The IDEA User Group was established in 1991 as a non-profit organisation, independent of the developers and distributors of IDEA, whose objective is the promotion of a free exchange of ideas, information, and experiences between users of IDEA.
The User Group is managed by a steering committee elected by its own members. Whilst independent of both CaseWare Inc. (IDEA developers) and AuditWare Systems Ltd. (UK distributors), the User Group maintains close links to both companies, who support their efforts and regularly contribute to their meetings.
The main responsibility of the User Group steering committee is to organise twice yearly meetings, currently held in central London and Scotland. At these meetings, you can hear a variety of presentations including technical advice on the use of IDEA from developers and support staff, and also on use of IDEA within their organisations from other members of the User Group.
