In just a few days the price of this year's CAMUS ERP conference will rise. The user organization is holding out its early-registration price as long as possible. The conference begins Aug. 23, and early reg ends Aug. 18.

FreedayInterex used to extend its early bird deadlines in the same way. But CAMUS is better tooled for the long run, financially. The group, which has several HP 3000 experts on its board, is even taking limited training budgets into account with a Free Training Day.

That day is Aug. 23, and the place is the Hyatt Hotel SFO, near the airport. MB Foster is even sponsoring an offsite lunch. The schedule includes advice from some of the most savvy ERP experts in your community.

This meeting is for companies which are both migrating AND homesteading, according to Terry's Floyd's latest column in the Support Group's newsletter, Those Support People:

The capital AND is supposed to impart some informtion to you about the importance of covering both topics. Different [ERP] users have different ideas about when they will be leaving the platform they've used for many years.

We think there's a lot of AND planning going on in the 3000 community. Migration takes awhile, especially with a complex, house-written app. ERP is a common application among 3000s. Even if you're not using MANMAN, much of the advice delivered for free or otherwise at the Hyatt will apply.

To register for all three days (Aug. 23-25) before the prices go up, visit the CAMUS Web site by Friday night: www.camus.org. Even if your budget only allows a day away from the office and travel to Burlingame, near San Francisco, CAMUS has got something for you.
