Introducing Virtual Access User Groups OnlineThe time has come to create a platform that will allow Access users a way to meet virtually and discuss a wide range of topics. It is with great excitement that Ben and I introduce

Why virtual access user groups make sense

I’ve had the privilege to visit and present at Access user groups around the US, it’s a wonderful experience not many get to share: people coming together for the purpose to improve their skills in Access.  By fostering the creation of Access user groups online, not just headed by Ben and I, but anyone willing to put in the time and effort to organize and lead any kind of group,  were hoping to bring more users to the wonderful product we love and work so hard to learn.

Groups could be arranged around a language, for example, Access Latino, or a technology, SQL Server with Access. We would love to see people start groups around Access web applications and other languages or geo regions. Get started on your group by attending our first meeting!

With the help of our partner Office 365, each group of users will get up to 25 Office 365 E3 licenses to use as they please. (E3 comes with a full license to Office 2013, including Access!)

Please join us on April 8th for the inaugural meeting and learn more!

Let me know if you will be attending in the comment section on

We look forward to building a global user network with Access, please join us!
