The Midwest User Group originated in 1995 as the Vantage Midwest User Group (VMUG) with the sole purpose of creating a network of users with the ability to engage in open dialogue and shared solutions in using Vista and Vantage software. The group logically expanded to include the latest versions of the software, namely, Epicor.

For 2024, there is a mix of online and in-person meetings. The dates are:

  • Friday, February 16th - Virtual
  • Friday, April 19th - IN PERSON
  • Friday, July 19th - Virtual
  • Friday, September 13th - IN PERSON
  • Friday, November 15th - Virtual

The membership of EMUG/VMUG recognizes the value of the experience and knowledge among its colleagues and the virtues of users educating users. Membership consists of manufacturing and distribution organizations across a wide range of industries. While the products fabricated and distributed vary, the membership’s goal is singular: utilize the software to its fullest potential in the most cost effective, quality-focused manner.

Vendors may sponsor the organization and are invited to attend meetings where they have been pre-approved for educational presentations. A vendor membership dues invoice can be obtained online here. Only vendors or consultants presenting or hosting a pre-approved topic at a meeting will be permitted to attend that meeting. We welcome your questions and feedback; the heart and soul of the user group is interaction and participation.
