2015 GMIS Live!
January 22 - Email Platforms, Tools & Technologies
GMIS Live! is our new online platform for a roundtable type discussion with other GMIS members. Our inaugural event will be a discussion on email platforms, tools and technologies. There will be no presentations from vendors. No one will be on the line to try to tell you why their platform is better than the other guys but rather, a conversation about email.We’ll ask a few questions to get the ball rolling and the discussion will be moderated by a GMIS International board member, but really, it’ll be open season for what ever you want to talk about around email.
Join the discussion as it continues on the Forum: http://www.gmis.org/forums/Default.aspx
