Welcome to VanTUG

Created as the Vancouver NT Users Group in 1996, the group changed it's name to the Vancouver Technology User Group in 2002.  -   VanTUG is over 20 years old!.   Since VANTUG's inception, the interest from the membership has been centered around learning both about the newer technologies as well as to seek out other members that may have knowledge to share. Many members have developer, IT Pro, database or Office certifications providing access to a wide range of personal networking opportunities.

The group focuses primarily on those topics and technologies that are of interest to IT pros. The hunger for information and knowledge sharing will always be there and VANTUG has played, and will continue to play, an important role in facilitating this.  We thank our Sponsors and Patrons who continue to support our events.  Vantug is a volunteer organization and we thank all the volunteers that make our events successful.  It is amazing how many people pitch in along the way to keep us moving forward. 

We are always seeking additional volunteers for a variety of roles from Guest Speakers, Event Staff, Promotions and Board Members. Please email exec@vantug.com to join the team.

Thank You

A Very Special Thank you goes out to VanTUG Patrons for their Donations towards event costs.  VanTUG is a Volunteer Organization and your continued supports help us to bring you great events every month. Thank you very much to our Patrons and Volunteers who make every event a pleasure.
