D365UG/CRMUG proudly announces the 2017 All Star and Chapter of the Year award recipients at D365UG/CRMUG Summit Nashville.

This year’s All Star award recipients are: Jennifer Codding, CMC Group; Ed Gonzales, Hampton Products International; Sarah Critchley, PowerObjects HCL; and Sarah Jelinek, Arctic IT.

The highest award given to our D365UG/CRMUG community, the All Star Award program recognizes D365UG/CRMUG members, who have a passion for Dynamics CRM and have made significant contributions of their time and expertise to the D365UG/CRMUG community. Once an individual has achieved this award, their All Star status does not expire.

“The premise of a user group is of selfless individuals who pay it forward for the betterment of others,” said Tony Stein, D365UG/CRMUG General Manager. “This year’s D365UG/CRMUG All Star winners exemplify that selflessness in a ‘for user, by user’ attitude, which enriches others across the community. These leaders are deserving, respected, and appreciated recipients.”


This year’s Chapter of the Year award recipients are: D365UG/CRMUG Tennessee (Memphis/Nashville) and D365UG/CRMUG Minnesota (Minneapolis/St. Paul).

The Chapter of the Year awards are based on the size of the Chapter and the percentage of attendance at the meetings as well as the involvement of the Chapter Leaders to drive content, promotion and attendance.

“Both local communities lead by their volunteer leaders, work tirelessly to connect users,” said Gretchen Ingbretson, D365UG/CRMUG Chapter Manager. “Combined, these chapters serve a total of over 1,200 Dynamics 365 and CRM users and members during their quarterly meetings.” 

The Gemstone Awards are awarded to user and partner member community volunteers, who play a vital role in building a strong and valuable D365UG/CRMUG community. Volunteers earn points for each volunteer activity they contribute during the annual program year. Visit our website for a full list of Gemstone Award winner names.
