OAUG Hyperion SIG - Leadership Update

Board of Directors
While I was taking a break from blogging, the OAUG Hyperion SIG held elections for its board of directors. Some of them have been previously announced here, but congratulations go out to the following full list of people:
  • SIG Coordinator, Kristin Newman
  • Programs and Education Coordinator, Doreen Fox-Dwyer from Hess
  • Marketing Coordinator, Julie Jacobs from Titan-Pinnacle
  • Communications Coordinator, Todd Rebner from AdvancedEPM
  • Secretary, Todd Randolph from Optimum
  • HUG Coordinators, Angela Slayton from HealthMarkets & Mark West from P3
  • Partner Liaison, Suzanne Hoffman
  • Domain Lead Coordinator, Cathy McCain from Lockheed
I still think the OAUG Hyperion SIG Board of Directors has too many partners/vendors and not enough customers, but with Doreen, Angela, and Cathy, they're making strides in the right direction.

Domain Leads
I'd congratulate the Domain Leads, but most of their terms expire at OpenWorld in a couple of days. So if you'd like to be a domain lead, now's your chance. The OAUG Hyperion SIG is soliciting leads for the following areas:
  • Essbase
  • Hyperion Planning
  • Strategic Finance
  • Crystal Ball
  • HFM & Enterprise
  • Financial Data Quality Management
  • Data Relationship Management (formerly MDM)
  • Infrastructure
  • Data Integration (HAL, DIM, ODI, EPMA, etc.)
They'll be taking nominations until October 19 and they're really looking for customer experts in those areas. If you want to do your part to help the Hyperion and Oracle EPM community, e-mail cathy.l.mccain (at) lmco.com to request a nomination form.
