Call for Session Leaders

2020 TUG National Users Conference
Hyatt Regency New Orleans
New Orleans, Louisiana
May 12-15, 2020

Calling All Existing and Potential Session Leaders!

TUG is looking for new and existing presenters and assistants who are engaging and confident in their field and want to share their knowledge with other users.


Attendees of the TUG National Users Conference consist of a wide variety of new and experienced users of Sage 300 CRE, Sage 100 Contractor, and Sage Estimating as well as IT Professionals. These users range from Accountants, Project Managers, Estimators, Controllers, etc. Session presentations and materials should be constructed in a way that is appropriate for each session's individual audience. 


Conference sessions are interactive 90-minute educational lectures and hands-on labs that feature step-by-step learning processes and best practices that can be applied within the software. Each session should include allotted time for introductions, presentation material, question and answer session, and evaluations. At the completion of each session, attendees should be able to use the specific knowledge and skills learned to grow and develop in their field. Presentations should focus primarily on educational content and should not promote a specific company/business, product, or service.
