User Group Meeting
Subject:        TracNet User Group Meeting
                        May 30 – June 1, 2013
                        Monterey, California

Dear TracNet System User,

     We have been busy modifying the TracNet components with numerous new features and enhancements.  We thank all of our client agencies staff for their input and suggestions.  Most of the enhancements and new features were developed from user comments and suggestions.  TracNet considers user input of paramount importance in developing new features and system enhancements.

    We are hosting a 2013 TracNet User Group Meeting on May 30, 31 2013 in Monterey.  We recommend the Chief/Sheriff and TracNet system records Manager attend. We will seek input on desired future TracNet system enhancements as while providing an overview of enhancements in new releases. This meeting will also provide time to get answers to your specific questions and talk with other system users.

   We have again obtained a special government rate at the Portola Hotel & Spa in Monterey ($84 single and $114 double) and included the hotel information with the agenda.  The details of the User Group Meeting are attached.  I hope we will see you there!
