CalConnect’s first conference was held in January 2005 so the upcoming 32nd conference will be our tenth anniversary meeting – and we’re planning a celebration!
At CalConnect XXXI, hosted by Youcanbook.me in Bedford, United Kingdom, Mike Douglass of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute was honored as our 5th recipient of the Distinguished Service Award.
Mike became active in CalConnect in 2005 when Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute joined CalConnect, and has remained intensely involved ever since. He is an engaged participant and presenter at CalConnect conferences. He has attended every event RPI joined CalConnect, save for one he reluctantly missed while recuperating from major surgery – but he did call in when he could!
CalConnect welcomes Burbio as a member of the Calendaring and Scheduling Consortium. Burbio, based in Pelham, New York, offers a calendar sharing and synchronization platform built for local communities such as suburban towns.
CalConnect held its thirtieth Interoperability Test Event and Conference (formerly “Roundtable”) the week of May 19-23, hosted by AOL at their facility in Dulles, Virginia.
The week led off with the Interoperability test Event on Monday, which had 12 participants from 9 organizations onsite. On Wednesday afternoon, the Conference opened with a very productive workshop about calendaring & scheduling in health care, which included 21 participants from 8 non-member organizations in addition to the regular conference attendees.
