Message From Stephen Lavey, GUA Board President

The Graphical Users’ Association looks forward to welcoming you to this year’s conference in the vibrant city of Lisbon, Portugal. As always, the conference offers users of Kodak workflow solutions the unique opportunity to meet key product developers, technicians, demo and support staff. Use this chance to discuss workflow issues, projects and find solutions through a choice of tracks, workshops, panels and round-tables.

In addition, I’m happy to announce the inclusion of the GUA University, offering classes in Kodak solutions from expert Kodak instructors. I look forward to seeing you this October and sharing in the countless opportunities the GUA offers. If you’re serious about workflow, this conference is for you!
