I am speaking at the Dayton SharePoint User Group October 8, 2013


I will be speaking at the Dayton SharePoint User Group this month. This is my first ever presentation at the user group.


Date:  Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Location: Vana Solutions, Beavercreek, Ohio

Topic: The evolution of the SharePoint Administrator – the future is bright!

Summary: ​So the rumor mill with cloud and Office365 states that SharePoint administration is a dying skillset, huh?  Tony Maddin begs to differ.  Tony will highlight areas to enhance your professional development so new skillsets can be required to future proof your role as it transforms from an “Administrator” into the future of an “Integrator.”


DAYSPUG turns 3 years old!

Dayspug-Logo-2It seems like yesterday.  We had some great speakers, topics, and a national SharePoint Saturday Dayton event.

SharePoint Saturday Dayton a success!

2012_SPS_Logo_300I am very proud to announce the first annual SharePoint Saturday Dayton was a success!

The turn out was pretty decent.  However, we had a nasty storm come through on Friday, June 29, 2012 that brought about a lot of weather related damage and power outages in the area.

This contributed to perhaps a few people not being able to attend.  However, the people that did register and was able to arrive at the event seemed to have a great time.



I personally want to thank the SharePoint Saturday Dayton committee members who made this happen.  This was a team effort!

  • Stacy Deere
  • Sean McDonough
  • Mike Smith
  • Angela Koch
  • Clint Richardson
  • Nikole Maddin
  • Stephanie Donahue
  • Allison Chirstman
  • Brittany Strole

Thank you all!!!

SharePoint Saturday Dayton

SharePointSaturdaySmallI have always thought about wanting to do a SharePoint Saturday in Dayton, Ohio while I was starting the Dayton SharePoint User Group. 

I am very happy to announce the SharePoint Saturday event is stopping here in Dayton, Ohio for the first time.  This is not just a “me” thing to make this happen.  I am very fortunate to have met and teamed up with a great group of passionate and dedicated people to form a committee to make this event a success.

Dayton Microsoft IT Pro Camp


January 18, 2012 – Dayton, Ohio.  – The Dayton Area Network Professional Association put together a great one day event.  The vibe during the entire event was great and people seem to really enjoy the information and networking opportunities that were presented for the day. 


I was very fortunately to be selected as a presenter during one of the day’s SharePoint session tracks.   My topic I chose for the day was, “How to organize the document clutter in your SharePoint environment.”  Also, DANPA was generous to give me a DAYSPUG booth for the event so I can continue spreading the word about the Dayton SharePoint User Group.
