Campaign Statement

I have enjoyed being a part of the RMOUG community and would enjoy continuing to serve RMOUG on the board. Being a part of the board this past year and seeing first hand the impact the organization delivers drives me to continue to help RMOUG and it’s members grow and provide value. 

I know how important it is to be a part of a community where ideas and experiences can be shared, and the value and impact it can bring to members. As someone who is always looking for information on the technology that I interact with on a day-to-day basis and often more so on technology that I don't interact with but hear about frequently. Finding trusted sources takes time and filtering, building a network and relationships with people takes even more. I place high value on people networks, building teams and relationships. The people in my network have all shaped who I am today. I will forever be grateful to every one of them. I seek to help others continue to build their own networks and help continue the legacy of RMOUG as a trusted and sought-after resource.

Campaign Statement

My first exposure to RMOUG came in 2013. I was immediately impressed by the level of information provided to the attendees and have found great value in my daily work efforts. During my interaction with RMOUG, I was asked to join the board in 2013 and 2014, where I helped with expanding RMOUG’s reach via social media.

Since I’ve left Oracle, I’ve been looking for opportunities to be more involved in the regional groups and helped the user group and presenters engage with a broader audience; both regionally and globally. I hope to participate and grow the networking opportunities that RMOUG provides and continue to make RMOUG the best regional user group around!

Jeff Bugbee   Linkedin

Campaign Statement

After 28 years of active and uninterrupted RMOUG membership, I, Jeffrey Bugbee, feel overdue in giving back some of the benefits and guidance that I have received from the best professional organization to which I have belonged.  Please consider this as my announcement for candidacy on the 2023-2024 Rocky Oracle Users Group Board of Directors.

Qualifications and Biography

I am a longtime Coloradan, having received my Geology degree from the University of Colorado in 1983, and starting my career at Texaco, Inc.  Within several years, that morphed into a database support position, and I moved onto Woodward Clyde Environmental as a database administrator.  I first logged into an Oracle database in 1992 and haven’t changed course in the thirty plus years since!  In 1996, I took over as DBA for Petroleum Information, which became IHS in 1998, and eventually Standard & Poor’s in 2022.  I’m up to Oracle 19c nowadays, serving as a Data Analyst for S&P’s Energy division.

I’ve worn multiple Oracle hats during my professional journey having been a DBA, managed a global team of DBAs, developed Oracle applications, and now analyzing Oracle data for the business.  I’ve also done time in the SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and Access worlds along the way – but have always ended up liking Oracle the most, and I’ve immersed in every version of Oracle since 6.0. It’s been mainly RMOUG Training Days that have alerted and taught me about each release since, and I’m thankful for the tips and tricks gained, and the many speaker/experts who have helped me along the way.

So - my 28th straight RMOUG TD two months ago was a time for pause and accept an invitation to run for the Board.  You’ve probably seen me in the RMOUG crowd – attending at least one quarterly meeting every year, plus annual Training Days.  I’ve served as a Registration Ambassador, Room Monitor, Abstract Reviewer, and Session host – and sat through by my estimation, over 400 technical RMOUG sessions.  Along the way, I’ve accumulated a very good sense of member preferences, hot technologies, marketable database skills, and what makes a winning (or losing) Oracle presentation.

More than anything, I’ve gained a real appreciation for the value of RMOUG, and the hard work that many have put forth to make and keep it one of the most successful Oracle user groups in the world.  I’m hoping that my boardship will be meaningful and that my efforts will help RMOUG to continue its mission in serving the regional Oracle community.

Campaign Statement

One of the things that stood out to me about RMOUG was the focus on inclusivity and bringing in younger voices with fresh perspectives. The organization clearly values the importance of diverse viewpoints and creating a platform for those voices to be heard. This is something that is truly rare in the speaking industry, which can often prioritize hype/(Big 'ol Names) over substance.

The conference has truly inspired me to pursue a career as a speaker. The opportunity to share  ideas and insights with such a diverse and engaged audience has been truly rewarding for professionals, attendees and speakers . 

I am very glad to have joined the user group from 2020 grateful for the support and encouragement the team keeps giving.
