COVID-19 Update

VMUG is Here for You!

The world is facing a lot of uncertainty. More people are working, learning, and socializing from home than ever. In light of this circumstance, your VMUG peers will always be here for you virtually. We are a community – prepared to provide a place for you to connect with fellow IT enthusiasts, wherever you are.


COVID-19 Update

Effective immediately: VMUG asks you to follow local guidance when meeting in person. As always, VMware is encouraged to be part of local VMUG meetings and can do so in accordance with their local policies. VMUG encourages all local meetings to consider adding a virtual element to be inclusive of all community members who are unable to meet in person.

We understand the COVID-19 situation changes daily. For in-person local gatherings, we ask that you please follow the current CDC and WHO guidelines and adhere to the guidance for gathering in groups, which would require prevention supplies, operations staff, and additional resources. 

The VMware User Group was built on the foundation of community. Meeting in-person is a valuable activity for our members and a priority for the organization. We are eager to host in-person meetings again where health and safety permits.  

We encourage VMUG members to continue connecting. VMUG local groups are offering hybrid meetings and the VMUG team has an abundance of online offerings. Read more below to say connected with the VMUG community.
