exhibit regulations.
  • Review and comment on current and proposed practices affecting exhibitors/OAUG Associate Members.
  • Review and comment on floor plan development and layout.
  • Improve exhibitor ROI.
  • Advise ways in which the exposition could be improved, from both the exhibitors' and attendees' viewpoints.
  • Identify additional information useful to exhibitors.
  • Provide a forum for discussion of problems of mutual concern.

The EAC comprises 11 members, with two of the positions seated as Chair and Co-Chair and one as the liaison with the OAUG Board of Directors. Members serve limited tenure to ensure the continuity of programs from year to year and allow other exhibitors to participate in the future. For questions about the EAC please contact Christine Hilgert at .

Geo/SIG Committee

The Geo/SIG Committee’s objective is to serve the global interests of OAUG-affiliated groups. The committee supports international, national and regional member companies throughout the world, and strives to provide consistent quality services and support to all affiliated groups regardless of their nature or location.

The committee is a vehicle of communication for a major portion of the Oracle Applications user community. As such, the committee works with subcommittee chairs, Geo and SIG coordinators to ensure group participation in providing a forum for the many interests within the user group community.
