Our Mission

Our mission for the Midwest Lotus User Group Conference is to bring together and help build the IBM collaboration technology community throughout the Midwest region of the United States.

The Midwest Lotus User Group Conference is hosted by a different city each year allowing each community to showcase their city, technology, and design.
