In 2008 at the Annual APCUG Computer Conference that had been held in the past in Las Vegas a decision was made to go to a regional concept for future conferences. By having a regional conference several times a year in various regions. It is our desire to attract user group members to these events that may not have attended the previous once a year events in Las Vegas. There have been regional events since 2009 in Chicago, Florida, Arizona and New York and Region 3 in Ohio has had the privilege to host 3 events in the past 4 years. This year Dayton, Ohio will be the site of one of the 2013 Regional conferences. It will be co hosted by DMA and NASAC the Dayton and Xenia Ohio Computer User Groups.
