    @David Musgrave that deserves a jaw dropping mic drop! From a user perspective, you could not have defined the differences in partners better. Cheers to everyone that continues to help us users succeed and grow! ​

    Awesome article, @David Musgrave!

    But I find it sad you had to write it.

    I think that a partner who promotes the UG's and actively participates not only increases their client's own skill and satisfaction with GP, but also increases their (the partner's) own consultant's learning and exposure to GP issues making them even more valuable consultants.

    Thanks for taking the time to write this!​

    @David Musgrave,

    Schooling us from Down Under!

    I am thankful every Chapter meeting in Wisconsin -- both in Green Bay and Milwaukee -- that we have such a fine group of Partner presenters who have been absolutely wonderful in their ​commitment to spread the word about GPUG; not to mention giving truly educational sessions to our members:

    Wipfli in Milwaukee and Green Bay
    Heartland Business Systems in Little Chute and Pewaukee
    Sikich
    DXC Technology
    Crestwood Associates
    Panatrack
    Aisling Dynamics

    They're the folks that have contributed the most, I think, to the growth in the GPUG population in Wisconsin...from about 300 in 2015 to nearly 800 today.

    Sincerely
