Kind words from our Members...Our company goal was to "stay ahead of the curve" as we came out of the recession and with the support of EMC, we were able to make this happen. EMC is our foundation for growth, as we continue to utilize their experience and networking capabilities, so that we may excel beyond into the future." EMC Member
The "discussions" are most valuable; sometimes to realize what we need to do and other times to be assured that where we are is leading the way. EMC Member
Even if I bring one improvement back that we can use or modify to fit our process is a win-win for us. The SIG process in itself is value added and EMC membership fee is a small price to pay for a year of available knowledge and a network of sources that can be tapped into long after the SIG.

I thought it was interesting that all the original ideas 'we' came up with today are the core ideas and history of success of EMC. Yet 'we' couldn't 'get it' until the ideas became 'ours'. EMC Member
