Aras Community Network Event Highlights
Last month Motorola University hosted the 2007 Kick- off event of the Aras Community Network. We had a jam packed day, some great presenters, a full house, and lots of excitement!

People joined from as far away as Taiwan and participation crossed a broad range of industries and company sizes from Global 50 enterprises to small start-up businesses.

Everyone was energetic and engaged in the collaborative process. Emails are still coming back from attendees -- We really appreciate your enthusiasm!
