In May 2009, MVPs Jeff Schertz, Mike Stacy, and Dustin Hannifin, along with a few members of the OCS product group, formed a virtual user group dedicated to Microsoft Unified Communications. All meetings are held virtually using Microsoft Live Meeting. The first UCVUG meeting was held in May with 20 people in attendance. In the past few months, over 100 people have downloaded the recording from the first meeting. The next UCVUG meeting will be held on August 20th at 2PM Eastern (-5 GMT). The registration link is posted on the UCVUG homepage.
MVP Joachim Farla has also launched UCVUG.nl a user group in the Netherlands. The two groups collaborate to provide UC activities with a global reach.
