The past 4 IIUG Informix Conferences have been a great success and have proved to be the best Informix Conferences in history!.
I have been working with Informix for 20+ years and still have the same passion and energy for the product! I am excited at some of the recent happenings with Informix both inside and outside of IBM. I would love to have your vote so I may continue to serve the Informix community! Thank you.

Jean Georges Perrin, Strasbourg, France
Informix must be recognized as the most flexible and reliable database on the market - a leader in data management. My role on the IIUG board is to make this vision reality. Through a new website, a fresh PR campaign and more, IIUG will actively promote Informix as the ideal data tool.
I began using Informix in 1997 with Four J's where I focused on end-user experience. An IIUG board member since 2002, France's first IBM Champion, and CEO of ISV GreenIvory (with Informix-dependent technology), I bring 15+ years experience in software development and 10+ years managing high-technology projects in international environments. Your support is critical to move Informix to the next level of recognition.

Through contacts with the user group, she has learned many useful tidbits about Informix that weren't written in any manuals and, whenever possible she, shares this information as the Web Content Manager. Kate is also the User Advocate - which includes collecting lists on new features users would like to see in the next release, as well as a list of vendors that need "encouragement" to upgrade to version 11 and beyond of Informix.

New Nominees Running For Election

Matthew Elders, TX, USA
I have been working with Informix since 2002 and I am currently serving on the Conference Planning Committee for the IIUG conference in San Diego. I believe that IIUG is here to help the day to day Informix users around the world do our job better. We all rely on each other to help get through our tough times and to celebrate our successes. I can't count how many times I've gotten out of a jam by searching the forums or pinging an old colleague to bounce ideas off of. The IIUG is the primary vehicle that many of us take to share our information and ideas, and I feel like it's time for me to give back to this community that I've taken so much from. I feel that my generation of DBAs needs to step up and take the gauntlet of being not only technological leaders, but organizational leaders as well; and I would be honored to represent the membership of IIUG on this board.
Rhonda Hackenburg, Harrisburg, PA, USA
Rhonda has been working with Informix products for 23 years. In her current position as Research and Development Manager, she was instrumental in influencing her organization to continue with Informix after the IBM acquisition.

Rhonda would be honored to be a member of the IIUG Board and will apply her enthusiasm and commitment to ensure Informix remains a viable product of the IBM portfolio.
