MTUG Events

Wed., Mar. 21, 2018, 4:30 to 6:30pm

Location: The Gin Mill above the Riverfront BBQ, 300/302 Water Street, Augusta


MTUG gathered for an evening of refreshments and learning! The evening featured a brief “Tech Spotlight” presentation, “The Maine OPA – Consumer Advocates in an Age of Net Uncertainty” with Liz Wyman, Senior Counsel, State of Maine Office of the Public Advocate. Ms. Wyman gave an overview of the OPA’s role in consumer advocacy, and will briefly explore the status and ambiguity of Net Neutrality policy and how Maine and other states are attempting to mitigate negative consequences for consumers.

In addition, MTUG discussed the final events in MTUG’s 2017-18 educational season, including the 2018 I.T. Summit & Tradeshow coming this May.

MTUG’s "Peers & Beers" events are a chance for IT professionals and enthusiasts to network in an informal setting while learning about a unique technology topic. They are usually held 4 times each year in locations across Maine.

MTUG extends a huge thanks to Consolidated Communications for co-sponsoring this Peers & Beers program!
