To bring together network enthusiasts in the Silicon Valley in an open forum and to provide them an enviroment that promotes learning, access to like-minded peers and Cisco resrouces for the purposes of networking technology growth.
We realize our Mission in the following manner:
- We provide an environment that encourages open discussion of technical issues and the building of learning groups.
- We provide access to eqiupment for "hands-on" experience and practical application.
- We provide industry insight and continuing education through presentations, case studies, and demonstrations by industry professionals including Cisco subject matter experts.
- We promote SVCUG members to "step up to the plate" by becoming leaders, mentors, and presentors in the group.
The Silicon Valley Cisco User Group (SVCUG) is a Bay Area Cisco User Group (CUG) that meets regulary for the purpose of learning Cisco technologies, growing in network knowledge, and sharing user experiences.
The SVCUG offers three meetings a month (One Monthly Meeting & Two Saturday Labs). The Saturday Labs offer members a place to meet and to use Cisco equipment provided by us. The Monthly Meeting is used for technical presentations. Typically, a Cisco subject matter expert will deliver a Cisco technology presentation - but, on occasion, we will have someone outside of Cisco deliver a networking related talk.

Now, I'm no math wiz but if you carry the zero over ... it comes out to ... FREE :)
All kidding aside, we have been asked about the cost to join. It's free. You are free to come and go as you please at any time. This is a way that we help give back. The most valuable thing here is YOUR time.
On occassion, we like to do a few extra special things for the SVCUG meetings and ask for donations to do so. These are few, far between, and always feed right back into the CUG.
