Dynamic Communities, the supporting organization behind the official user groups for Microsoft Dynamics® 365 & AX (D365UG/AXUG), Microsoft Dynamics® 365 & CRM (D365UG/CRMUG), Microsoft Dynamics® GP (GPUG), Microsoft Dynamics SL (DSLUG), Microsoft Dynamics® NAV (NAVUG), and Microsoft Power BI (PUG) products, announced a new Chairman for the D365UG/AXUG Board, effective January 2018.

Grant Wilson will be transitioning the D365UG/AXUG Chairman role to Kelly Kane, a D365UG/AXUG member who has been heavily involved in the User Group by serving as the Kentucky Chapter Leader, hosting multiple sessions at Summit as well as being a Summit planning committee track leader. Kane has also been recently awarded the first and only female user MVP for Microsoft Dynamics AX. Wilson will remain involved with the User Group communities and will act in an advisory position on the Board of Directors.

“I am looking forward to 2018 and all of the good things to come. The User Group is thriving and growing, and the participation of the user community is the most I have ever seen since becoming a member,” said Kelly Kane.

“D365UG/AXUG has experienced amazing growth not only with new, engaged members, but also with better relationships within Microsoft and partners as well as stellar learning and networking opportunities. It is without any doubt that many of the wins D365UG/AXUG has experienced is directly related to the strong commitment from our D365UG/AXUG Board of Advisors, including the leadership of past Chairman, Grant Wilson,” said Heather Williams, General Manger, D365UG/AXUG. “Through Grant’s passion and commitment to the success of D365UG/AXUG, our community has navigated some rough waters to create a tide that lifts all ships for success.  We will be forever grateful to the guidance Grant has given to this community.”

Dynamic Communities is the business management organization that supports technology-centric user groups and associations – providing necessary resources and business operations such as staff, systems and event production. Dynamic Communities is independent from Microsoft; however, the two organizations maintain an intentional close working relationship so that user group members can provide a collective voice to Microsoft on user concerns, needs, and requests.
