Okay, I will admit the title to this post is a little self-serving, maybe even 100% self-serving. But there are a lot of really good sessions planned for the upcoming CRMUG Summit in St. Louis from October 14-17.
I am listing below the sessions I am giving or involved in as a panel member. I have also listed the Academy session I am teaching on Monday the 12th.
