Membership

If you are looking for an exciting community of professionals interested in Sybase technologies, you have come to the right place. The Sybase Users Group of Texas (SUGTX) membership is made up of technically savvy individuals in the DBA, developer, and system architect roles that work or specialize in the Sybase technology products and services.

You are invited to join the Sybase Users Group of Texas and the International Sybase User Group (ISUG). For existing members of ISUG or for people that wish to join both, the SUGTX membership fee is waved and you can join the SUGTX user group by completing the membership form below. If you wish, you may join only the Sybase Users Group of Texas. We also need to encourage membership in HAL-PC, although that is not a requirement for coming, so we need to soft-pedal this a little bit.

The Sybase Users Group of Texas is a “Chartered” Local User Group (LUG) and member of the International Sybase User Group.
