Hello IM Community! This week's edition of the “What you may have missed” blog series is a day late but with good reason. Last week, I had the opportunity to travel to our office in the great state of Colorado, where I had an opportunity to educate and drive awareness about the value of CA Engineering participation in our community! As you can imagine, this group of CA'ers are extremely busy, but as I explained, there is nothing more important than listening to the voice of our customers! I think you can expect to see an uptick in engineering participation in our community a result of this visit.  Of course, 'participation' comes in many flavors so initially I simply asked them to "listen" to what all of YOU – our customers – have to say about our products. I explained they need to understand what questions and discussions are taking place here in this community and they should also be familiar with what ideas are being requested.


As your Community Manager, I am dedicated to ensuring that the customer voice is heard and that ultimately you have a pleasant experience when engaging with us here online.  I am always open to your feedback, so please feel free to send me a message here: MelissaPotvin. Otherwise, see you online!
