(Northeast Fourth Street and 110th Avenue Northeast) in downtown Bellevue, near the Bellevue Transit Center, a block west of Interstate 405)

**** When you get to City Hall,  the conference room will then be straight to the back of the first floor and to your left.  You will likely have to pay for parking, using one of the surrounding paid lots.  Please don’t use their customer parking.

Vendors doing presentations –  be sure to show up by 8:30 for technical setup.  There is no room for a vendor show room this time unfortunately.  If any vendor can provide a Maximo Scheduler trainer, we could likely schedule a Bellevue training room full with attendees on the 11th or 13th.  Let us know.

Sign up through Eventbrite: https://panmu-s16.eventbrite.com.   There is lots of room, so signup will not be absolutely required, like it was at IBM’s offices.

There is no 2nd Half 2015 meeting planned. 

 We were going to try for Wenatchee, but the fires took off, and also your facilitator got busy on other projects (non-Maximo unfortunately).  Let me know if anybody else has ideas for a meeting place or wants to organize one.  Otherwise, send me ideas for putting together a meeting in 2016.

Thank you,

PANMU, Pacific Northwest MAXIMO Users, is a regional group of professionals who support and/or use IBM® MAXIMO in the workplace as well as business partners who provide support related to MAXIMO. Our membership spans mainly Washington and Oregon, and a couple other states, as well as the various industries in which MAXIMO is used. All are welcomed to join and participate, regardless of experience, area of involvement or ability to participate in 2-4 meetings a year.  Meetings are generally one day meetings in the Seattle/Bellevue area, and we are starting to schedule them in Portland as well.

Vendors, consultants and professional firms are welcomed as PANMU members, and presenters at meetings.  Many have assisted with costs incurred, such as meals, refreshments, meeting rooms, demonstrations of their products, etc, on a rotating basis.  So far our group has not collected funds, and attending meetings do not require a sponsorship fee.  


PANMU is a recognized affiliate with the Tivoli® Software Global User Group. Our "TUG" (short for Tivoli User Group) website can be seen here: PANMU TUG

Our Winter meeting covered scheduling practices, was well received, and was held February 7th, 2013 in Downtown Seattle.

Washington Holdings is hosted at the Union Square conference center (601 Union St in downtown Seattle) for the day on February 7th. 

We had over 50 attendees and had some very informative presentations.  The presentations will be attached below, once I get more allocated space.

Presentations may be viewed in the forums:

Vendors – There will be a small 2nd room with a large table.  Not enough room for a vendor show, but you can each have about a 4×4 area to put out promotional materials.

We have moved content from the prior site at www.panmu.org at end of 2012 – be sure to re-signup here!
