The agenda for the event can be downloaded here.  SymCentral Members were recently emailed the registration link however, if you did not receive it, please email the SymCentral Board for an invite. We hope to see you all soon!

SMUG Listserv Emails

It was discovered that some recent changes to O365 were causing SMUG emails to be blocked/quarantined. We worked with our vendor and implemented changes to reduce the likelihood of this occurring however, if you’re still experiencing the issue please add “” and “” to the “Allowed Sender” list as well as release any SMUG emails in the “Quarantine” folder. If you’ve made those changes and still experiencing issues please email us at for additional support. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for patience and understanding!

SymCentral 2021 Conference Postponed!

Everyone, due to the ongoing pandemic, safety concerns, and travel restrictions the SymCentral Board unfortunately had to make the tough decision to postpone the 2021 Conference. However, we are finalizing the plans for the 2022 Conference which will be in person & still in New Orleans! We are also strongly considering some virtual events throughout the year! We miss you, please stay safe & healthy! More updates will be coming soon.
