Survey – Local Networking User Groups: Your Input Requested

Are you part of a networking user group in your area? Would you care to share that info with others? I’m compiling a list to share with the readership, so I’d love to hear from you via e-mail to or the comments section below. All corners of the globe are encouraged to respond, and vendor-specific user groups are certainly fine as well.

Please include as much of the following information as you can. TIA!

  • Name of the user group.
  • Geographic area served.
  • Group leader contact information.
  • URL.
  • Mailing list, Google group, other ways of staying in touch with group members.
  • Location and frequency of meetings.
  • Technology and/or vendors typically covered.
  • Anything else you feel would be helpful.

    We (Chesapeake NetCraftsmen) hold monthly “CMUG” presentations in the Baltimore area, except in the summer.  (Cisco Mid-Atlantic User Group.) Mostly Cisco topics, attendance runs 50-100 or so. We used to also do Washington DC, and would love to do so again, but we tried various locations including Herndon and turnout was generally light. 

    See to sign up for emails about upcoming events.

      I’m a member of CMUG but can’t attend meetings because I live near Charlottesville, VA. Would love something in central VA area.

    There are none in Toronto. Would love to see one. It’s a huge city with Cisco’s Canadian headqurters located here

      Hey Shane,

      I run the San Diego group. You should really come down. More people have been coming out to the meetings. If you have any ideas you can shoot them my way

    We have a Cisco user group in the Nashville,TN area that meets monthly. There are 2 URL’s I would recommend using:

    1. InformIT User Group List –
    2. CiscoPress Cisco User Group List –

    I can’t guarantee the group listings on either site will be the most current, but it is a start for finding one in your local area. Cisco Press, Wiley, and O’Reilly all have programs where they will send complimentary books to give out at user group meetings.

    If you have a local user group that interests you, I strongly recommend you attend. I’ve built numerous local relationships through the Nashville Cisco User Group over the years.

    Tulsa, OK has a local Cisco group, newly formed, Tulsa Cisco Users Group. First meeting next month, I believe. LinkedIn group is how to access information currently. The person that started that group is Joe Ramirez.We also have a Tulsa IT Pros group that meets on a monthly basis and covers various topics. Meets at Oklahoma State University-Tulsa campus.Tim Vander Kooi is the ones that manages the LinkedIn group for that one. You can also hit, but they are just trying to get that website rolling, LinkedIn is much better to get info on that group at the moment.
