Great meeting! It was mentioned that there is a Power Apps "App in a day" course similar to Power BI "Dashboard in a Day". Is there a schedule for those? Any coming to the Edina office in the near future?

Wisconsin Dells April 16th-17th Level Up Event - Registration is Live!

We're finally ready, registration is live!

Register Here: https://pages.dynamiccommunities.com/communitybuildingwi#level_up

Some neat things to be aware of:
1. Yes, this is a separate registration page from the usual place you go to register for Minnesota Chapter meetings.
2. You do not have to set up a profile page or log in or anything to register for the  Read more...meeting. It is totally open to anyone. We're encouraging people that aren't even GPUG members to join us in Wisconsin Dells April 16 & 17. We just need your first & last names, your Company name, and your email address. That's it.
3. This event has three no-cost benefits:
1. NO REGISTRATION FEE! We wanted to keep this event free, just as our quarterly Chapter meetings are free.
2. THREE FREE MEALS! GPUG and our event sponsors are footing the bill for lunch on Thursday, April 16th; and breakfast and lunch on Friday, April 17th.
3. FREE PARKING! The parking lot at the Ho-Chunk Casino Hotel in Wisconsin Dells is huge! It's a 56-acre property and you will have no trouble finding a parking spot.
4. The Ho-Chunk Casino Hotel is offering attendees a very good guest room rate on Thursday night, April 16th: only $89 (plus hotel taxes). The rooms have been renovated within the last three or four years. When you register, use the Book ID 10926 to get the best rate. Steve Erbach stayed in the hotel on Feb. 11th in the lowest cost room and got:
1. King-size pillow top bed
2. Mini-fridge
3. Microwave oven
4. 4-cup coffee maker
5. Ironing board & iron
6. In-room safe
7. Big-screen TV
8. Rainfall showerhead
9. Pull-out computer desk
10. Black-out curtains
This event can be very inexpensive. Your boss shouldn't have too much trouble justifying it in your company budget!

We're pulling together the roster of speakers to fill the 18 separate sessions in two tracks: GP and Power BI/Power Platform. Rest assured, you will see speakers that are totally worth your time!

So register on the Level Up! Midwest page. Remember, no GPUG membership required! No profile or login required! And, man! This is a heck of a value! We'll see you on April 16 & 17 in Wisconsin Dells!

How can I get added to the PowerBI user group meeting? I thought I had signed up for the 12/16 meeting but when I arrived it had been cancelled. I would love to attend a future event.

Hi Justin, for all meetings there will be a registration button on the event itself. We post the link on the main community page. That is also where we posted about yesterday's cancellation. I am sorry you did not see the message and showed up at Microsoft. We hope you can attend the next meeting in February which will get posted after the New Year.
